It is important to understand when setting a goal whether it is a finite goal, i.e. a task that can be completed and checked off a list, or a repetitive goal such as forming a weekly habit of meditation. 

If you are setting a finite goal you might want to think about:  

  • A deadline – when you would like to achieve the goal by?  
  • A plan – what are the steps you must take to achieve this goal? 
  • Resources – what can support you with achieving this goal? 

When setting repetitive goals, you might consider: 

  • Regularity – how often do you want to repeat this goal or action?
  • Routine – will repeating the action at the same time each week support you to maintain this goal? 
  • Longevity – for how long do you plan to repeat this goal?
