Setting goals

“Goals provide a sense of direction and purpose”
Setting goals is one thing we all do consciously or not consciously, to be on the conscious part this time. Goal Setting involves establishing specific, measurable and time-targeted objectives. Setting goals is a process that allows people to specify then work towards their own objectives - most commonly with financial or career-based goals, how ever most effective goals should be tangible, specific, realistic and have a time targeted for completion. There must be realistic plans to achieve the intended goal.

Take time to read this before you try and write down a whole lot of things..
SMART = GOALS not just goals but with a 100% result…

- S = Specific: A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six "W" questions:

*Who: Who is involved? *What: What do I want to accomplish? *Where: Identify a location. *When: Establish a time frame. *Which: Identify requirements and constraints. *Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
EXAMPLE: A general goal would be, "I like to paint my room." But a specific goal would say, "I will paint my room pink."
- M = Measurable: Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set.
- A = Attainable: When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them. You begin seeing previously overlooked opportunities to bring yourself closer to the achievement of your goals.
You can attain most any goal you set when you plan your steps wisely and establish a time frame that allows you to carry out those steps. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable, not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.
- R= Realistic: a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work. A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be. But be sure that every goal represents substantial progress. A high goal is frequently easier to reach than a low one because a low goal exerts low motivational force. Some of the hardest jobs you ever accomplished actually seem easy simply because they were a labor of love.
- T= Time: With no time frame tied to a goal there's no sense of urgency. If you want to paint your room, when do you want to paint it? "Someday" won't work.
WARNING: if you haven’t done or set a realistic goal once before I will advice you to start with the ones that are of fun…
This is a little goal i work on just in one day…………….."i painted my room money free".
