2023 Life Coach goals banner

Welcome to My 2023 Goals page.

Every year I set for myself a long list of goals I want to accomplish. I’ve been doing this for over 12 years now. And this year is no exception. 

Setting ambitious goals is a great way to dramatically improve your life but also a great way of self-discovery.

Or as David Goggins said:

“I don’t know where my limits are, but I want to go there”

I set my goals in various areas of my life, such as: Business, Coaching, Personal life, Health & Fitness, Profile, and Value.

Since 2017, I’ve been sharing my goals publicly along with monthly updates on my progress.

You may be asking… Why?

THESE are my five reasons

  1. For those who are thinking of working with me, I want to show that I walk my talk.
  2. I want others to see me fail. Wait, what? That’s right. Failure is an essential part of progress. Pursuing ambitious goals never goes smooth. That’s part of the game. I hope that when others see me facing my challenges, they will drop the idea of perfectionism and get on with their goals and dreams.
  3. I want to inspire you to be more courageous with your own goals, and be more driven, committed and disciplined.
  4. I want to show you how I get stuff done, how I set goals and how I work towards them so you can apply it for your own growth.
  5. Lastly, when I share my goals with you all it creates the pressure and accountability I need (and want) to push myself. (Trust me, I don’t always feel like it either. But so what?)

Reflection: I came close but was missing about 10%. Next year I want to create more content to bring more visitors to my website and optimise SEO. 

500 Lifestyle scorecards completed

Why:  The Lifestyle Scorecard is a free diagnostic tool people can use to get a better understanding of why they may not be getting the results they want.

Reflection/Actions: Fell quite short with this goal. There are several other freebies on my website that people can download, so this one naturally faces some competition. I could have promoted it more aggressively. 

1000 Self-discipline scorecards completed

Why: The Self Discipline Scorecard is free diagnostic tool people can use to get a better understanding of what areas of self-discipline they need to improve.

Reflection/Actions: Selling courses is harder than it looks, haha. However, considering I’ve done relatively little to promote it, this is not a bad result. Of course, 50 would be better. 

Develop New Coaching Programme

Why: I have several ideas for new coaching programmes focused on achieving specific results. I’d love to launch specialised coaching programmes. 

NEW PROGRAMMES

  • Progress 55% 55%
Monthly progress

Reflection: Before starting something new, I want to make sure I’m maximising what I have. I have several ideas for new programmes but I don’t have the capacity at the moment. 

Outsource more of my business tasks to talented freelancers

Why: As my business grows, I need to build a capable team so that I can focus more on high-level tasks. 

TASKS OUTSOURCED

Monthly progress

Reflection: I’ve hired several great freelancers this year who’ve helped me with various tasks. It’s impossible to scale business on your own. This is something I’ll keep developing in 2024. 

Website Update/Redesign

Why: I want to update a number of pages on my website to be more appealing and reflective of what I do. 

  • Progress 100% 100%
Monthly progress

August: New Homepage

Reflection/Actions: The project of redesigning my homepage proved to be a lot more difficult and stressful than I expected. I’ve learned that no one will ever care as much as you do. While we’ve got there in the end, there were a lot of broken eggs while making this omelette. 

Work with a coach/mentor

Why: Working with a coach/mentor is one of the fastest ways to grow. If you don’t have one, get one. 

  • Progress 100% 100%

Reflection/Actions: I’ve worked with my long-term mentor, who has been extremely valuable.

January: Joined a Mastermind.

Reflection/Actions: I’ve joined a mastermind which has been useful. It’s important to join one where people are on a similar level and have similar drive and ambitions. You must be able to give a lot and get a lot.

Reflection/Actions: This year I had fewer consultations than usual. The main reason was that I had a big influx of new clients in January and had to slow down my marketing as I did not have capacity to take on new clients. The key metric for me is the number of clients so I’m adjusting the number of consultations to that. 

40 new inspiring clients

Why: I can only work with a limited number of clients. Over the last few years, 40 has been a sweetspot for me.

