March 24: Setting Your Long Term Goals

Our second Your Legacy, Your Land webinar was held on March 24, 2016.  Want to watch the recording? 


Your Legacy, Your Land-March from American Forest Foundation on Vimeo.


This webinar covered goal setting, including why goal setting is importants, what is the difference between goals, objectives, tasks as well as some examples including those from the participants. 

There were three worksheets for this webinar: 

  • The Heirloom Scale: Where are you on the Heirloom Scale?  What about your co-owner(s)?  Take some time to complete the scale and then share it with your co-owners.
  • Individual Values and Goals: Have you thought about what your long term goals are for your land?  This assignment will help you document these thoughts.  Then share with your co-owner(s) and ask them to complete it individually. 
  • Shared Values and Goals: Once you and all your co-owners have completed the first two worksheets, then sit down and discuss your individual results.  You might not all agree on everything but see if you can work together to develop your shared values and goals for the long-time future of your land. 
  • These assignment are available online with the links above, where you can complete the worksheets and get your results emailed to you.  You can also easily share these links with your co-owner(s).  Word documents of the three assignments are available to download as well.  All of these assignments have been adapted by from the Ties to the Land program at Oregon State University.

Also available are the slides from the presentation (see below).
