If you raise the majority what's their one major objective in life, they would probably give you a vague answer, such as, "I wish to achieve success, be happy, create an honest living," that is it. They are all desires and none of them are clear goals.
Goals should be SMART:
1. S--specific. for instance, "I want to lose weight." This is wishful thinking. It becomes a goal after I pin myself right down to "I will lose ten pounds in ninety days."
2. M--must be measurable. If we have a tendency to cannot live it, we have a tendency to cannot accomplish it. measuring could be a means of observance our progress.
3. A--must be achievable. Achievable means that it should be out of reach enough to be challenging but it should not be out of sight, otherwise it becomes disheartening.
4. R--realistic. an individual WHO needs to lose fifty pounds in~30 days is being surrealistic.
5. T--time-bound. There should be a beginning date and a finishing date.
Enthusiasm without direction is like wildfire and leads to frustration.Goals give a sense of direction. Would you sit in a train or a plane without knowing where it was going? The obvious answer is no.Then why do people go through life without having any goals?
