When we think about goal setting, we often think about work, family, structure, health and fitness. These are all core parts of our life so it’s a great idea to have some ideas about how to improve these areas. But…sometimes it’s good to think outside of the box.

Your goals are yours and yours only and could be things that you have always fancied doing but never got around to…life gets darn busy…or thought they were for other people, not for little old you! Maybe you just want to have more fun, or perhaps you need to work on some unhealthy relationship habits. Here are three random ideas to get you started.

Check Out Some Live Music

They say that music can have a profound effect on people, and it turns out to be true. Music interacts with lots of different parts of the brain, and it even engages language centers. While you can easily go online or throw on a record of some kind, there’s nothing like going to see the musicians playing in person.

There’s something really powerful about the way that you can immerse yourself in a live music venue when there’s a great band on stage telling a story that everyone can understand or relate to.

Music itself is a form of communication that relies on the ability of the players’ knowledge to supply appropriate responses. It’s said to be a temporal art form because of the fact that it can be experienced or perceived during the passage of time.

While finding the time to go out might take some planning, it can be extremely enriching to enjoy music in a live setting. Try looking in the local paper, or go online to find some venues in your area. You’ll probably really enjoy it.

Reevaluate Your Boundaries

It’s a good thing to be in a good position to help others, but it can a be a really bad thing if you don’t have the proper sorts of boundaries in your relationships where people take advantage of you. Take an honest look at the people you have in your life. If you’ve gotten into a lot of difficult situations because of a difficulty saying no, then it’s probably time to start learning how to do that.

It’s not a bad thing to need to hold some space for yourself. That’s healthy space that you need so that your life isn’t negatively affected by someone who is simply unaware of what sorts of things you might need. It might not make everyone happy, but people will know that you value your time as much as they feel you should value theirs.

Take a Trip to a New Location

When was the last time you went on a real trip to somewhere you’ve never been before? Wise people have always believed that travel is a major part of learning about the world, and ultimately about other’s cultures because what better way to know a culture than by actually going to the places where people from other cultures live and spending time with them?

Pick an interesting destination that makes you feel excited and just make a goal to go there. The chances are that you’ll probably have a better time than you expect. Just be sure to get out and away from some of the tourist spots. Ask people about where the real culture can be found.

That way you can try more exciting foods and get to see many of the cool local spots. Of course, it’s always good to know about the level of safety you can expect. Read reports and experiences to get a good idea of the types of things that are common to the area.

Any of those ideas resonate with you. I would love to travel more but I have so many responsibilities. Maybe I should start making some mini goals towards that trip that I’ve always wanted and one day it might actually happen! Can you think of your own three wildcard goals? They can be as crazy as you like…remember you don’t need to tell anyone!
