Following is an abbreviated
goal setting list
from the international best-seller,
Don't Tie Yourself Up
ENVISION YOUR GOALS.
Know exactly what you want. Be able to see yourself actually
attaining your goals. Get into this habit of envisioning
several times a day. You are half-way to any goal if you
can "see" yourself achieving it first.
2.) HAVE A PASSIONATE
DESIRE TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS.
If all you do is make a list of things that would be "nice"
to accomplish, forget it! In order to achieve our goals
we must have a burning desire to do so.
3.) MAKE YOUR
GOALS WELL-DEFINED AND MEASURABLE.
Be specific when setting your goals so that they allow
you to measure your progress. (for example, if you're
in sales, a goal should not be that you will have more
appointments than last month. You should define this goal
with specific numbers; i.e. I will have 20 appointments
this week, or 75 this month.)
4.) BE FLEXIBLE.
Be ready to re-adjust your goals and not give up on them.
If they are too easy, they won't be worthwhile, and if
they are too tough, and you will start thinking that the
idea of goal setting is worthless. Remember, small victories
lead to big successes.
5.) SET A DEFINITE
TIME PERIOD FOR YOUR GOALS.
Many people have things they have planned to do for a
long time, but have never done. Just having the goals
is not good enough, we must have a time frame to complete
6.) WRITE DOWN
When you do, your likelihood of achieving them is dramatically
increased. Place little notes around the house so you
can see your goals constantly.
7.) TAKE ACTION.
This is the most important one of all. If you don't take
action, then everything up to this point has been wishing,
not goal setting.
We hope this goal
setting list helps you to become more successful and
we wish you the best for a positive future!
