Another Look At Goals~~~~Susie Austin

Give me a stock clerk with a goal

 and I’ll give you a man

who will make history.

Give me a man with no goals

and I’ll give you a stock clerk.

 

Let’s take another look at goals today. With only seven weeks left in this year I would like to encourage you to take a good at your goals and see where you are today. Have you accomplished what you have set for this year? Do you need to revisit and possibly adjust what your plan is for the end of the year? If you do not have goals, why not consider starting a plan for the end of this year?

A goal is simply the end toward which the effort is directed. If you have no goals it is quite difficult to successfully achieve them. I believe when you begin using goals in your life your purpose becomes a bit more defined or clear. With no goals it is difficult to actually know what progress you are making if any, or what you would like to achieve. I firmly believe in order to get where you want in life you must have clear goals, visit them often and be willing to change them as you are changing all the time. Goals should always be written down as it makes you accountable for them. Goals should be attainable, have a time line and check progress regularly. Goals should be measurable; this gives you encouragement as you progress to accomplish them.

The most important thing to remember with goals in my opinion is to never give up! It is your life, you are in control and you are creating it every day. Continue on a daily base to celebrate your successes, learn from your mistakes and move forward with enthusiasm and motivation toward the life you envision for yourself!
