goal setting

Goal setting is a process whereby you decide what you want to achieve and set up a plan to do it. Some people say that goal setting is just a matter of sitting down and deciding what to do with their lives but we beg to differ. There is more to goal setting than meets the eye.

If you fully intend to achieve your goals, you should perceive goal setting as an extremely powerful process of personal planning. Goal setting should not be taken lightly because your journey to success depends completely on the goal setting process. Your personal goals and achievements should be based on what you want out of your life, your interest, your capabilities, and the time and money you are willing to invest into achieving your goals.

Goat setting techniques are relied upon heavily by some of the best athletes and sportsmen in the world. Not only that, we can go as far as to say that anyone who is successful in their life depends quite heavily on the goal setting process. It gives you the kind of vision that you won’t otherwise have – the long-term vision. It helps you plan on how you want to find information, gather and collect them and use them. It helps you organize your time and resources effectively.

The very first step of goal setting is to, first, determine what you want at the end of the journey. That is your ultimate destination. Ask yourself…in this lifetime, what do you want to achieve? Really want to achieve? This desire will help you outline your goals in life and lend a helping hand in the goal setting process. Goal setting should touch on areas regarding artistic, attitude (personality), career, education, family, financial (most popular), physical, pleasure, health…etc.

Suffice to say here that when you’re writing down your goals, think about no one else except for yourself. What do you feel deep inside your heart? What are your dreams? Your secrets…what are they? Forget about your parents, sisters, brothers, relatives, friends and associates. They should have nothing to do with your personal goals. Therefore, they should not influence your decision even in the smallest way.

Once you’ve decided on your goals, it’s time to sit down to plan how to get there. This process is just as important as the initial goal setting process. It’s time to prioritize all your goals, if you have more than one. You should set out to achieve your goal over a certain period of time….like 25 years; it all depends on you when you want to achieve your goals. Then within the 25 years, set smaller goals.

For instance, if you’re trying to have financial freedom, the goal should be 25 years. But in 5 years time, you could set out to get a new job or get a managerial post in the same company or another company. In 10 years time, you want to get your own apartment and start your own business. In 15 years time, you plan to open a new outlet or a branch, etc. In 20 years time, you set out to have at least $500,000 in your bank account with a fixed deposit. And in 25 years time, you plan to retire with at least a couple of millions in savings!

Of course, this is a hypothetical goal and while we think it’s achievable, it doesn’t have to your goal. Your goal is yours and yours alone to make.
