The Secret to Goal Setting

Aug 17, 2007
Goal setting is a crucial aspect of your life that needs maximum focus if you are targeting personal, professional, monetary or even spiritual growth. Life would become much complicated if you don't act prudently and enlist your goals from the highest to lower priority. An average individual has the habit of taking things for granted and lives a busy life without a focus. The schedule is so hectic that there is no time for setting up goals and a clear timetable for their achievement. However, a life without goals is just like a ship without a radar and you keep on running without making an effort to reach your target. Even before you realize, time passes by and then there is nothing left except to long for the time that has lapsed.

Learning the Secrets
When we talk of goal setting, it is not necessarily in term of money, family or professional achievements, we are talking of life's goals in a broader perspective encompassing all aspects of living. If you are honest enough then close your eyes and travel in the magnificent world of your mind. There must be a hidden desire in the depths of your mind that you have not given an opportunity to materialize all these years. For instance, a tax consultant must be a gifted composer but has never realized the need to express that to the world. The primary reason for this is lack of goal setting and ignoring the most important aspect of his/her personality. You should have the ability to enlist your desires and then tabulate those desires in form of concrete, definable and achievable goals with a time frame attached to each goal.

The secret of goal setting and their achievement lies in taking a more constructive approach and adhering to the principles of time management. That can help a great deal at the end of the day in achieving your goal. You are the sole master of every day you spend in your life and how you spend it. The secret is in making a list of your bigger goals and then breaking them up into small targets with a clear time frame such as week, month or a year. This would help you analyze whether or not you are proceeding in the right direction.

Stop dreaming at this very moment and start giving practical shape to your dreams. Any further procrastination for goal setting would only hinder the success of your goals. Provide sufficient time for goal setting to create an example for others to follow. It is error of judgment on your part if you think that you can start it from tomorrow; do it today for your own sake.
