Not everyone sets goals. However, setting meaningful goals is critical if you want to reach them in a timely way.
No matter what stage of life you are in, you can benefit by setting goals for yourself. The goal itself needs to motivate you to begin to take action rather than avoid getting started.
The following tips will help you keep on track as you make progress.
Your goals need to:
Be inspirational or important to you and in harmony with your needs and values so that you can commit to them.
Look at where you "want" to be or what you want to achieve. Have a desired outcome with a "want" mindset which focuses on possibilities rather than a "should" mindset. "Should" will only slow you down.
Be attainable, interesting, and challenging so you will want to commit to them.
Be specific with realistic dates, numbers, or time frames.
Be measurable to give you feedback at set times. This helps you measure your progress.
