Some tips on effective goal setting
Here are some useful, practical and simple guidelines that would surely help you set your own goals effectively and achieve them.
? Try to set performance goals that are achievable and feasible. Many people fall on the mistake of setting outcome goals that they have really no control over. Performance goals are goals, which can be achieved by sheer determination and action. Outcome goals are usually situations or state of being that sometimes are out of control.
? Be specific when setting goals. By being specific, you have to specify the desired and target outcome of a set of actions or moves. By being specific, you also set measurability of an action, so you can check every now and then the progress you are doing over a goal.
? Be realistic on setting goals. Do not set goals, which are, in general and from the start, impossible to achieve. Adults and analytic people know how to be realistic most of the time.
? Do not aim for the sky. They say, aim for the ceiling instead of the sky, because the ceiling is easier to reach than the sky. By so doing, achieving a goal becomes easier and more motivating. If you want to pursue a higher goal after attaining an initial one, then go for it. After reaching the ceiling, you can now start to aim for the sky. Failures for such goals would hurt more, for sure, so be ready to the endless possibilities.
? Think of your goals over and over. Doing so would enable you to perform a simple reality check. Check on yourself, the situation, the available resources, your skills and the overall backdrop. This would enable you to check on the feasibility and your progress on achieving the goal you have set yourself.
Overall, successful people have attained success because they learned how to meet and achieve their goals. If you want to achieve something or be somebody, start setting your goals. That would provide you with a good and effective start up.
