How to Set Goals for 2022
The 3X3 Framework
As we approach New Year’s Eve we are all starting to think about what we want to accomplish in 2022. I have received several requests from students and friends asking me about my approach to setting my goals. Below I will introduce you to the 3X3 Method.
The 3X3 Method
Every year I pick three areas I want to focus on. My focus areas for the past 4-5 years have been:
Then, under each area, I set three goals. For example, under professional, which is the easiest for me to identify, I set the following goals:
Goal 1- Teaching
Goal 2- Research
Goal 3- Services
Similarly, I do the same for financial and personal goals. I haven’t filled out my goals for 2022 yet. During the last week of the year I spend time reflecting on the past year. Reflection allows me to start setting my intentions on what I want to accomplish in the three focus areas.
Check out the video for more detailed breakdown of my approach. What is your approach to setting your goals for the next year? Keep following as I share my goals with you in January.
