Goal Settings to achieve success in life


               Setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. Setting goals gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation

                First you create your "big picture" of what you want to do with your life (or over, say, the next 10 years), and identify the large-scale goals that you want to achieve. Then, you break these down into the smaller and smaller targets that you must hit to reach your lifetime goals. Finally, once you have your plan, you start working on it to achieve these goals.

Following are the areas were you can set goals

  • Career – What level do you want to reach in your career, or what do you want to achieve?
  • Financial – How much do you want to earn, by what stage? How is this related to your career goals? 
  • Education – Is there any knowledge you want to acquire in particular? What information and skills will you need to have in order to achieve other goals? 
  • Family – Do you want to be a parent? If so, how are you going to be a good parent? How do you want to be seen by a partner or by members of your extended family? 
  • Artistic – Do you want to achieve any artistic goals? 
  • Attitude – Is any part of your mindset holding you back? Is there any part of the way that you behave that upsets you? (If so, set a goal to improve your behavior or find a solution to the problem.) 
  • Physical – Are there any athletic goals that you want to achieve, or do you want good health deep into old age? What steps are you going to take to achieve this? 
  • Pleasure – How do you want to enjoy yourself? (You should ensure that some of your life is for you!) 
  • Public Service – Do you want to make the world a better place? If so, how?
           Once you have set your lifetime goals, set a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if you are to reach your lifetime plan.  Then create a one-year plan, six-month plan, and a one-month plan of progressively smaller goals that you should reach to achieve your lifetime goals. Each of these should be based on the previous plan.
Then create a daily To-Do List of things that you should do today to work towards your lifetime goals

Goals should be SMART  

· S – Specific (or Significant).
· M – Measurable (or Meaningful).
· A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented).
· R – Relevant (or Rewarding).
· T – Time-bound (or Trackable).
