So, what are the goals that you want to accomplish in 2018?
Then ask yourself, does the actions that I need to take to achieve this goal align with my values?
Your values are your guide, your North Star. They direct your horsemanship journey (and your life journey). The goals that you set for yourself are the things that you do along the way, the mile markers so to speak. If your goals are not aligned with your values, the mile markers that you pass won't direct you to where you want to go.
For example, if you value Adventure, and your goals lead to spending lots of time in an arena, you probably won’t be as happy with your horsemanship journey as if your goals included trail rides to new places.
So how else can you ensure that you are setting effective goals that you will actually achieve?
