Set DeadlinesSection 1: Lesson 3
In this lesson, we will be discussing how to set realistic deadlines for your goals.
We will be filling out a portion of step 3 in the Travel Goals Workbook, so make sure you have it handy!
The Difference Between Planning for Three Trips and Three Destinations Simultaneously
In the video above, I made the decision to combine three of my destinations into one trip since they're relatively close together.
I know that this might be a bit confusing because I told you to focus on one goal at a time.
If you can't combine any of your goals, continue to work on only one at a time.
However, if it makes financial sense to combine destinations into a longer trip, you should do it!
Earlier, I said that when you work towards more than one goal at the same time, each goal would steal resources (time spent planning and available money) from the others.
In this case, however, combining multiple destinations in one trip could easily save you tons of money, eliminating the competition.
Plus, this smart combination of trips will help you reach your goals much faster.
When to Not Combine Destinations
- Don't combine destinations if you can't devote the amount of time that you'd like to the trip.
If you can only take a week off from work, visiting three destinations that are relatively close might be too much because you run the risk of not being able to do everything you'd like.
- Don't combine destinations if it doesn't make financial sense
After you crunch the numbers, you might find that it doesn't save you any money. In fact, it could cost you extra. At that point, it might be better to just plan a separate trip for each destination.
