goal setting definition
Goal setting is all about having a clear plan and a future vision of where you want to be in the future. In order to set goals or have a plan you must first have some kind of a dream or something that you really want.
This dream can be anything like wanting to have a successful relationship, wanting to buy a big house or a car or even wanting to be the president of the united states.
The First step to goal setting
The first thing you need to do in order to set goals correctly is to decide what you really want.
What is the thing that will change your life if you got it? what do you really need? what is the thing that can make you happy if you achieved it?
visualization can help you much in knowing what you want. Just sit in any place where you wont get disturbed and dream about your future!
After visualizing your dream the goals that you are going to set should have the purpose of serving the big dream.
For example suppose that you decided to be an ambassador , most likely your goal list will contain items such as studying political science, learning more than two languages and having superior communication skills.
each goal on its own won't make you become an ambassador but together they serve the plan and so help you to get closer to your dream. upon finding out what you want start setting your goals.
Goal setting rules and guidelines
There are some important rules for goal setting which are:
one final tip which can help you in reaching your goals is having self discipline. Self discipline in brief is the ability to delay short term pleasure in order to reach your long term goals.
Goal setting and time management
Usually when goal setting is mentioned another topic must be mentioned along with it which is time management. Learning time management will make you more capable of using your time efficiently and this will lead to reaching your goals faster.
Goal Setting and Lack of Resources
Some people mistakenly think that they should set goals that can be achieved within the limits of the current resources they have.
By doing so those people put constrains on their dreams then end up with a humble list of goals. This is totally wrong, you should visualize your dream first then set goals that can help you fulfill it with disregard to the resources you have.
Once you do so you will be amazed when you find that your subconscious mind is sending you new ideas that you have never thought about before that can help you to reach these goals. (read this article to know how it works)
