Set your GOALs, this will help you in life. But why should I set it? How does it help? To get these answers, let us get started on goal setting.
Goal setting will help you focus on what you want to achieve, and what should be done to get there.
Let’s see how to set a GOAL- goal setting
First, we have to get committed to the target that we want to achieve. Now, how can we do that? By writing down our goals on paper. With that target, I will also suggest writing down approx time duration to complete that target (e.g within 2 months or 6 months; or by 21 July). At initially start with only one or two goals. Now, place the paper where you have written your goals, on a place where you can easily revisit or review it every day or at least 3 times a week.
Let’s see how does goal setting work
Now, you know, what you want to achieve and already shown your commitment toward it by writing it down on paper, and revisiting your goals every day. My friend, here you are done with the most important task of setting a GOAL. Now you are less likely to do unnecessary things that truly waste your time. You will become more aware of where you are spending your time and energy. Possibly you will become so aware of your time spending factor that you will manage your spare time on tasks to achieve your goals only. No more time-wasting will happen. After this activity, you will come to know the fact that before goal-setting, a lot of your daytime used to gone unutilized.
You will see a lot of opportunities coming your way to achieving your target since you have set your frequency (rather say your mind is set on that frequency) to achieve what you want. It is not that opportunities started pouring in now only after setting goals, it was there earlier too, but you were not programmed to see those, since you were so busy doing unnecessary things that you simply could not see the opportunities. Now, with goal setting your mind is very much focused on what you want, so you can clearly differentiate between opportunities coming your way and unnecessary things.
See now you are much focused on your goals, so you will do all possible efforts to achieve those. In this case, your possibility to reach your target becomes very very high. It will become 99 % sure of you to achieve your goals that too within your set time limit. You will defiantly meet your desire by setting your Goals.
