Set Sound Goals

You can’t work without goals. Can you? I have been reminding my children always on this matter. Can’t blame me for being a good father. But fuzzy goals are as bad as no goals at all. When setting goals, aim for these three characteristics:

  1. Clear, Can two or more people understand your goal and agree on the look, feel and function of the desired outcome? Don’t leave room for interpretation.
  2. Reasonable. Make sure the goal is challenging but possible to accomplish within a reasonable time frame.
  3. Important. Does the goal describe an outcome yourself really needs? Is it something that you should spend valuable time on?

Setting goals in life is a great essence in achieving what you want. It’s good to set small goals and see the targets been achieved. Perhaps slowly but surely all the goals you set will be rewarded over a period of time.

The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant and kind.
W. Somerset Maugham
