Where do you start? After reading about setting SMART goals, you want to embark on the process, but you have no idea where to start. Creating bigger goalswill be your key to success.
The implication would be that your goals currently aren’t good. This is not the case. Now the key is to create goals bigger than yourself. So what does that mean?
First step for Bigger Goals
Write down everything you want, want to do, and want to learn.
I have covered this in passing, but never as in depth as the past few posts have been.
If you don’t have a list that you can physically see then you won’t work toward those goals. The reason is quite simple, you typically don’t move toward something you can’t see.
So get this list together….
Learn Goal Setting
If you will slow down to speed up for just a moment and look at the SMART system you will find how to hone in on your goals. Most people simply don’t know how to set goals, now you have the information… we have to figure out how to achieve them.
Achievement may actually be closer than you think.
Edit Your Goals
So do you remember that piece of paper? Now go through the entire system, and edit them.
You may have to make them more specific. You could possibly have to implement a measuring mechanism. You may have to come to reality and make the goal a bit closer to achievement. You may also strike some goals off your list…
Finally, now you have to put a deadline on everything. The dilemma you may find yourself in is spreading yourself too thin. Remember this isn’t a bucket list of wants… these are the things you are now doing.
When you are trying to put deadlines on this list you may want to be considerate of other deadlines.
For example if you want to learn Spanish in 1 year, learning Japanese probably isn’t happening in that same year.
If you did want to do both in the same year, that would be acceptable. It would also be quite difficult. I am all about pushing your capabilities, but not beyond breaking.
