Have you set goals for yourself yet?
Setting goals is one of the most important parts of achieving success. Sometimes these goals can be hard to achieve but, most definitely not impossible. At the end of the day it’s important to look into the goal setting process and making sure you’re not setting yourself up for failure.
In this article you will learn what goal setting mistakes most people make so that you don’t get stuck making them as well.
It can be easy to go overboard on the goal setting, but the rule of quality over quantity applies here. It’s much better to set a few goals that are important to you and that you are committed to achieving rather than setting loads of goals that you know you won’t active.
Many people set goals, but never really spend time planning their strategies. Planning for your goals can include setting an action strategy in place on how you plan to achieve this goal, by when you would like to achieve it and why you want to achieve it.
Setting a time limit for your goal can help you stay accountable and keep you on the right track. But it’s very important that this time limit is accurate. Do not set time limits that are too long because then you can get easily distracted and spend more time then necessary. Setting a goal with a time limit that is too short is also bad since you are basically setting yourself up for failure.
A lot of people may see this as an unnecessary step, but writing you goal down on a piece of paper can be a key factor in staying motivated. It can even be a good idea to keep a copy of your goals in your pocket or backpack, because the more you read and see your goals, the more motivated and inspired you will be to achieve them.
When you review your results every end of the week, you get a good idea of which strategies and techniques have worked and which of them need to be changed or improved. The effort you put in directly reflects in the results you get.
Do a weekly review of your goals and ask yourself the following questions:
-How am I doing?
-What have I achieved this week?
-What went well?
-What went wrong?
-How can I improve next week?
So as you can see there are a lot of goal setting mistakes that can keep you from achieving your goals. These are some of the main mistakes that you can avoid.
