In the latest issue of Squirrel Hill magazine, JF&CS’s Squirrel Hill Psychological Services therapist Wendy Levin-Shaw, LCSW, talks about the importance of setting goals.
I remember some time ago reading a reference to goal-setting that I thought was excellent: “instead of letting life happen to you, goals allow you to make your life happen.”
You don’t have to be a contestant on “The Biggest Loser” or an employee participating in an annual review to set goals. Goal-setting is simply an organized personal planning process that helps you define what you want, long-term and short-term, and focus on achieving it.
This edition of Squirrel Hill Magazine focuses on issues affecting women, and the article is written from that perspective, but whether you’re a woman or a man, you should find this article a useful tool in learning to set and work toward achieving your goals. Enjoy!
