7 Tips to successful goal setting


Recently, I participated in Erin Joy’s Fuel To Fire program ( Being paired with like-minded business owners who held each other accountable for nine weeks was a great experience and a true lesson on goal setting.

If you want to succeed, you need to set goals. Without goals, you lack focus and direction. Goal setting not only allows you to take control of your life's direction; it also provides a benchmark for determining whether you are succeeding. A goal is something tangible that you want. Your goals will help you determine which of your actions are moving you toward your desires and which are not. To accomplish goals, you need to act in accordance with them and not against them. The most important part of goal setting is setting realistic goals. A goal is more of a vision, whereas a dream is something you want but that you haven't yet achieved. A realistic goal is something that when you write it down, you realize it's possible. Many people set goals that are too high because they have not yet realized that it is possible to achieve them. Also, many people set goals that are too low because they don't have the knowledge or the skills to realize them. In other words, they set goals that are unrealistic. When you set goals, it’s important to be realistic. A goal should make you get up in the morning if you are serious about succeeding. Remember that you need to take steps every day to accomplish your goal. Take a few minutes every day to write down your goals. Don't wait until the weekend or a long-planned vacation to write them down. Write them down now so that you can continue setting them and achieving them. Take a few minutes every day to write them down. Many people procrastinate and don't write their goals down because they are too busy, shy, don't know how, or don't think that it is necessary to write them down. Whatever the reason, this is, try not to procrastinate. Once you write down your goals, write down the details of your goals.
