Not too long ago when I blogged about setting goals for the month of September, I discussed getting a job. I think a lot of us bloggies would be blown away with the opportunity to work for lululemon, and I decided to take a chance and apply with their company.
Lulu's was not a typical application. Besides, name, resume, and all the particulars, I was asked to fill in goals for time periods of my life: for one year, five years and ten years. It caught me off guard, and was a lot to think about. I gave the best answers I could, but the idea of goal-setting resonated with me.
Love the saying "Do one thing every day that scares you."
The company has even been tweeting about the importance of setting goals. This iheartquotes retweet from lululemon caught my eye:
"iheartquotes: "You've got 2 be very careful if u don't know where you're going, because you might not get there." ~ Yogi Berra via @1Luvee #iheartquotes"
(How many times can I say I could subsist on these forever? I'll keep saying it til they stop tasting so darn good!)
Later on in the day, after my lunchtime pondering and after I had re-tweeted that, Lululemon tweeted me. As a large aside, I always feel special when someone famous or a large brand or company retweets me. I'm still waiting for Bobby Flay or Bethenny Frankel. One day, one tweet at a time.
lululemon @ExerciseAndEat We have a fantastic event this Wednesday for you, Ask a Goal Coacher! We'd love to see you there http://bit.ly/9crov3
So what are my goals? What will I learn from lululemon's "Ask a Goal Coacher" event? Will it change any goals I currently have?
