The following is just some notes I made in relation to the questions in the last post. While they are not in any particular order they will give you an idea of my thought processes in finally putting together ideas for my final goals.
A lot of this post is just notes, not a particularly coherent piece of text but as I start putting everything together, this will make sense (at least to me). Maybe as you read through them it will trigger some things that you have overlooked in your own answers. I reccomend that you look through and ask yourself if this relates to you as well. They are intended as a helpful guide for you as well as give you some understanding of me.

*What is stopping me from getting started in life changed. What are my faults.
- risking feeling like a failure and losing face. Not wanting to loose current lifestyle. Money restraints. ,motivation – I want to but need to push myself. Time limitations – need to work more to promote business and seem to run out of hours in the day. Easily distracted. Lack of willpower – easy to get off course. Lack of determination, can’t seem to focus when required. Need to be more determined to make the necessary sacrifices.

*What are my physical, emotional & structural Assets and Liabilities
Ability to work most weekends to promote existing business yet still find time to build an online business and website
As I travel, I can think things through and review writings – from the passenger seat.
Most weeks I have at least one free day to build my online business and website as well as most evenings.
I have my laptop, printer and wifi and am willing to continue to learn.
I don’t need to outlay a lot of money to start up
We have a mining claim and gold detectors already, so this hobby can form part of my website.
low personal expenses. No rent or rates. Willing to live simply when required.
lots of notes from the past 30 years to work though again and build date to begin my website.
As a business, many of my costs are currently associated with the business and therefore tax deductible so new online and website will also form part of the business.
Liabilities. Not too many, mainly I do procrastinate and need to set myself goals and gain some focus.
*What do I need to work on, improve
- talking to people more
- listen to their ideas
- discuss health & beauty
- routines for beauty, housework, internet research, fitness
Now I know what to work on, I need to set some clear goals or views of the future. Again this is a though process of how to take action.
for every goal I need to take action, plan, find bad habit and replace with alternative. Take action, continually review and react. Small baby steps .
Look ahead – to see where I want to be and what steps I need to take me there.
Goals – What is the purpose. Desire it, plan it, remind do it.
how can I increase the value of what I want to be
daily lists – whats important today. What will make a different, pleasure every day.
Whats the worst that can happen if I succeed, don’t do this. More of the same.
How can I have the best state of mind. Smile, happy, cheerful, determined
As I ask quality questions I hope to get quality answers
I need to work out what to focus on, what is important.
I also need a time frame for each goal. What order to take, what skills are required, what habits to start and finish.
Then once I have set some goals I need to work through again, brainstorm, and continually change as I grow and change.
I hope these will help with your goal setting ideas. My aim with this website is to help people have the freedom to travel and enjoy life. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know if this has helped you at all
