Defining Yourself

Defining Yourself

We often attend business meetings where corporate goals are discussed.  But how often do you do that for yourself? Are your personal goals defined? And what about family goals? Or the goals you have with your significant other?

I just read this article on from Brian Rumao, Chief of Staff to the CEO at LinkedIn, talking about how you can use the “Corporate” format of a company definition, and use it in your personal life.

Defining who you are, is the most important thing you could ever gift yourself.

Take a minute and pretend your life is a business, YOU are the CEO, and your currency is Happiness, Joy, and Love.

What actions will make you happy?

Who loves you enough to be okay with who you decide to be, and will help you uphold that promise to yourself?

What goals and ambitions will bring the most joy into your life?

Have a ‘board meeting’ with yourself, your family, and/or your significant other.  Being on the same page with yourself, and those around you, helps define who you are, stay true to what you need and want, and it gives a direction to your life.

Clarity is something that is missing for a lot of people. It’s hard to stay on track with your goals when they’re not defined and prominently relevant in each day.  I know because I’ve done it.  And without having my family there to remind be who I am, and what I’m really about, who knows where I’d be right now.

We were given this life to create something beautiful and amazing…a space for us and our loved ones to enjoy. So, get clear with yourself and a significant other or two, stop piddling around, and make that happen.

Please share some of your goals in the comments below! Look forward to your sharing.
