A Tip on Goal Setting: Goals that Change

A Tip on Goal Setting: Goals that Change

It makes sense to say that your set goals should be those that will make a change in your life. Why set a goal if it’s not going to have an effect on your life, right? So, if you are just starting out with goal setting, choose a goal that will change something in you or your life in general. It can be a small or big change, either way it did something and that’s what you want. Of course, it has to be positive.

I’m not saying setting goals should only be on that level. You can choose targets that don’t change but rather keep something going at the same rate such as maintaining a certain weight. Setting a goal like this is effective as a follow up goal to a newly achieved one.
Which means that you start with a goal that gives change then follow it up with a goal that maintains.

A Tip on Goal Setting: Goals

The main thing that you want to do when you want to start achieving goals is to set a goal. That is, you need to first identify what you want to aim for. Depending on your preferences it can be a personal goal, a life goal, or a career goal.

What is a personal goal? Basically it’s one that you want personally and it’s largely selfish. Buying your own car would be an example. A life goal on the other hand is one that you’ve always dreamed of having or having done in the course of your life. As for career goals, these are goals that are mainly career based. That is, it can be learning a new skill that will help in boosting up your career or getting to a certain position in your profession of choice.

Now, whichever type of goal it is, what you want to do when you set goals is to make it specific. Make sure all the tiny little details are there so that achieving it will be easier. A specific goal is clear and easier to plan out for compared to a broad one.

Good luck setting goals! 😉

A Tip on Goal Setting: Problems

When you are actively achieving goals and you encounter numerous problems along the way, don’t lose hope right away. Having problems doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going the wrong way. It just means that your set goals are particularly difficult to complete. Another reason could be that you need to review your master plan to see if you made a mistake somewhere or that something needs to be changed so that these problems can be prevented from happening again.

A Tip on Goal Setting

When do you do this? As often as you can. But one good time to do it is at the start of your day. Before you head out to work say your goal or life goals out loud. For example, “I will travel the world in two years!” Say it with conviction like it was the first time you discovered that this is what you wanted to do. Also, notice that there’s a time element to what you say, the reason for this is so that you will also be reminded of when you want it to happen. Just saying your goal without any specific time will leave it hanging and you might not give enough effort to pursue it.
