Goal Setting For Success



How NOT to Set Goals (Why S.M.A.R.T. goals are lame)





The process of personal goal setting in itself is powerful enough that if you're going through with the process you might think that your life's meaning or purpose had been found. But it is not. The euphoria is only a result of your self finally realizing that you're on the right track. For some, the process itself is motivating. 

Say, for example, you have decided to prioritize your personal growth and you have set a goal for this. What you will need is a procedure in which you can monitor each step of the goal so as to make the necessary revisions. And since goal setting is never done to isolate yourself from the rest, make it a habit to surround yourself with people that share your vision. 

You can get a piece of paper and write them all down, then keep the paper where it can be easily found. You can post at the door, your headboard, the wall, or even at the door of the fridge. That would make the written financial goals easily read, thus, they would serve as constant reminder of the financial aspects you aim to achieve in the short or long run. 

You know how teenagers need guidance and proper advice, especially in their age when their personalities of manhood and womanhood are being developed and framed. You can always help your teenage kids dream better about their future. They have so much to learn, and as a parent or a guardian, it is your responsibility to make sure their dreams are on the right path and are achievable and reasonable. 

Be clear on what you want to be. There s nothing more annoying than a person trying to tell you something, yet you can t understand what he's talking about. The same goes for your inner self. Being indecisive is frustrating and feeding this habit will only be futile to your quest of searching for career goal answers. 

When you have your goals already set, or even if you are still in the arduous and continuous process of achieving these goals, knowing your priorities and adhering to attaining them would likely help you somehow get orderly amid the long and winding goal-achieving process. Set performance goals instead of outcome goals.
