Goal setting is an important method of:
•Deciding what you want to achieve in your life.
•Separating what’s important from what’s irrelevant, or a distraction.
•Building your self-confidence, based on successful achievement of goals.
Set your lifetime goals first. Then, set a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if you are to reach your lifetime plan. Keep the process going by regularly reviewing and updating your goals. And remember to take time to enjoy the satisfaction of achieving your goals when you do so.
If you don’t already set goals, do so, starting now. As you make this technique part of your life, you’ll find your career accelerating, and you’ll wonder how you survived without it.
I encourage you to start small. Don’t make it too complicated. Don’t try to do everything at once.
