Meet the expert - Adam Jelic on Goal Setting
I actually first started setting goals when I was 16 years old. At the time I had dreams of becoming a professional soccer player, and was looking for ways to give me the edge. I started reading biographies about successful athletes, entrepreneurs and there was a common theme of them talking about goal setting. I was curious about it and the more I researched, the more I realised it was a tool that could help gain clarity, focus and clear direction in my personal and professional life.
With so many opportunities and paths available to us how do we tune in to what we really want out of life and what we should be focusing on?
Core Values, Purpose, Vision and Joy.
Can you break down the steps to setting and achieving a goal?
Choose the right goals and make a detailed plan in order to achieve those goals. Tell someone who cares, the people around you can be motivators. Do the work, check In often and most importantly, enjoy the process.
Is it better to have one big overarching ‘dream goal’ or lots of small ones?
I think the key is to have a compelling vision / dream that inspires you, excites you and then underneath that have smaller goals that help you turn that vision/dream into reality. The pursuit of progress towards something that matters is key, growth and fulfilment come from the small steps we take everyday towards our vision and purpose.
Either a good book, watching a podcast on youtube - of late I'm loving the Rich Roll podcast and can't skip past the Joe Rogan Experience.
My biggest inspiration in my life has been my 2 girls, they inspire me to be better and do better every single day.
