7 Types of Goals to Make In Life

Usually we're creating short term - long term goals, but there are 7 other goals that can be made that are more specific then short term or long term. Below is an infographic/flyer that breaks down the 7 other goals you can make:

7 Goals to Make In Life


These goals usually reference to a specific achievement that you want to accomplish. Achievement goals are major life goals, like retiring at age 30 with millions of dollars. Because these goals are major, meaning huge, and require time to eventually be completed, it's best to break these goals down into smaller goals. That way you'll be able to track your progress.


Actionable goals requires you doing a specific action to accomplish the goal. Think of action goals as tasks that need to get done. For example, setting up a meeting with your mentor about reaching your business goals. Action goals can go hand in hand with achievement goals; achievement goals are accomplished through action goals or smaller tasks.


Limit goals set boundaries and time frames. The problem with setting goals is actually accomplishing them, but with limits we put pressure on ourselves to be actionable and meet the goal. Limits can be a time or circumstance. For example, I have a goal to go to bed every night no later than 11PM, so that I can wake up by 6AM. 


These are goals gathered by rates or done repeatedly overtime. We usually set rate goals when it comes to daily or weekly tasks. Most of our personal growth activities or goals can be viewed through rate goals such as write everyday at 6AM, workout everyday, etc.


Simply put, exclusion goals are goals that you do not want to do. When it comes to our yearly resolutions they tend to be a combination of a lot of goals, but usually exclusion goals, things we don't want to do and promise not to do.


These goals are exactly what they are: layered, based off importance. Sometimes we have so many life goals and we want to accomplish them all at once, but it's best to layer them. Start by layering them from important to not important, but if that is still too confusing, you can layer them low to high. All of your low goals are weeks to months in advance, but your high goals are ones that you should complete soon or here in the present.


These goals are wild, really optimistic, and farfetched. Sometimes we create farfetched goals, goals that we want to happen, but don't know for sure. I have an incredible goal of making the New York's Bestsellers list. I'm not saying that it can't happen but it would be incredible for it to actually happen.

What goes have you made for yourself?
