A Thing To Think About - Goals
Writing down your goals and then reviewing them on a regular basis can make a major difference to your life.
The review of your written goals is very important, as you need to keep yourself focused on what you want to achieve and it also helps to have some way of measuring whether you are making progress.
Look at your life now. Are you drifting along, living each day but with no real target about where you want to go?
It seems to be a human thing. We are more focused on where we are going on holiday this year, or the next gadget/luxury item we want, rather than thinking about where we want to take ourselves in our life.
Time is ticking away. You canít buy time, all you can do is look at how you spend it. With a goal written down, you are telling your brain that thereís something that you want to accomplish.
Get a piece of paper now and write down 3 goals youíd like to achieve (remember to shoot for the stars on one of them). Then have some fun with each goal. Imagine backwards from achieving the goal how you got there.
For example, if it was a new guitar you wanted, the step before you bought it may be selecting where you were going to buy it.
You should end up with a set of events leading back from achieving your target (itís normally easier to work back from a goal, than it is to work forward to it when you want to look at what steps are involved in achieving your goal).
Have a think about who might be able to support you achieving this goal (e.g. your best friend/partner/family member). Pick someone who is positive (after all you want someone whoís going to cheer you on, not pour cold water over everything).
Itís easier to have a team of supporters cheering you on than it is to try and take on the whole thing yourself.
Look at your goal events list and pick one action that will move you nearer to your goal and go and do it (may be worth starting off with some of the easier ones, as they normally take less time and they also help to build your confidence).
