Something I have to confess is that I’m not always that great at setting goals and when I do, I procrastinate about how I am going to achieve this. The definition of goal setting states that “Goal Setting involves establishing specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-targeted (S.M.A.R.T) goals. Work on the theory of goal-setting suggests that an effective tool for making progress is to make sure that participants in a group with a common goal are clearly aware of the expectations.”
Taking that into account, setting a goal is something that requires not only dedication but something that you want to pursue to either better oneself or do something which will give you a purpose. I then sit wondering what is it that I ultimately want to do, and how will I set a timeframe to achieving that?
So where do I start and this is where I need help from you, my peers, what do you define is a goal and where have you set a goal and made sure you meet it. I know that once I commit to a set of goals and put my mind to it I will succeed in completing them and that is the satisfaction I am looking for in life.
I have come a long way on the last year after changing all that I knew for this new adventure, and with the changes which are happening in my life at the moment, I have this deep need to set longer term goals which will motivate me more each day.
I think also the fact of how quickly time passes is something that is driving this desire to want more from the life that I am living and the opportunities I have been given.
With that being said I think I really need to take time away from the hustle and bustle of life and focus on what I want for myself. Until then I hope you are well friends and if you have any tips or pieces of inspiration that you want to share in helping me on this journey, I would love to hear from you…
