Most of us have heard of S.M.A.R.T. goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-Bound. However, sometimes they can add more busy-ness and clutter to our lives without any real accomplishment. And sometimes, well, they can just be plain boring, which doesn’t motivate or inspire us for the long term. Achievable is necessary for goals… for example, a 5’2″, 42 year old woman, will never be an official NFL football player. However, the other 4 rules can and should be broken from time to time.
So, if you’re in a rut, feel stuck, or just want more purpose in your life, then try setting some D.U.M.B. goals!
D.U.M.B. goals are:
Daring ~ Step outside the status quo. Buck the trends. Be authentic.
Uncomfortable ~ Feel the fear and do it anyway. The route to happiness is not by avoiding unhappiness. We learn more from difficulty than comfort.
Magnetic ~ Leverage the Laws of Attraction. You should be captivated by your goals and you should captivate others with your goals.
Bold ~ The only risk in life is not taking one.
