Spoke-and-wheel goal setting

Break down a big goal into smaller pieces by envisioning a wheel and spokes.

At the hub is your long-term goal. The spokes radiating from the hub are what determine your daily actions.

Your long-term goal might be to improve your health. One spoke that flows from that goal might be to lose 15 pounds.

So the daily activities attached to that particular spoke might include visiting a gym, waking up 30 minutes early for a walk, making an appointment with your doctor, or bringing healthy snacks to work.

Tip: Every day, make a list of the six most important things you can do to move forward on your spokes. No more than six. Schedule time into your calendar every day to make progress. If you don’t finish, roll the items over to the next day and finish the holdovers first.

Bonus: You’ll have a written record of tangible steps you’ve taken toward your big goals.
