Defining goals

You can define your goal and stop missing opportunities.



Without a goal, no plans can be made. However, once your goal has been clearly defined, steps for its achievement can be set. In doing this, you will focus on what has to be done, and you’ll discovered opportunities.

What does it mean to define your goals?

It means knowing that goals are the blueprint for success.

It means knowing that goals paint a picture.

It means knowing that goals give you power.


Goals are the blueprint for success
Effective goal setting requires you to make a blueprint of what you desire to accomplish. This causes you to think through what needs to be done and when to do it.

Goals paint a picture
Just as a blueprint for a house shows you what it will look like, how large it will be, and how many rooms it will have, effective goal setting allows you to see your success before it is achieved.

Goals give you power
A well-designed goal creates a sense of healthy tension. If you are committed to your goal and believe in its obtainment, this commitment and belief will give you the power you need to overcome any obstacles that will come your way.

Remember what Hunt and Schuller said about goals:

Goals are dreams with deadlines.
Diana Scarf Hunt

Goals are not only absolutely necessary to motivate us. They are essential to really keep us alive.
