Theme: Self Actualization – Goal setting. Why am I doing this again?
By losing your goal, You have lost your way.
Goal setting is such an overlooked, and underestimated, life task. It is the people who take the time to really think about what they are doing in life, why they have chosen this path, where they are hoping to go…these are the people who find their way to success in their own life. Often, the people around them think that they are “lucky” or have advantages that they themselves do not have. When in reality, this is NOT true at all! Success is the direct result of a little bit of planning, taking advantage of opportunities that show up and working around the obstacles when they fall directly into your planned path. If you don’t think, in detail, about your goals, you will most likely lose your way in the difficult times. Your goals help you make decisions about what is a priority and what can wait, what opportunities to take and ones to shelve and how to get yourself back from distraction and procrastination (You know you do it! Secretly…so do I, but my goals remind me why I am working this hard and get me back on track).
Today…check out the Goal Setting resource following this blog entry. Try using some of the strategies to set some small goals for yourself for the next week.
