Goal Setting

The most powerful means for achievement and accomplishment is setting goals. These provide a sense of direction to keep us focused on the most important activities. Since success can be defined as the progressive realization of worthwhile, predetermined personal goals the process is designed to move us from wish or hope to fulfillment. Goals create a magnetic attraction that draws us toward their achievement. Writing the goals forces you to clarify and crystallize your thinking. In other words, we act on the goal and the goal acts on us. Goals save time, help measure progress, produce motivation, stimulate visualization and form a basis for action. Studies show that the difference between those who write their goals and those who just think them is comparable to night and day but most of the population, at best, set day to day goals because goal setting is a skill and was not taught in school. Learning how to write goals that are specific, measureable, attainable, realistic and tangible will make a tremendous difference in every aspect of your life.
