Do you have Goals?
If Not. Why?
Goals are important in the sense that they give you direction in life.
It is better to have a simple, or not so important goal, than having no goals at all.
Having goals is like having a map. You know where you are heading, and this gives you zest, motivation, more energy and a reason to get up in the morning. You become more alive.
Do you have goals? and I don’t mean wishes.
A real goal is not a wish. It is something, into which you will put all your efforts and energy, so you can achieve it. A goal does not have to be something big. Not everyone wants to achieve big goals, on a major scale because people are satisfied with simple goals, and that’s okay. They want a comfortable, happy and healthy life, and this is possible and within reach. Setting a goal does not necessarily mean striving for something colossus as simple goals are no less important than big ones.
Only a certain percentage of the population is interested in major goals and is willing to do everything to achieve them.
You can however, set yourself up for failure by setting general and unrealistic goals such as
“I want to be the best at….”
This goal is vague with no sense of direction.
Common Types of Goal
I want to;
- Increase something
- Make something
- Improve Something
- Reduce Something
- Save Something
- Develop Someone (Yourself!)
SMART goals set you up for success by making it
What will be accomplished?
What data will measure the goal? How much? How well?
Is the goal doable? Do you have the necessary skills and resources?
How does the goal align with broader goals? Why is the result important?
What is the time frame for accomplishing the goal?
The SMART method helps push you further, gives you a sense of direction, and helps you organize and reach your goals.
Be that better you
