Outline

How to build your goal pyramid?

Goal pyramid

Draw a triangle and divide into three parts.

In the top section write down what you want to accomplish, for example:

  • Sell your wife's silk paintings on the internet.
  • Change your family's eating habits towards a healthier and more sustainable diet.
  • Spend less time on writing reports.

In the middle section write down your intermediate goals - steps you need to take in order to get closer to your main goal.

In the bottom section write down your short-term goals - tasks you have undertake in order to implement the intermediate goals.

Variation: you can draw a goal pyramid to set a time frame for reaching your goal.
