Have You Set Your Goals For 2010?

Setting Goals

Goal setting is planning for personal achievement. It is a formal process of setting personal targets in a number of areas. The process of setting goals on routine basis helps you decide what you want to achieve with your time, and then set the precise personal target that will lead you to achieving this.

Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Rewarding and Timely.

  • The more specific your goals are the more likely you are to be successful in a shorter amount of time.
  • You need a way to measure your progress toward the accomplishment of your goals, some specific criteria that will tell you when you’ve achieved the goal.
  • An attainable goal is one you believe that you can achieve. Goals should be challenging but reachable.
  • A goal is rewarding when you have clear reasons why you want to reach that goal.
  • Your goal should have a specific time limit. Setting a timeline will protect you from procrastination and perfectionism.

By planning well you can ensure that you concentrate only on those tasks that will move you towards your goal in the most effective way possible, without being distracted by unimportant but urgent tasks.
