Setting Goals

imageIn my course of my work and social activities, I get to meet many people.

And it amazes me to see that many people are aimless. They just go through the motion. And have not much of a goal in life.

As long as their is a comfort and security of job, it’s all good. They tell me that they don’t see the need to excel.

They don’t want to get out of the comfort zone.

I find this very sad.

Is this what life should be all about? Being mediocre?

Even those that have goals are often vague about it.

It’s not good enough.

It has to be more specific.

What I found was that the very action of writing down your goals on paper can be very powerful in internalizing them into your subconscious.

Now you are doing something about it.

It’s no longer just pies in the sky.

Now you are willing to take some responsibility towards achieving what you want.

Writing it down on paper is the important first step.

But it doesn’t end there.

You have to constantly review your goals…review your progress…and make changes if necessary.

The constant review will keep your mind razor focused on your final destination. And will keep you on your toes.

Sometimes, I forget to do this.

And I find myself getting off the pace.

So now, I try to do a daily review. And plan my next course of action that will lead me to my goals.

I write them all my short term…medium term…and long term goals.

And nothing gives me greater satisfaction when I’m able to hit my milestone.

You might want to give this a try.

And you will find your life a lot more purposeful.

Another great post, and so true. It’s all about the pursuit of excellence at the end of the day. ‘Specific’ is the key word.. and if you want to succeed at something, you have to focus on specific things that need to be improved.

Your blog is an inspiration, keep it up.

I find that if you put constraints around yourself and your time, you will ALWAYS work better and achieve more. Working from inside a set of parameters — instead of working from a place of infinite possibilities — will cause you to be more productive in general, and reach the goals you’ve set.

@Alex – You got that right about specificity. And thanks for your kind comment.

@Greg – You made a great point about putting constraints around yourself. I find that when I’ve a real deadline (e.g. I have to get some work done before my 2pm meeting) – I have to move real fast. There’s no choice. You just have to get it done!

Very well said! This is a common sight nowadays to see people with no aims or goals in their life. They just take each day as it comes and this approach is very bad by any standards. As you said, unless we have goals and channelize our time and efforts properly, we can never achieve great things. It is a complete waste of talent, time and money. Writing down our goals and thereby internalizing it in our subconscious really is the right approach.

Almost everything in life can be looked at as a project. Each project can have a specific set of ‘tasks’ or goals which are written down. Then you constantly monitor whether you are meeting your goals or not. If not then you re-evaluate where you are at and figure out what needs to be done to reach your goals. What’s my point, that the same thing can be done with life goals.

I think being straddled with responsibility I would rather continue in mediocrity than to take a risk that could adversely affect what my family has. We all have dreams including myself however if I went for it and failed what would happen to my three beautiful girls and my wonderful wife? They shouldn’t need to do without because of my failure. Sometimes realism needs to take over in place of idealism.

I’ve always felt this way! People simply don’t see the BIG picture. They have no sense of growth, experience, success, or challenge. Most just want to stick to their mediocre routines and have the same circle of friends since they were 10. I’ve always found this baffling and wondered how the majority of masses think this way. There is only a small percentage that have the desire to want more….and your suggestion of writing down goals and dreams really does work.

I absolutely agree. Even in the simplest tasks, if you don’t know what you want to make or where you are going, you will never finish it or get to your destination. However, I understand why it is so difficult to set long term goals in life for many of us. There are endless possibilities, and you feel you don’t know which ending will be the best for you, what will bring the things you want from life, also if you find yourself on crossroads where neither choice leads exactly to where you want to be, it is difficult to stay on course. Nevertheless, knowing what you want from your life and writing it down and keeping on track will surely bring more success than just wandering around aimlessly.

You really have a nice post to go through and as I think, a person never forgets the goals that he has set to achieve in his life and he also must not loose his heart but rather keep trying to achieve it. Life is an ongoing journey, with lots of beginnings and continuations. We never get to a point when all knowledge is attained and understood, when our bodies function flawlessly, when we completely honor our values, and achieve every goal. We get better when we do better. And we do better when we know better. Personal development is the way that we purposely make everything count!

