When Looking At Your Goals

Determining Goals.

First, when looking at goals, in is essential to determine the goal(s) that are fundamental to you and your plan.

So, start by making a list of everything you’ve ever wanted or dreamed of.  Remember to make a note of everything, whatever it is.

At this time, don’t even think about how you’ll get it, or how you will pay for it etc.

In this case, this list of desires will broaden your horizons, so you must not work out you will satisfy them.

Evidently there is a reason why I say this now: do not plan how you will construct your time and limit your conviction in your capacity to attain them.  There is currently too far in the distance, and you will write yourself off because your planning will be confined to what you know about yourself today.


Why are the goals listed?

Consequently, you will notice if they are truly essential to you, you will begin to recognise opportunities that you previously overlooked.

Soon your subconscious begins to draw them in, and you will begin to build the skills necessary to take you there.

So, make a list of anything that comes to mind and in no order.  Later it will be your values that will assist you in organising and prioritising them.


Things to note when looking at your goals.

It is important to note, that you will not always reach a goal exactly as you planned.   Often the path of creative preparation and action takes you in unexpected directions, greater and more successful than those in your plan.

What I can tell you is that your current level of thinking, which has determined who you are, will change as you mature.

In addition to detailing all your desires, you will need specific concrete needs to give them necessary enchantments to reach certain goals.

For instance – if you need to educate more in any subject to increase your income but have insufficient time, set a goal to take a speed-reading course or a memory and concentration course so you can do more in less time.

Without a doubt, it’s not how many hours you put in, but what you do with those hours that counts.


Looking at your goals can be challenging.

To start, make a list of all your immaterial aspirations.  There will be a character quality that you will wish to develop in order to become what you aspire.

Next, list goals such as developing your understanding and empathy with others if you are intolerant, irritated, or short with people.

Although you may find it challenging to condense these objectives to writing, the crucial thing to remember is that this list does not have to be shown to anybody else.  Furthermore, not even your friends, bosses, parents, or spouse needs to see them.

Always be fully honest with yourself about who you are.   As I have said, don’t let goals, especially abstract goals, become distorted because you believe you can display them or others have seen them.   Your life is at stake.   They are your objectives.   Be truthful.

When we look to others for guidance in what we want to become, accomplish, or have, we abandon one of our most valuable abilities: the power to plan, create, and propose for oneself.


Categories when looking at your goals.

Finally when you have finished your list, categorise it into short, medium, and long-term objectives.

Short should be between 1 day and 3 months.

Medium term should be up to 12 months.

Long term should be 1 to 3 years.

Any goals you set following this plan will serve as your life’s plans and purpose.


The main thing to remember here is to love goal setting, make it a habit, and watch yourself grow in confidence and enjoyment.

While this must be tough, it must also be realistic.

What is short term for one individual could be long term for another.

For example, two people share the same objective of weighing 175 pounds.  If one of them weighs 230 pounds, he or she can distribute the weight over a period of 20 months. On the other hand, another person may simply need to lose 12 pounds over the course of three months.

To reduce weight in three months is absolutely unrealistic and self-defeating.   For the second, losing 20 pounds in 20 months is entirely uncomplicated, resulting in procrastination and complacency.

He or she will realise that losing a few ounces is all that is required in the first few months and may not even begin!

Goals that aren’t ambitious aren’t goals at all.
