Should Your Set Goals Be Long Rage Goals?

Jul 10, 2008
You have heard about goal setting. Now, maybe you are wondering whether to set long term goals or go for more short term goals. Often we will hear various views from the top life coaches. Either set big goals or set smaller goals. In this article, we will take a peek at should you set goals for the long range.

In this article, you will discover:
* The Types Of Goals
There are health goals, wealth goals, and many other types of goals. In this article, the types of goal setting we want to consider is that of the length of time. That being the long term goals, mid and short term goals that we may set.

* Long Term Goals
Long range goals are simply amazing. Long range goals seem like a voyage, instead of getting a cup of coffee. The type of goals you will find when setting long term goals, is that of goals that stretch a lifetime, or at least a decade or two.

These long term goals must include what you want to accomplish over a lifetime, in a career, in a business etc. Long term goals are in the domain of achievement of a vision. So a vision is necessary. This is the type of goal that you may have said as a child - when I grow up, I am going to be.

* Mid Term Goals
Mid range goals are goals which take from 1 year to 5 years. These types of goals are generally mile stones. These goals that you may set could include buying a home or getting married. It is goals which is generally a good place to start, when goal setting.

* Short Term Goals
Short term goals are those goals you set for the month, quarter or year. These goals are easily within grasp, though sometimes they may seem a way off.

* Bringing The Picture Together
Now, you want to bring the picture together. With a vision, things become possible. And thoughts are things. Your goals should all go together, in a nice and coherent manor. The long term life goal should help you have an idea of what you need for the mid term to achieve.

The mid range goals then become a factor to help you find your short term goals. As you set off on your journey, you will find that sometimes things don't happen in time. They may take longer. All I can say to this is from my experience. It appears as though, life, the universe, God or higher power gives you these tests to help you grow.

Many people give up; however, the winners are those that keep on. Keep your vision alive, at least in your mind. And like a seed into a tree, and a vision in your dream, will manifest and be.
