Reminders for Goal Setting

Reminders for Goal Setting

Whenever New Year is just around the corner, most people start asking each other about their resolutions. It seems like everyone expects themselves and everyone else around them to do something for a change. Perhaps because it’s a new year and it’s a great time to turn over a new leaf or to start something new. Now, that time of the year is still quite a long way to go but if you don’t have one yet, a resolution that you’d like to set, then here are a few things to remember about setting goals:

1. Your goal must be what you want. This means that no one else asked you to do this but you yourself. Hence, it must be a personal goal.
2. Your goal must be realistic and specific. Define your goal and narrow it down to the minute details. Also, it must be something that can actually be accomplished. Don’t set goals that can only be achieved in another plane.

That’s all for now. See you next time for more reminders about goal setting.

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! 😉
