Goal Setting & Planning

After a two-year journey of self-discovery, we would continue helping our participants steer their life confidently and independently as we would urge you to

• Stop setting goals for the wrong reason
• Choose a goal to create a journey

Instead of setting life goals, think about setting a life direction. Figure out the things that would create a fun, meaningful and compelling journey. Your life is too precious to settle for less than extraordinary, so know your vision, know your goals and no more wandering around like Alice in the Wonderland!

Without Written Goals, You’re Alice in the Wonderland!

In Lewis Carrol’s classic, Alice wanders around Wonderland aimlessly. When she bumps into Cheshire Cat she asks him for directions. The cat responds:

“That depends on a good deal on where you want to get to.” Alice says, “I don’t much care where.” The cat then comments, “Then it doesn’t matter which way you walk.”

We are in agreement with Cheshire cat! Because the secret of high achievers in life is Effective Goal Setting! If you have no clear vision or goals, you might as well be running around in the forest with a faulty compass. You can wander around never making it anywhere worthwhile unless you happen to run into it by chance.


In this journey of self-discovery your Life Coach, Medeeha Khan, would take you through following milestones while working on self-audits, group activities, video learning, presentations & case studies and a lot more interventions.
