ESTABLISH CLEAR AND REALISTIC GOALS TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS
A blog post by: Alejandro Chabán
It doesn’t matter what your wish is, if you don’t have a clear vision of what you want, how it will help you, the time it will take to achieve it and the necessary determination to reach it, then your goals are dead in the water.
The reason you have to be so clear and specific about you goal is because otherwise what you get might not be what you want and you can get frustrated.
It’s like when you go to a restaurant. You don’t sit down and ask the waiter to bring you food.
First, you ask for the menu, read it calmly, look at all your options, check the prices, choose your dish, and then you are ready for the waiter. You tell him exactly what you want to eat from the appetizer to the main course, to dessert and coffe.
That’s exactly what you should do with your goals, too. Instead of saying, “ My goal this year is to be happy”, be specific. Make a list of the things that would make you happy, then focus on achieving those goals. The more clear, vivid, and detailed the goal, the easier it will be to achieve it in the long run.
“The more clear, vivid and detailed the goal, the easier it will be to achieve it in the long run”
Besides being clear and specific, your goals should be possible, attainable, tangible and realistic.
In my next blog I will talk about the three types of goals to succeed.
