Goal Setting 101

Home » Tips » Goal Setting 101

Setting goals will enable you to eliminate the distractions in your life and help you to focus on the really important things.  By knowing exactly what you want, you’re able to concentrate on specific areas with more accountability and focus. Goals allow you to get more things done so you can achieve more. Who doesn’t want to achieve more?

I like to take one large goal and break it into smaller, more attainable “mini-goals”.  This will give you the direction you need if you get off track.  Goals create steps. The old saying goes, “How do we eat an elephant?” Answer: One bite at a time. No matter what task we have to tackle, we often can’t do it all at once. We can, however take small steps toward completing the task.

I always, always, always write down my goals! Set small, measurable, and attainable goals. Focus on getting the result that you want. Why did you set this goal? Why is it important to you? Make a commitment to yourself, and then take action with your end-result in mind. Use your time wisely and work hard. Don’t waste your valuable time and energy with filler.

Tell everyone you know about your goal. You have probably heard this a hundred times, but it really works. This will create accountability, and the more accountability, the more likely you are to succeed! But, be careful with ones who won’t support you, don’t share with them.

One more thing… “TODAY, not tomorrow” is critical.  Don’t put anything off until tomorrow, it will never get done. Besides, if it were really important to you, then why would you wait? Do it TODAY!
