Visualize and write

Have you thought about something you always really wanted? Like writing a book or traveling around the world? These are dreams hidden in the deepest core of our heart that were once denied, or we’re afraid to show because it’s silly.

Don’t worry. Jot all of them down in your note. Then think which are the most important and can be actualized. Make a list of top ten goals you really love to achieve. Don’t keep them under your drawer; instead, pin them on your room’s door or beside your mirror. Remember if you dream it, you actually can do it. Just try.

Make it S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely)

Specific

Write a detailed goal to define exactly what it is that you really want. Be precise—create a goal with clear purpose and objective.

specificMeasurable

Show the numbers as much as possible to know the limit of your goals. Don’t be extravagant; start small and it will grow bigger.

measurableAttainable

Make sure your goals are achievable. Don’t set goals that are impossible for you to accomplish. Start with easy ones, then build-up until you can manage them.

Realistic

Keep it simple and real. Set goals within your capability and skills. Though, you can go out form your comfort zone, begin first with what you already know and can do. Then if you think you can now do it, then try.

realistic

 Timely

Your goal must be at par within a time frame. If your goal doesn’t have time to follow, it will most likely vanish and get forgotten. Set a time for every goal, because time helps us reasonably. Believe it can be done.

timely

Create short term goals within a long term goal.

It’s also preferable to make small chunks of goals towards a greater goal. You can dream big, but you have to do it smaller first until you reach it.

Long term goal: I’ll become a famous fiction writer.

 Short term goal: I will practice fiction writing every three hours a day. Read a fiction book twice per month. And will also read about the famous fiction writers, and learn how to write fiction stories well.

 

Personal goal setting always begins with your choice and is accomplished with your effort. Reach your goals by doing, not wishing.