Reflection/Actions: Getting to 70 is a tough challenge. I’ve posted and interacted a lot on Linkedin this year. Can’t quite imagine what more I could or should be doing to get to 70+. All in all, it’s a bit of an arbitrary goal as ranking 70+ won’t pay my bills or make me any better coach 😊

SPEAK OR PRESENT ONLINE/LIVE AT LEAST 10 TIMES

Why: In 2014, I was absolutely terrified of the idea of me speaking in front of people. I decided to challenge my fear, and since then, I have spoken at over 120 events and workshops.

Reflection/Actions: I gave it a good push towards the end of the year and published quite a few videos. 24 videos goal was totally realistic but I didn’t make time for it for the first 8 months and then it was challenging to catch up with it. 

PUBLISH 24 ARTICLES

Why: Writing regular articles is not only a great way to share value and develop a closer relationship with my audience but also to bring more traffic to my website and boost its SEO.

Reflection/Actions: Being active is very important to me. I want to stay in shape. This year I’ve focused a lot on running. Next year I want to balance it with overall strength training as well. 

Weigh 78kg or be 16% BODY FAT

Why: I want to be fitter and leaner. This goal has two parts. I’d be happy with either, whichever comes first. It depends on my body composition.

Reflection/Actions: Even though I’ve run a lot, I’ve found it quite tricky to balance staying fueled and losing weight. I certainly could have been stricter about what I ate but I found that being in calorie deficit a lot had an impact on my running. 

Do 100 PUSH-UPS IN ONE GO

JOURNAL 100 TIMES

Why:Why: Journaling is an invaluable way to gain clarity, think through your ideas and challenges. It’s also a great place to rant and complain so you don’t bother the world with it. No one is interested.

    I’ve been more than inspired by your goals, your structure and your progress over these last 2 years and have been working on my own goals much more diligently because of it. So I first wanted to simply thank you for sharing this time and time again as it continues to motivate and inspire me to continuous improvement.

    I am curious though how you measure all thesr goals. Do you have some form of automation setup from apps which populate an Excell sheet or other virtual type of table with the data or do you manually keep track of all of them and update the totals each every month?

    I’m looking to do something similar with my own Goals and have tried several approaches, but the constant manual tracking is something I want to avoid as much as possible.

    I’d love to hear how you’ve been tackling this and your approach.

    Thanks and stay Awesome !!

      Hi Marc, thanks a lot for your comment and for following my journey over the years.
      As for the tracking system – I have a google sheet with all the goals and monthly updates + totals (also the % etc). I update it once a month and decide what to focus on in the next month based on the progress.
      I’ve looked into various systems to automate the updates but it would require so much setting up and automation (as the goals are across various data sources such as google analytics, strava, etc) that its faster to update the spreadsheet manually every month.
      It’s also a bit more mindful process of doing it as I don’t just glance over the results but check them manually and fill them in. It takes time, especially if you have some 60 goals, but the benefit of tracking it massively outweigh the effort.
      Depending on your goals, Zapier is an extremely capable platform through which you can automate a lot. Probably not the answer you were hoping for, haha.

        Hi Tomas,

        It was not the answer I was hoping for, but more or less the one I was expecting to be honest 🙂 I use a similar system, but track things in Notion which allows for several automatic calculations to see how I am doing in regards to reaching my goals (like the nice graphs you have on this site).

        The biggest ‘pain in the *ss’ is filling out the ‘checklists’ on a daily or weekly schedule. If I do that only once a month I will loose track of a lot of things as most don’t automatically track things which I could connect to Zapier or the sorts.

        I do agree that taking the time to manually do them is a much more mindful proces and does tie me in to the actions and the results a lot more as well. It’s just that I simply don’t really like the act of keeping track of things when you have a lot of habits and goals setup (like the both of us).

        So I was hoping for some sort of (quick) fix in this case, but I guess like all things that really matter in life: you just have to put the hard work in if you want to get the results 🙂

        Keep doing what you do in any case and stay Awesome !!

    1. Cool way of sharing your goals publicly, thanks for your transparency!
    2. Powerful way of doing what you’re preaching and making yourself accountable
    3. I wish such tools or site would allow me to share mine in the same way

    Doing it similarly in excel, monthly/yearly based on my 10years vision board.
    If you have time one day, I’d love to run you through it get your thoughts.

      Hi Alexis, thanks for the comment. You can always share it in form of a blog or newsletter.
      I track mine in Excel as well. Great and simple tool.
