Setting attainable goals requires some techniques. Above all, it is possible to learn these techniques. Here are some of them that may help to set, execute, and complete goals.
Set a SMART Goal
How many of you have set an unachievable goal? I once did that! I set a goal that was unrealistic and ended up not completing it. I had to deal with the frustration.
Every so often, we set goals that we can not achieve. Before setting a goal, spend a quality time in the planning phase. First and foremost, be sure that your goal meets the SMART criteria.
Specific: Clearly spell out what you want to achieve.
Measurable: You should be able to measure whether that goal is a success or a failure.
Attainable: The goal should be something that you and those who will help you agree upon.
Realistic: Set a goal that is can be achieved.
Timely Manner: Plan the time you are going to use to completed your goal.
After all, whether your task is a small or a big one, make it SMART. It will only help you to stay on track from start to finish.
Stay Focused on Your Goals
Regrettably, we set excellent goals but lose interest as we start the execution process. Most of the times we get bored and quit. Whatever goal you have, do not lose interest.
Instead, be vigilant and focus on completing the goal. Take the necessary actions towards achieving it. Embrace the boredom of tasks taken to complete these goals.
Those who are discomfort complete their goals successfully. Once you start feeling comfortable, you won’t achieve big results. Do not make your goals a checklist.
In my opinion, a goal should be attainable but challenging. Most of us fall into the trap of creating easy goals. You will achieve them, but accomplish less.
Visualize Your Achievements
If you set a long term goal, imagine the end result. Your imagination may motivate you to accomplish the goal on time. Live the dream even before you make it a reality.
Sometimes it does not hurt to live the dream. Image what it would be if you completed your goal. Even if you do not complete it, imagine that you have.
Learn to Forgive Yourself
Sometimes it is good to sit back and reflect on what you could have done differently. Do not be harsh on yourself when you don’t accomplish a goal. Chances are there are better ways ahead of you.
Review your goals and discover what went wrong. Once your know it, try to tweak the goal and move on. Whatever you do, do not settle on the failure.