I agree with you but was taught a long time ago to not concern myself with the idea that others do not wish to succeed as I do. If everyone had goals to succeed – perhaps everything may be more competitive?? Just a thought.

What I’ve learned over the years is that it’s better to verbalize your thoughts, because doing it, somehow your mind starts to organize the stream of consciousness, and without even notice it you start to see things in a clearer light. Writing – helps us even more, and as you said especially when it comes to setting up our goals. We should put the word on paper: long term plans, short term plans and just by writing them we are making the first step.

Very well said! This is a common sight nowadays to see people with no aims or goals in their life. They just take each day as it comes and this approach is very bad by any standards. As you said, unless we have goals and channelize our time and efforts properly, we can never achieve great things. It is a complete waste of talent, time and money. Writing down our goals and thereby internalizing it in our subconscious really is the right approach.

Being to vague, not continually checking progress, these are often the signs of poorly thought out goals. It’s also very crucial to have multiple dreams and aspirations, and to be able to move between them like one of those plate-spinners who gets 5 to 10 plates spinning simultaneously, and then moves back and forth between them when the opportunity (or need, in this analogy) arises. Great stuff, though!

Many people feel as if they’re adrift in the world. They work hard, but they don’t seem to get anywhere worthwhile.
A key reason that they feel this way is that they haven’t spent enough time thinking about what they want from life, and haven’t set themselves formal goals. After all, would you set out on a major journey with no real idea of your destination? Probably not!

Click this video to find out how to set powerful goals.

Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future, and for motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality.
The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You’ll also quickly spot the distractions that can, so easily, lead you astray.

Why Set Goals?
Goal setting is used by top-level athletes, successful business-people and achievers in all fields. Setting goals gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation. It focuses your acquisition of knowledge, and helps you to organize your time and your resources so that you can make the very most of your life.
By setting sharp, clearly defined goals, you can measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals, and you’ll see forward progress in what might previously have seemed a long pointless grind. You will also raise your self-confidence, as you recognize your own ability and competence in achieving the goals that you’ve set.

That is right, goals are very important. Goal setting is very powerful and helps keeping people focused on what they are suppose to do, to achieve their goal. It is also true that people never really achieve much success, because they don`t want to get out of their comfort zone. But with proper goals, it can be easier to get out of the comfort zone. Great article!

This is so true, Jag, I remember taking a couple of social psychology classes, and the professor there said that one of the impending problems of our age is the tendency for young people to not have clear, attainable goals…it’s a sad reality, one won’t be changed unless we do something about education systems.

Goals are considered as the desired general ends towards your effort. One should be able to formulate their goals in life or in their respective fields in order for them to perform their strategic principle towards their goals. You cannot actually do a certain task if you don’t know why you are doing it or for what purpose are your task is. Formulating of goals based on the time like short-term and long-term goals in actually right. You should be able to have goals in the near future so that you can connect a particular act for that.

Keep it Positive. The language in which you write your goal is crucial. Although subtle, there is a difference between “Don’t breathe from the flags to the wall” and “I will keep my head down from the flags to the wall.” Put it in the first person and use commanding words like “I will do this” or “I am doing that” rather than “I will try to.”

Hi Jag Foo

Thank you for sharing this great, and very important post!

I fully agree with everything you say… too many people that I talk to do not have any major goals, except just having security in their life. But unfortunately security will only bring you mediocre things, and you will not be able to be in a constant personal development. Humans feel enthusiastic when having big and specific dreams they can completely visualize, and when we reach a goal, we get this great satisfaction for a while, until we are ready to move on to our next goal. Our life should be dynamic and not static. We should always strive to have and be something more… that does not mean that all goals have to be huge goals… any type of goal that we reach will give us something. We will grow from it.
I can’t imagine living in such a way, where you have no goals and no hope and believe in your dreams. I happen to dream really big and still have total faith in my dreams. Now, some may say that is being naïve and unrealistic, and yes it is… but I am so grateful that is how I am, and that I dare to dream and dream big. Because all in all I do believe that if you have to achieve any of your goals, you first need to truly believe in them and then work on a plan on how to accomplish them.

