Tips for setting goals

Setting goals is not just about setting resolutions in the new year. In fact, they may not even qualify as targets. They are like items on a wish list. If you have made resolutions on quitting smoking or losing weight, you will immediately know that these are rarely eligible as targets.

So what is the definition of purpose and how does it differ from desire or desire?

When you make up your mind to accomplish a task, you need to set a goal. It is different from a wish or desire, which is just something you want or want to get. The SMART method is a time-tested technique when setting your goals. SMART is an acronym that describes the attributes of purpose. SMART is specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time sensitive.

When setting goals, you need to make sure that your goals are actually smart. A goal cannot be common in nature. It should be solid and detailed. Every goal that has been set should be able to answer the questions of who, why, what, where, when and how. Simply saying that you want a bigger house is not a goal because it is not quantifiable. If you say you want a bigger house in the next year, you can make it your goal. That is why a goal must be measurable. Otherwise there is no way to confirm whether you have achieved the goal or not.

In addition, your goal should be realistic and practical. There is no point in wanting a bigger house if you do not have the money to pay for it and you are not expecting an increase in the next one year. Therefore, it is important to achieve a goal based on the skills or resources at your disposal. Your goal cannot be considered realistic if it is unreasonable. This definition of purpose is relative because what seems ‘reasonable’ to you may be ‘irrational’ to another person.

Lastly, your goals should have an end date or expected completion date. Goals cannot be open end. That’s why when setting goals you need to make sure they are sensitive over time. This is what makes goals different from activities. For example, getting a big house at some point in the future is not the same as getting a big house in the next one year.
