Personal Goal Setting And Self Improvement

Apr 28, 2008
Goal setting is a very effective avenue that can help you in achieving anything in life a much faster than when you are not applying program on setting goals for your personal improvement. But, there are some common goal setting shortcomings that you have to avoid in order to effectively reach your goals as fast as you can and achieve self improvement- personal growth.
One of the most common goal setting mistakes is to set to several goals at one time. Trying to carry too much in your arms at one time and before long you could not manage it- in most cases. You might have been able to balance each thing in your arms for a little while but then, all of a sudden, things in your arms come crashing down to the ground. Likewise with goal setting. You can not have many things to be handled with simultaneously so you have to set priority- find your niche.

Personal Goal Setting
In a global scope, there are lots of situations whereby people feel overwhelmed by the goals they set. Thus, the goals that they set were never fulfilled. Precisely because, management of these calls were just difficult to handle.

I used to program at personal goal setting for myself and achieved nothing but failure. The desire to fulfill these personal goals is always there. But, I am always unsure of where, when I should start. For instance, I wanted to keep my working area clean and tidy everyday but I always find it difficult to do so especially after a day's work.

Goal Setting Tips
You have to be firm. Nobody is going to stand over your shoulder with a cattle prod, poking you to keep moving ahead. You are your own task master, you must stand what you believe beneficial to you. When you begin to procrastinate, remind yourself that you are responsible for making the most of your time and energy and power.
You have to be consistent. The only avenue anyone ever accomplishes what they set out after is through consistency and of being persistent.

Personal Growth
A group of people and industry leaders have generously shared what personal growth means to them. There are many ideas (that really work for me) in each and every one of their statements-a richness of experience in life that helps us comprehend who we are and why we are here.

Here are some of their answer:
"Personal Growth is the pursuit of positive activities, experiences, and education: The process expands your consciousness and opens you up to possibilities far beyond your currently perceived limits and boundaries."--Kathryn Arnold

"...A constant examination of what is and isn't working in your life, and an exploration of new ways of being to achieve a fulfilling life, which is composed of health, wealth, love, and personal self-expression." --Matthew Britt