Now, I also write down my goals, and use the SMART goal method so that I give myself a deadline, which works great for me. I also separate them into longs-term and short-term goals, where the short-term goals more or less are minor goals I have to achieve, which will eventually lead me to my long-term goal.

Anyway… Thank you for sharing this important message with the world!

In Setting up goals you should keep some points in mind.These are

no.3.Achievable

no.5.Time.
You have to mix all these to achieve goals.

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 it’s an effective tool for making progress by ensuring that participants in a group with a common goal are clearly aware of what is expected from them.

Setting a goal encourages us to reach the goal however the way may be. It always insists us to reach the goal. Moreover, setting up a goal never makes us give up the goal.

Goal Setting is an important task in one’s life, it gives proper direction to an individual to lead certain path and also provides certain purpose to life to travel along.
“A man with a defined goal is like an Arrow shot from a bow aiming at certain target”. But for getting such an arrow to hit a aimed target requires Determination, concentration, hard work and Commitment. Similarly, achieving the defined aim requires proper planning, execution, dedication, determination and of all sheer hard work on the part of person to achieve it.

It is very important to write down the goals which we wish to achieve because this helps to penetrate the goal deep down into the subconscious mind and then it is the role of it to play its part and bring the goal soon to reality.Also goals provide a sense of direction to ones life.Hence it is very important to have your goal clearly written down and place it somewhere so that it is always visible to your eyes.

Great post, I like to follow the SMART rule for setting goals. You need to check whether your goals follow this pattern:

S:Specific– are your goals specific?
M:Measurable– if you can’t measure them, how do you know if you’ve made progress?
A:Attainable– is your goal possible to accomplish?
R:Realistic– is it something you can reasonably do?
T:Timely– If it takes you 10 years to accomplish your goal, it will be much more difficult to stay positive.

I think we should start goal setting in a small way and keep walking because it is not necessary to go in the big way only.Also when we set a too big goal for us we often find it too overwhelming and time consuming.Eventually we give up the idea or change our goals.This is the only reason why small goals are preferable and in this way we can measure our achievement.

I agree with you that the Goals are absolutely an important one! I think that you must set goals for toward yourself. The way so many goals are missed is that people forget to take the action to reach them. If you are going to set goals, you must put power into making them.

If you are really serious on making things happen then you need to write the goals down and be very specific; identify milestones, what you need, the time-frame and more importantly why you are going for this particular goal.

Great post, and I completely agree with you. “What gets measured, gets managed”. You just need to decide on what your goals are, whether they are financial, work related or of a more personal character. Then follow up! Don’t quit, persist. And if you think you’re headed in the wrong direction, then adjust. Thanks again, and looking forward to your next posts!

Hi there, Jag.

I agree with you in saying that there are a lot of people who are aimless. I found them simple and contented however there is much more tom live this life. I have the same feeling as these people as before. I always ask why do I have to do my best in all things when the only thing that I need to do is work and get compensated. I guess, I don’t need to say it all in details but I had great realizations when I entered marketing.

I think most people tend to be aimless, because they look at their present and don’t see much for the future. The reality is, if people are able to see potential in what they’re currently doing, then they’ll look to the future in hopes of something bright. So that’s what people must work on, to begin with, what they’re currently engaged in.

Well I am totally disagreed with Mr. Foo. I don’t think writing your goals on a piece of paper is important to achieve them. What i believe is that if you have any goal, then you will try to achieve it from the deepest of your soul. Writing on paper and timely editing and updating your goal will lead you to nothing. It shows that how dissatisfied you are for choosing XYZ goal. In my case my goal is not only a goal in fact it is my passion. I devote my days and nights to achieve that goal and will surely achieve it..

Nice post

Setting goals is very important for any one in life. Many people when they are young set up many goals. But once they enter the true life journey their goals seems fading away.They just set up in a comfort zone and want to continue in that phase itself.

To achieve a goal one should have a zeal. they should obviously work hard for their aim. But if reached or achieved should not stop but set up another goal so that their strive to become successful in life never ends. The best idea to achieve your goal is to setup few steps and reviewing your progress regularly. This will definitely lead you to achieve your goal.

Thank you for sharing.
