The Dummies Guide To Goal Setting

Aug 4, 2008
From buying your dream home, to buying a private jet, right up to becoming an astronaut, goal setting makes it possible. No one has ever achieved any notable achievement before first doing some kind of goal setting method. In this article, we will take a look at the most simplest goal setting method that works, and can take you forward to your goals!

You first will need these items. Make sure you get them before continuing. It may be an idea to bookmark this, Digg this, blog this or even print it up for later use. Here are the items you will need to do goal setting:
* A pen
* Paper
* You
* Your mind and a goal

We will look at these in a kind of reverse order, as that is how it goes with goal setting, and goal achievement. You need to first have an idea, before you can write it down. Let us get started.

* Step 1 - Your Goal
To begin goal setting, you will need to do some thinking. What is a goal that you would like to achieve? What do you really want? Think about it, what is one desire you would really like to achieve? Preferably this goal is something you have never achieved before.

* Step 2 - You!
Remember that it is you who is the vehicle. A goal can not be achieved by you, without you! If you want a house, someone maybe able to build it for you, but it is through you giving your go-ahead.

Consider what you want, and what kind of things will be required for its achievement. Buying a dream home can be as simple as phoning a real estate agent or even going to visit to see property.

If your goal is a career goal, then you may have to get more education. All of these thoughts will need research. You may need to find out what kind of courses you need to embark on. You will also need to consider if you need any existing qualifications and skills before getting onto that course of education - if your goal needs some education.

* Step 3 - The Fun Begins
Now with your pen and paper, you need to write down your goal. Then you need to consider what you need to do, to get there. Often goals will have a lot of question marks, but as you go through step 4, you will achieve success, and find more answers.

* Step 4 - The Journey To Achievement
A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step! Without action goals can't be achieved. So take action. Step 1 to 3 may have taken you 5 minutes, it may have taken a month, but step 4 is the journey, and can take long. Step into persistence, and you will succeed.

* Step 5 - The Seed Of Achievement
Step 4 is laying the seeds. Step 5 is the harvest. Your goal has been attained! Congratulations. Now it is time to look for bigger and better things to set goals on. Remember to get here requires time. And remember sooner you act, and persist, the quicker you will get here.
