Coaching: Setting Goals and Making Plans


There are a lot of great quotes regarding goal setting and planning. One of my favorite is: “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there.” (Through the Looking-Glass, Lewis Carroll)

As I walked into Golds Gym the other day to work out, this one caught my eye:
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”(Antoine de Saint-Exupery, French writer)

When I coach church planters, one of the benefits that they mention more than anything else is the focus they gain in goal setting and action steps. (In fact, I heard this again today from a church planter in Portugal).

If you’ve never worked with a coach, you may be wondering how this happens. It is actually a result of the collaborative process that happens in a coaching conversation. A coach asks powerful questions that raise awareness regarding what is most important.

I’ve seen this happen over and over again when I’ve been coached. I gain clarity that results in specific action steps.

Most people are not struggling to identify their dreams. They struggle to set realistic goals and to develop the specific plan to get them there.

This is one of the things that I love about my coaching relationships. I get to help you gain the clarity and focus you need to succeed.

Stop wishing that you will attain your dreams. Find a coach who will empower you to set goals and make plans to get there!
