Sustainable, Lasting, and Life-Giving Goals Are:

- Organically growing out of your context
- Outlined for clarity

Last week, we discussed the importance of finding the overlap between your core calling goals, your starting point, and your deepest long-term priorities. It is in this intersection that we can find goals that are Organically Growing Out of Your Context—goals that make sense for you, where you are, today, and that act as a bridge to help you get to the next level.
