Goal Setting & Planning
"The difference between a goal and a dream is the written word."
Goal Setting & Planning empowers us to Live Our Lives in the Way We Wish
Goal setting is a process of personal planning. By setting goals on a routine basis we decide what we want to achieve, and then move step-by-step using our plans to achieve our goals. The process of setting goals and targets allows us to choose where we want to go in life. By knowing precisely what we want to achieve, we know what we have to concentrate on to do it.We also know what is merely a distraction.
Goal setting is an important technique used by top-level athletes, business-people and achievers in all fields. It gives us long-term vision and short-term motivation. It focuses our acquisition of knowledge and helps is to organize our resources.
By setting sharp, clearly defined goals, we can measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals. We can observe progress in what might previously have seemed and endless toil. By setting goals, we will also raise our self-confidence, as we recognize our ability and competence in achieving the goals that we have set. The process of achieving goals and seeing our achievements gives us confidence that we will be able to achieve higher and more difficult goals.
Goals are set on a number of different levels:
First, we decide what we want to do with our lives and what large-scale goals we want to achieve. Then we break these down into the smaller and smaller targets that we must hit so that we reach your lifetime goals. Finally, once we have our plan, we start working towards achieving it.
Starting to Set Personal Goals
It starts with our lifetime goals, and then works through a series of lower level plans culminating in a daily to-do list. By setting up this structure of plans we can break even the biggest life goal down into a number of small tasks that we need to do each day to reach the lifetime goals.
