Goal Setting Clarity, How To Set Clear Achievable Goals

Tips For Setting Clear Goals By Barbora Knobova

How Do You Plan Goals?

When you are setting goals, you need to pay special attention to planning them. The planning phase of goal setting is easy for some people and more difficult for others. If you don’t plan well, you may not even have a goal to reach for.

There is no set way you should go about planning clear goals, but there are ways to make the planning phase easier and more effective. The following suggestions will help you set clear goals you can achieve:

1. What do you want? No matter how big or small your goal is, you need to know what you want to achieve. If financial success is your goal, what amount of money is enough? If you plan on losing weight, how much? You need to clearly picture your goal and what success would look like.

• Don’t rush this process. It is better to spend some time thinking about what you really want. There will be a lot of ideas in your head to go through but you have to make sure you set the right goals and take action to reach them.

2. Set specific goals. Your goals should have a lot of details and be very specific. You don’t want to say you want to be a better athlete. You should specify which sport you want to succeed at and what form that success is going to come in. An example is doing very well at cheerleading tryouts so you can be the captain of the team eventually. The more specific your goal is the easier it will be to set up a plan to reach it.

3. Put your goals in writing. You should write your goals and all your thoughts down either in a notebook or on a computer. Whatever system helps you record your goal and monitor your progress along the way and works for you is great. The only way to set clear goals is to see them in writing and visualize them.

4. Set up steps to reach your goals. If your goal is a big one, you will want to set up mini goals along the way to aim for. The more you break down a big goal, the easier it will be to work toward it. You will feel a sense of accomplishment with each success, which will keep you motivated.

5. Do what works. When you identify a system that helps you set clear goals, use it for all your goals and you will see great success.

• You can set personal goals like enjoying the company of your family more by coming up with specifics on how you can enjoy time with them and what sorts of things you can do together. You can record all these information and see how you are progressing.

Do It Now!

Often, people are afraid to set clear goals because they really fear success. It may sound crazy, but that is the truth. Sitting back and doing nothing is the safe and easy way to go through life but you will miss out on successes and rewarding experiences. When you are ready to set a clear goal, you have to be ready to act on the goal as well. Start now! Don’t wait because the sooner you start, the sooner you will succeed.
