25 Must Ask Questions When Goal Setting

Let’s be honest, goal setting can be difficult! While all goals should be SMART (Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant & Timely), it is equally necessary to leverage subjective questions allowing yourself to really dig in and set some dynamic goals. We have compiled a list of some of our faves, sit down and journal, or get together with a couple accountability buddies or your partner, and discuss:

  1. What does your ideal day look like?
  2. What did you want to be when you were younger?
  3. Who are you most inspired by? Why?
  4. What habit would you most like to break/ start?
  5. Think of a person you truly admire. What qualities do you like about that person?
  6. How do you like to relax?
  7. What are you most afraid of? When was the last time you did something you were afraid of?
  8. What are you most proud of? When were you most proud recently?
  9. How do you reward yourself?
  10. If life stopped today, what would you regret not doing?
  11. Who would you like to connect (or reconnect) with? Why?
  12. What qualities do you admire in others?
  13. What practical skills do you wish you had?
  14. Imagine you’re in your 90s. What memories would you like to have? What stories do you want to tell?
  15. What is your favorite book/movie/song? Why?
  16. If you could make one change in the world, what would it be?
  17. What is your favorite way to give to others?

  19. What do you wish you did more of?
  20. Pretend money is no object, what would you do?
  21. What area of your life, right now, makes you feel the best?
  22. Which area makes you feel the worst? Why?
  23. Let’s jump forward a year. What would you like to have achieved in the past year?
  24. What piece of advice would you give to 5 year old you? 16 year old you? 21 year old you?
