Personal Goal Setting
Hello there… What’s happening? It sure feels a little strange to know that the summer is all over, ah well, what can you do?…
Anyway, one of the things that many people ask about is on the issue of personal goal setting. You see, procrastination is becoming a very common problem in our days, people never get things done!
So what is the solution? Is there a way to get rid of this? There is actually, by following these three steps:
Always be clear on what your goals are. You have to know where your heading before you leave the house right? Well, even though this sounds as common knowledge many people don’t do that. They just live their lives, continue their studies without setting real and proper goals. My personal advice to you is to set goals that are:
It’s better to say: “I want to get an A on this chemistry class” than to say “I want good grades in chemistry”. The more specific you are, the clearer the goal will be.
You have to, and I repeat, have to write your goals down, period. There is something about writing things down; I seriously don’t know what it is but I do know it sure works. When you write something done, you feel more committed to pursuing it than if you only have it in your mind.
>>Try it and see for yourself!
Walk the walk and don’t just talk the talk. You have to be patient and persevere, go after your goals with steadfastness. Empty words don’t get you anywhere, always keep that in mind.
