10 Goals for the Woman Who Doesn’t Know What Her Goals Should Be

10 Goals for the Woman Who Doesn’t Know What Her Goals Should Be

Too often we make the mistake of setting goals for one or a few areas of our lives and neglecting others. We have these big ideas about how we want to succeed, make money and provide for our families but we neglect to set goals that actually ensure we’re giving our loved ones the best of us.

We have clear targets for the work we want to accomplish and how long we want to spend working, but fail to account for our health and vitality that is so crucial to our ability to accomplish those career goals.

But there are also those times when we are tired, overwhelmed and unable to set one more goal. We might feel a sense of shame at our failure to meet past goals or even an overwhelming sense that nothing matters anyway. We think, Why bother, since the world is in such a mess?

But the truth is that we have a future, and a hope created especially for us by our God and Father in heaven. We have the opportunity to do life with the ones we love and make the best of every moment. We also have a responsibility to nurture our bodies, maximize our God-given time and gifts in order to achieve His purpose.

So, if you’re not sure what your goals should be here are 10 that should give you a sense of direction.

  • 3. A goal for your commitment to do His will:

    There will be lots of opportunities for you to take the more popular path. It might be because it’s easy or because you don’t want to be or look different. Maybe it’s time to commit to doing God’s will no matter what. Best to make that decision long before the temptation to jump ship ever arises.

  • 7. A goal to love your neighbor:

    Your neighbor is anyone you may come across, anywhere at any time. How will you spread the love of Christ to the people that cross your path? How might you be able to look beyond your opinions, biases and preconceived notions in order to be the hands and feet of Jesus?

  • 9. A goal to learn more about the world:

    How much do you know about the world we live in? The people, places, cultures, and perspectives. Set a goal to learn something new every so often. Become a citizen of the world.

  • 10. A goal to be present in every moment:

    Time passes swiftly, work piles faster than you can sort through it and precious moments are lost in the concerns of day to day life. Make it a goal to be present in your life. For yourself, your loved ones and your God.
