Humans are born to create and achieve. Look at everywhere something is going on every time. It’s in our
nature to dream and achieve. Our whole world is outcome of the dreams someone, somewhere saw.
They turn those dreams into reality with clear goals in their mind.
Remember without Goals you can never achieve what you ever want to achieve. So why focus on not
achieving, let’s start on how to achieve ?
Goals are a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future, and for motivating yourself to turn your
vision of this future into reality. It seems modern society is always encouraging us to think about the next
milestone. But many people feel as if they’re adrift in the world. They work hard, but they don’t seem to
get anywhere worthwhile .A key reason that they feel this way is that they haven’t spent enough time
thinking about what they want from life, and haven’t set themselves formal goals.
What is Goal Setting?
Experts define goal setting as the act of selecting a target or objective you wish to achieve. Effective goal
setting requires consideration of the system that surrounds you. Too often, we set the right goals inside
the wrong system. If you’re fighting your system each day to make progress, then it’s going to be really
hard to make consistent progress.
An example of system : Our professional and personal lives are shaped by the options
that surround us.
If you sleep with your phone next to your bed, then checking social media and email as soon as you
wake up is likely to be the default decision.
If you keep a dumbbell next to your desk at work, then pumping out some quick curls is more likely to be
the default decision.
So after setting goals it’s important to Align Your Environment With Your Goals.
Why Set Goals?
Goals are useful for setting the direction. Systems are great for actually making progress. In fact, the
primary benefit of having a goal is that it tells you what sort of system you need to put in place. Top-level athletes, successful businesspeople and achievers in all fields all set goals. Setting goals gives you long- term vision and short-term motivation. It focuses your acquisition of knowledge, and helps you to organize your time and your resources so that you can make the most of your life. By setting sharp, clearly defined goals, you can measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals, and you’ll see forward progress in what might previously have seemed a long pointless grind. You will also raise your self-confidence , as you recognize your own ability and competence in achieving the goals that you’ve
What type of goal you want to achieve?
Spend some time brainstorming these things, and then select one or more goals in each category that
best reflect what you want to do. Then create a one-year plan, six-month plan, and a one-month plan of
progressively smaller goals that you should reach.
Career – What level do you want to reach in your career, or what do you want to achieve?
Financial – How much do you want to earn, by what stage? How is this related to your career goals?
Education – Is there any knowledge you want to acquire in particular? What information and skills will
you need to have in order to achieve other goals?
Family – Do you want to be a parent? If so, how are you going to be a good parent? How do you want to
be seen by a partner or by members of your extended family?
Artistic – Do you want to achieve any artistic goals?
Attitude – Is any part of your mindset holding you back? Is there any part of the way that you behave
that upsets you? (If so, set a goal to improve your behavior or find a solution to the problem.)
Physical – Are there any athletic goals that you want to achieve, or do you want good health deep into
old age? What steps are you going to take to achieve this?
Pleasure – How do you want to enjoy yourself? (You should ensure that some of your life is for you!)
Public Service – Do you want to make the world a better place? If so how?
How to achieve?
Once you’ve decided on your first set of goals, keep the process going by reviewing and updating your
To-Do List on a daily basis.
One of the fastest ways to make progress on your goals is to simply press pause on less important
things and focus on one goal at a time. Sometimes you just need to reorganize your priorities a little bit
and suddenly progress comes much more quickly because you are now fully committed to a goal that
was only getting moderate attention previously.
What we really need is not bigger goals, but better focus. You need to choose one thing and ruthlessly
eliminate everything else.
Be precise – Set precise goals, putting in dates, times and amounts so that you can measure
achievement. If you do this, you’ll know exactly when you have achieved the goal, and can take complete
satisfaction from having achieved it.
Set priorities – When you have several goals, give each a priority. This helps you to avoid feeling
overwhelmed by having too many goals, and helps to direct your attention to the most important ones.
Write goals down – This crystallizes them and gives them more force.
Keep operational goals small – Keep the low-level goals that you’re working towards small and
achievable. If a goal is too large, then it can seem that you are not making progress towards it. Keeping
goals small and incremental gives more opportunities for reward.
Set realistic goals – It’s important to set goals that you can achieve. All sorts of people (for example,
employers, parents, media, or society) can set unrealistic goals for you. They will often do this in
ignorance of your own desires and ambitions.
People who set goals are more successful.
When you set a goal, it has to mean something, and there has to be a value to achieving it. If the
outcome is of little to no importance to you, then the chances of your putting in the work are next to none.
