Quick Goal Setting In Seven Steps

1-First write your goals down, sort short term, long term goals

2-List your personal benefits of reaching those goals, what do you get?  tangible  and non-tangible benefits

3-Assess your readiness, do you have the right resources: time, energy, health, people, support, money,environment, timing ?

4-List what is holding you back, eliminate goals you always put on your list but never succeed to achieve

5-Cut big goals into  small, easy steps:  decide the rewards you will give yourself for achieving those small steps and the big goal.

6-Give a realistic deadline (better under-promise then over achieve than the opposite)

7-Get a “buddy”:  having someone who is not judging you and with whom you can share your goals and achievements increases your motivation and chances of success. Tract your actions, failures and progresses  in a journal and change your priorities and actions accordingly.

Tip: Decide one day in the week to dedicate 1 hour maximum to review your goals and do your weekly planning .
