“The object of all work is production. There must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.”
~ Thomas A. Edison ~
Dreaming is the easy part
We all dream. Everyday. But, setting goals and keeping on task is tough. It’s easy to get busy with the urgent of the moment, not to mention all of life’s other distractions.
Consider 5 AREAS in your Life :
1. ❑ Occupation and Sense of Purpose
2. ❑ Personal Life (leisure, health, habits)
3. ❑ Your Most Intimate Relationship
4. ❑ Money and Financial Goals
5. ❑ Family and Friend Relationships
In review of the above, WHERE do I want to be in 1 year, in 3 years and in 10 years?
Was that easy to answer?
If you struggled with the above question, you are not alone. Life is busy. We run from one thing to another, hoping things will just fall into place. However, without a conscious plan we most often won’t reach our life goals.
Breaking dreams into workable goals
Studies show that for goals to be effective they cannot be vague. Turning dreams into reality requires conscious planning that is specific.
One way to work with goals, is to follow the SMART criteria :
Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Time-centered
How to help get you to your destination
Setting goals is a skill. Without clear goals we will not get results and we’ll end up frustrated. Find a close friend, colleague or family member who can be objective. Sit down and go over your goals with them. Ask for honest feedback.
Rework your goals until they match your dreams, until they fit the SMART criteria.
