How to Set up a Goal That works
Goal setting is frowned upon by some people and viewed as a tough, annoying, and dreaded task. One of the main problems with goal setting is that people don’t know how to set up a goal to achieve it, which causes procrastination, and nothing gets accomplished.
Below Are Six Simple Steps to Set Up Your Goal:
Step 1: Define Your Goal
If we change the way we look at a situation, we can motivate ourselves. Imagine the act of setting a goal to be like going shopping for something you have wanted for a long time.
For example, if you’re into computers, then picture yourself going to your favorite computer shop to pick out any laptop you want! It’s the same with goal setting, imagine going shopping to choose any goal you want.
Let’s examine the goals for your career. You can prime your mind by making a list of the many possibilities as if they were items on a shelf.
What do I really want for my online business?
- Do I want to make more money?
- Do I want publicity?
- Do I want more free time?
- Do I want more control?
- Do I want to make my company top in the industry?
- Do I want to increase annual sales?
- Do I want to attract outside investors?
Asking questions will help you open up to the many possibilities allowing you to decide what you want most.
Step 2: Make Your Goal Specific
The more specific you are when you write down your goal, the more your goal will make sense to you, and help you to stay on track.
