To accomplish our goals, we need to know how to set them.
Goal setting is a process that starts with careful consideration of what want to achieve, and ends with a lot of hard work to actually do it.
In between there are some very well defined steps that transcend the specifics of each goal. Knowing these steps will allow us to formulate goals that we can accomplish.
So, here are the five golden rules of goal setting:
1. Set Specific and Clearly Define Goals
Make sure your goals are concrete, concise and attainable. You should clearly define your goals from the very start to articulate exactly what you want to achieve.
For example, instead of saying to lose weight, your goal should be to lose 5kg in 3 months.
2. Set SMART Goals
SMART stands for, Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-Bound.
An example, of a SMART goal would be to start eating healthy to lose 5kg in 3 months.
3. Set Goals In Writing
The physical act of writing down a goal makes it real and tangible. So, we should write our goals down
.The act of writing our ideas down, or say, keying them into our laptop, will force us to think in concrete terms. It will also spark additional ideas.
4. Make An Action Plan
By writing out the individual steps, and then crossing each one off once completed, help you see the progress towards your ultimate goal.
However, you don’t need a complete plan in place to rise to the challenge and embrace its possibilities. Achieve greater success by continually.
5. Stick With It!
Remember, goal setting is an ongoing activity not just a means to an end. T
Build in reminders to keep yourself on track, and make regular time-slots available to review our goals. Make sure the relevance, value, and necessity remain high.
So, What Next?
Now, that you know the rule to set a goal, the obvious next step should be to set goals.
Keep it simple and work your way to reach the ultimate destination. Don’t lose hope and wish you nothing but the best all the way!
