What does having a goal do for you?
Goals provide direction. They also provide a way to see beyond today.
Many experts on the subject of goal setting seem to agree on one thing: the importance of writing goals down and reviewing them often.
You know how movement clarifies choreography, right? Your thoughts concerning your goals are clarified when you transfer them to paper (or to the screen of a device).
Great things happen when the hand and the head work together. And the simple act of writing down what you want suggests that you believe it’s attainable.
You might look at this as “thinking with ink”—or with a keyboard.
Ready, set, goal.
When you’re ready to write down your goals . . .
- Be specific. Vague goals produce vague results.
- Break goals down into small, achievable parts. Why? Because ginormous goals may feel overwhelming and can squash your confidence. (But be careful. Puny goals may limit your motivation if they’re too easy to attain.)
- Resist trying to achieve too many goals at once. This wastes time and is unproductive.
- Maintain reasonableness. Be practical.
- Believe you have what it takes to achieve your goals. Never stop believing.
