Goals & Tasks

Setting clear and meaningful goals is a fundamental aspect of improving your Current Situation, to reflect your Values & your Vision.

In the Goalmuse templates, there is only place for 3 (yes, three) goals . . and for each goal, only 3 tasks.

The “Power of Three” is an effective approach to goal setting that focuses on prioritization and simplicity. Identify three key goals that align with your Values and your Vision in each Life Area. Keep them concise and actionable. Break each goal into three smaller tasks or milestones, ensuring they are measurable and attainable. By limiting the number of goals and tasks, you maintain focus, increase motivation, and enhance productivity. Embrace the Power of Three to streamline your goal-setting process and experience greater clarity, momentum, and success in achieving your desired outcomes.
