The Importance Of Setting Goals
Posted on September 19, 2013
Dreams. We all have them.
And I am not talking about the dreams that we have at night while sleeping. I mean, the dreams of our future – where we will be in 6 months, 1 year, 5 years, and so on.
The dreams of success.
Of starting a business.
Of getting married.
Of having children.
Of making $250,000 a year.
What are your dreams?
And, more importantly, how will you reach them?
Reaching those dreams is a personal success, but in order to attain that success, you need to be able to measure that success.
This is where setting goals comes into play. Think of goals as drawing a map. You know where you and are you know where you want to be. At the same time, realize that traveling across country cannot happen overnight. You need to plan you journey and set goals of how far you are going to get each day to reach your destination.
The same course of action is needed for reaching your dreams.
Success in reaching your dreams does not happen overnight.
Set attainable goals for the path to help you reach your dream.
You will feel little bits of success for each goal you set, continually building until you reach your dream.
I challenge you to take 30 minutes and write out 25 goals you have. Write it out. Keep it in a place of constant reminder. And, as you reach them, mark them complete, but build new ones.
Justin Wise recently posted an article with 46 of his goals. Take a look for some inspiration.
I am setting a goal to take 30 minutes and write out personal goals for myself, and I will post those here for you to see.
Will you take the challenge?
