5 Steps to Successful Goal Setting

Goal setting is the secret to a successful personal and business life. Although setting a goal may seem simple, achieving it is a whole different story.

Your chances of achieving your goals will be non-existent unless you know what you want, are passionate about it, and a have a solid, realistic action plan; this is the difference between dreams and wishes – and indeed achievable goals!

When you’re going after a goal, you’ll come across many bumps on the road. Here are five methods that will help achieve the success you deserve.

1. Know what you want
Discover your exact goal and write it down, so it seems more real. What will be achieving that goal look like to you? Be as specific as possible about your desired result. Your success will be a measure of your clarity – since you cannot create an achievable goal plan around a foggy “dream.”

2. Be willing to adjust your lifestyle
Success takes dedicated planning and effort. Creating more success in your business may mean less recreational time. However, once you have created a plan, you’ll be able to balance your life and work along with your business. The better the plan, the closer you move towards your goal. There’s always time for everything you want to accomplish!

3. Get passionate
One of the most powerful tools in your “success toolbox” is having passion. The intense, passionate desire for your goal will help in creating the new pathway to your goal even faster. Passion will help you rapidly override any inappropriate old “failure messages” stored in your subconscious mind.

4. Focus on your goal every day
A clear mental and daily focus are important and necessary to create a new pathway towards your new goal. Daily focus will prevent the old mental habits that have kept you from your goal to take over. Don’t let your goal take a back seat to the daily tasks and distractions; life WILL try to get in your way. Focus on what you DO want and the big picture!

5. Create an action plan and follow through

Successful goal achievement is built by taking one small action at a time. The word is ACTION! If you commit to taking at least one small action each day, your actions WILL add up and make a difference.

You CAN create whatever you want in life. The secret is to determine exactly what you want, then pursue it passionately. But remember — in the end, only action counts! You can’t just dream about it, you must DO IT!

How does your workspace invite productivity?

Your workspace reflects your mind. However, most people find it easier to focus and get things done when things are tidy.

Organizing your workspace can get complicated, but the simplest way to keep things tidy is to reduce clutter. Clutter is the ultimate enemy of a tidy workspace.

How can you organize your workspace to increase productivity?

Create a Zone for Important Stuff

Create a space for important things that need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Prioritize according to urgency.

Create a Zone for Current Stuff

Create a space for files and things related to any current or ongoing projects. Once a project is completed, file it with your regular files.

Go Paperless

A great deal of workplace clutter is paper, but in today’s digital office, there’s little need for it. Whenever possible, go paperless. Scan documents and store files digitally. Going paperless not only reduces the clutter paperwork causes but is also good for the environment.

Look around your workspace and envision the type of space you would enjoy taking care of your work. Then build a space that will keep you creative and motivated.

Self-improvement and success are related

How do you know if a person is willing to attain self-improvement?  A question with no definite answer. It will all depend on the individual.

Many people have goals, dreams, or ambitions but do not know how to go about achieving them. They may have thought about what would make up self-improvement and their ideal life, but have no idea how to begin to make plans and take the actions required to make them a reality.

Some people perceive that self-improvement is about having a better job, given better opportunities, more money, meeting the love of their life, or whatever else, and they would be happy. They measure their happiness or lack of happiness by external factors and might think that their thoughts and actions are of little consequence, spending little time thinking about what they want from life.

Other people do not even know what they want from their lives and may have little idea what would make them happy. They seem to just drift from day to day, week to week, month to month, and year to year, and do little more than just about get by.

The reality is that throughout our lives we are all constantly growing and developing from circumstances that make us grow and develop, even if we do not make the conscious decision to do so.

Up to a certain age, we learn through formal education, and we continue to learn through our experiences for the rest of our lives. We learn and grow to deal with everything that life throws at us. We all go through self-improvement. For anyone living in modern society, there are more opportunities to do anything that you want to do with your life than ever before; the opportunities are endless.

A commitment to self-improvement and personal growth may well be the deciding factor in how anyone’s future will turn out.
