When we embark on a new career or long engagement that is going to require dedication, focus, and discipline, we are asked about our short term, long term, five year, or ten year goals and beyond.
It forces us to take the time to sit down, scratch our brains, and think about where we want to go and how to get there.
This process can be so rewarding! Breaking our goals down into smaller steps which lead to habits can take us to the big milestones we have worked so hard towards.
When we reach the goals we set for ourselves, there is no other feeling quite like it.
So, what if we applied this concept to traveling?
We always talk about how nice it would be to take more vacations and the list of “We HAVE to go there!” seems to be getting longer than the number of places checked off.
So let’s talk about goals. Traveling goals. Short term, long term, bucket list, whatever we are going to call it, it’s time to write it down and start living!
Here are the things you will need to start planning and making your travel goals come true:
Make a list of 10-20 places or vacations you would like to visit. Separate these into categories. Are these vacations that could be short trips? Week-long trips? Domestic or international?
- How flexible is your work? The flexibility of your work and PTO is going to help determine where you are going and for how long. Remember to factor in holiday travels, potential sick days, and other reasons you might have to take off work. Including a vacation within a holiday that you have off of work, especially if you are traveling to see family, might be a good bang for your buck.
- What does your budget look like? For long term travel goals out of the country, sometimes thinking ahead, even if it is a few years in the future, will save on the stress of having to figure out the financial aspect of where to travel. Budgeting is a good way to set aside money for traveling and this helps to reach short term vs long term travel goals. These financial budgets for travel might allow more or less flexibility on where it is you travel and how long.
- How specific are the travel goals? If you are wanting to start traveling immediately, starting small might be a good first step. Gaining momentum and excitement from traveling could help you stay focused toward reaching your goals both short term and long term.
