Creating Goals

Determined2Heal Tips:

Being goal oriented is a major factor in living a productive life, especially with a spinal cord injury. Creating goals helps an individual focus on something productive rather dwelling on their injury. I try to stay as busy as possible so that my mind does not dwell on what I can’t do but rather focuses on what I can do.

There are certain universal goals that all individuals with spinal cord injuries need to participate in.  Developing a do-able schedule around these universal goals is the key to developing a productive lifestyle. The doable schedule needs to be put into perspective based upon the importance of each goal.

Breaking the goals down into small, medium, and long-term goals gives an individual an understanding of the importance of each goal and stresses a timeline for each goal.

Universal Goals:

  • Exercise program

  • Education

  • Job world

  • Eating habits

  • Hobbies

  • Social life

  • Family life

Being on a specific schedule, truly allows a productive lifestyle to be developed. Also, breaking your daily schedule down by the hour helps to create a more productive lifestyle.
