EIGHT COMMON
GOAL SETTING MISTAKES
Setting
Goal setting
that doesn't work
is often:
REALISTIC or REWARDING
First you need to
minimize your list down to 2 - 7
manageable goals.
What makes some
goal setting effective
and some not?
Some are just fantasy
Some are wishes or hopes that may not be realistic right now
Some are other people's wishes (partner, parent)
Some are too general
Why Bother to Set Goals
When We Could Just
DO
Something?
Because we seldom get motivated or know where to start without priorities
Goals allow us to set priorities in a step by step method
Goals help organize us step by step
Goals can motivate us to achieve (like a carrot on a stick
All in all, they put us in control because they allow us, not someone else or circumstance, to decide when, how, how much we will do.
Unrealistic
Not generated by you
Too open ended, not specific enough
Too hard to see the benefit
To be 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!
One of the best ways
to achieve your goals
is to use the
S.M.A.R.T.
goal setting system.
A specific goal has a much greater chance
of being accomplished than a general goal.
One common mistake when setting goals is than you aren't detailed enough.
To set a specific goal you must answer the six "W" questions.
Who:
Who does this goal involve?
What:
What do I want to accomplish?
Where:
Where is the location or place of this goal?
When:
When will you accomplish this goal?
Which:
Which things would hold you back from accomplishing this goal?
Why:
Why do you want to accomplish this goal?
SPECIFIC
MEASURABLE
When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates and experience the exhilaration of achievement.
To determine if your goal is measurable, ask yourself questions like....
How much?
How many?
How will I know when it is accomplished?
ACHIEVABLE
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.
TIME-BOUND
A goal should be grounded within a time frame. With no time frame tied to it, there's no sense of urgency.
"Someday" just won't work.

If you commit to a date, then you've set your unconscious mind into motion to begin working on the goal.

Education
Family
Artistic
Attitude
Physical
Pleasure
Volunteering
Step 2:
Setting Smaller Goals
Create a one-year plan then a six-month plan of progressively smaller goals that you should reach to achieve your lifetime goals.

Then create a daily TO-DO LIST of things that you should do today to work towards your lifetime goals.
Further Goal Setting Tips
1. State each goal as a positive statement
2. Be precise
3. Set priorities
4. Write goals down
5. Keep operational goals small
6. Set performance goals, not outcome goals.
Staying on Course
Once you've decided on your first set of goals, keep the process going by reviewing and updating your To-Do list regularly.
Achieving Goals
Take the time to enjoy the satisfaction of having achieved your goals. Reward yourself!
This helps builds self-confidence that you deserve.
Key Points
Goal setting is an important method of:
Deciding what you want to achieve in your life.
Separating what's important from what's irrelevant or a distraction.
Motivating yourself.
Building your self-confidence, based on successful achievement of goals.

Lets listen to 2 professionals

4. Make an Action plan
5. Stick with it!
Goal Setting is a 2 Part Process
1. Deciding what you want to achieve
2. Devising a plan to achieve the results you desire
Why Should I Set Goals?
Essentially, goal setting allows you
to separate what's important from what's irrelevant (or less relevant).
It motivates you and builds your knowledge, skills and confidence, based on your achievements.
Goal + Action
= SUCCESS
Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal.

Herodotus
I’d rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are;
because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star.
I’d rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far; for a might have-been has never been,
but a has was once an are.
