Example Goals

In the book there are six priorities outlined that a Christian should have.  Just because one priority is higher than another does not mean that you can only have goals in areas that are high priority.  In reality, you should probably have goals in all areas of your life.  Priorities come into play when you have to make difficult decisions on whether to set aside time for one priority or another.  In a perfect world you can achieve all of your Biblical, personal, family, and occupational goals.  Here are some examples of each type of goal.
