Maumelle Goal Setting Help

Setting Goals in Maumelle, AR—Goal Setting Help

What does your calendar hold for you today? You probably have work to do—both personal and professional. If you are like most people, you will be punching the clock at your job, paying bills, running errands—all the “have tos” of life. You most likely have a few “want tos” sprinkled in when there is time—grabbing lunch with a friend, volunteering for a cause that matters, watching a movie with a loved one. It can feel like what people have to do dominates their calendar while what they want to do is left for if or when there happens to be time. However, many people are working to reverse that ratio—building in more of what they want to do in life, and they are taking back their calendars through setting strategic and important goals.

“The thing about goals is that living without them is a lot more fun,
in the short run. It seems to me, though, that
the people who get things done, who lead,
who grow and who make an impact… those people have goals.”
—Seth Godin

Considerable research recounts and explores the relationship between goal setting and achievement. People can often accomplish extraordinary feats when they clarify their values, define a process, and set a deadline. Nonetheless, many people do not utilize this proven process, and Seth Godin explains why. An effective process and an easy process are two different paths. Accomplishment often requires a short-term price for long-term dividends.

There are no by-passes around the dedication and work it takes to accomplish anything worthy, but there is help and support that can make the process better. Many people are reaching out to life coaches and counselors for goal setting help.

More and more, the professionals at Thriveworks Maumelle are helping people add more “want to” to their calendar. Our counselors and coaches know what it takes to overcome the short-term price and reach a long-term success.

Structuring a Goal for Success

The best goals bring excitement and inspiration into daily, mundane life. They can add motivation and focus to the most miserable tasks. How do they accomplish so much? Excellent goals tap into people’s own values and priorities—capitalizing on their talents, skills, and resources. There is a big internal element to well-set goals. However, goals never stay internally focused. No, the whole point of a goal is to stretch people—pushing them beyond their comfort zone. This requires a significant amount of self-awareness—people need to know where they are and where they want to go. Often, a life coach or counselor can assist people in this process.

Once a goal is set, it needs to take a particular structure to be most effective. The details of a goal are unique, but the structure is not. Excellent goals are often…

  • Time-bound: Each goal needs a time frame. Deadlines should be challenging but realistic. In the midst of a time-bound goal, people have a light at the end of the tunnel—they know when their sacrifice will end, and they are often motivated to accomplish the task.
  • Specific: The best goals express important details, and thus, they can be measured. For example, a vague goal is, “spend more time with my family.” A specific goal is, “visit my grandma twice this month.”
  • Written: People often take goals that they have documented more seriously. Written goals can be revisited and can command people’s attention.
  • Shared: Everyone needs help as they pursue a goal. People can recruit allies by letting people who will support them know about their goals. They can ask for tangible help when appropriate.

Aiming for Diverse Targets

Because goals are expressions of people’s values, the types of goals people set should reflect all the diverse facets of their life. Setting a variety of goals also can make the process more fun. People can set goals for work, but they can also set a goal about taking more vacation time. Anything that people can to achieve can be turned into a goal. For example, goals can be…

  • Artistic Endeavors: How can people express their creativity or support others’ artistic expression?
  • Attitude: What character traits to people want to practice?
  • Finances: How can people spend their money in a way that reflects their purpose in life?
  • Education: What experiences or ideas do people want to explore?
  • Career: Where do people want to dedicate their professional time and energy?
  • Fun: What makes people smile and fills their hearts with joy?
  • Family: How do people want to build their home life? What type of relationships do they want to establish or improve?
  • Physical Strength: What adjustments in their health routines could improve people’s well-being? How can people grow stronger?

Thriveworks Counseling Maumelle

Better than I imagined!!!

I cannot say enough good about this place. They honestly do strive to get you in to see a practitioner quickly. And the importance of being seen soon to someone who is at a bad psychological point cannot be understated. It can, literally, mean the difference between life and death. After years of no longer being able to trust mental health providers due to so much misdiagnosis I reached out to Thriveworks. I asked for a particular practitioner, and they had me in to see her the following day. Kristy's approach was welcoming, empathetic, friendly, and down-to-earth. She did not speak down to me as a patient, but she made a comfortable effort to connect from the beginning. Gaining my trust over several weeks she was able to start showing me some things no one ever took the time to extract. She found me at the precipice of a terrible situation and worked me back from the ledge. Her input to Zack, along with his personable and empathetic personality, finally got me on medications that actually have improved my situation more than I could have ever imagined. The combination of her therapy and the medications have me, for the first time in decades, recognizing a hope for the future. All I can say is if you are that person who has lost hope and feels as though you have no purpose, let the Thriveworks team have a chance to show you a you even you didn't know existed. Without hyperbole I can honestly say I owe my life going forward to Kristy and Zack.

Zack’s Great

Zacks a wonderful guy to see. He really listens to all your concerns and explains your treatment options in detail. Anyone that sees him is going to feel comfortable talking to him and not have that feeling as if your talking to a stranger.

I've dealt with severe anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember, and have seen multiple providers to try and get control of my emotions. I thought I was a lost cause until I found Zack. He was the first "medicine guy" that I met with that actually got me! He has a calming demeanor and had me very comfortable from the very first appointment. He's easy to work with and actually cares about how I'm feeling! Seeing Zack was the best decision I could have made. Now I'm feeling much better and finally feel like I can breathe. Thank you Zack and Thriveworks for all you do!
