Creating Goals In Your Life Will Give You The Energy You Want
What Are Goals?
What are goals and how can creating goals in your life give you the energy you want ? The short answer is FOCUS, but if you have not created smart goals it will be hard to find the focus you need to help you succeed.
The prestigious Oxford Dictionary defines a goal as ‘The object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result’. Simply put, a goal is something that one is trying to achieve.
Be SMART With Your Goals
A SMART goal is a measurable end result that is meant to be achieved in a set timeframe. For the purpose of this article, we will look at SMART Goals and their importance.
SMART Goals Are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound
They are Specific in the sense that the final outcome is known exactly.
Measurable means that the expected outcome can be seen clearly, that is there will be hard evidence that the goal has been achieved.
Attainable refers to how realistic you’re being when setting a goal. If it’s impossible to achieve, then you are not being realistic and you’re bound to fail.
Relevant refers to whether the set goal is going to change your or the situation in a positive manner or add value. If not, then there is no need to go down that road.
Time-bound refers to setting a time by which the said goal should be accomplished. SMART goals are not open-ended.
Setting Goals Will Help You To Live Your Dreams
So, why is it important to set goals? In the times we’re living in there are so many distractions and if we want to improve ourselves and be focused we must set goals. Goals make clear what is important in our life. When we set goals we move away from the realm of wishful thinking to a place of planning and executing with an end result in mind. This is the realm of successful people in life and so setting goals sets you up for success.
Unwrap The Powerful Gift Of Focus
Setting a goal motivates you to achieve that which you want to achieve now that the outcome is no longer vague in your mind. It pushes you and serves as a reminder every day that there are things you need to do to get there. When you set goals you tend to attain a level of self-discipline that you didn’t have before. You set your priorities and eliminate time wasters. Goals help you focus.
Where There Is No Vision
The People Perish
– Psalm 29:18
Setting goals also gives you a clear vision of the future and gives you something to look forward to. Once you are able to see this clear vision, you are driven to attain it. You can’t just sit back if you’re serious about the goals you have set; you are obliged to take action.
Creating Smart Goals To Gain Confidence
When you set goals you tend to get so much more out of life. You find yourself willing to try to do things you never thought you could before. Every milestone you attain helps you gain confidence in yourself and what you are capable of. In the process of striving to attain your goals you will learn new things, and when you attain a set goal you attain a feeling of self-fulfillment that is rare to find. This will push you to do even better and attain more in your life.
Creating smart goals help save time making sure that your time is not wasted on unnecessary activities. What’s more, it’s in the process of setting goals that you become clear on exactly what you want in life. And once you are clear, the end product can only be better.
