After we have discussed methods and techniques that allow us to set goals effectively (Powerful Goal Setting) we can focus on methods that allow us to reach our aims and purposes most easily (Goal Setting). One of the key secrets to reach a goal or ambition is to have a logical plan and to execute it. It is absolutely necessary to have a specific schedule and a long-term vision so that you can take step after step in order to achieve them. You shouldn’t rely on being lucky, because it won’t enable you to approach your desired aspirations.
Here is how you can start to reach your goals, aims and ambitions:
- Set a goal. You can use all the methods and techniques that I have explained in my article: Powerful Goal Setting
- Make sure that your goal is achievable! This is a crucial part, because you’ll lack in motivation once you have set an aim that was too ambitious. This only causes frustration and anger, feelings we absolutely want to avoid, when trying to reach our ambitions. Instead we want to focus on our goals with happiness, joy and the eagerness to reach them.
- Write down a definite plan how you intent to reach your goal. You could note all the tasks you will have to fulfill as well as all the Obstacles that you have to overcome in order to be successful.
- Once you have set up your “action-plan” you can start to pursue your ambitions. Furthermore, it is very important that you will permanently review the progress and eventually change your strategy plan, if you notice that you’ll most likely not reach an aim. These little adjustments are in fact necessary so that you won’t lose track on your ambitions.
- Keep the motivation sustained! You can easily motivate yourself by creating a small list with pictures of all your goals that you pin in front of your desk or elsewhere. It is an astonishing motivation every time you have a look at the list with all your aims.
- Take a little step towards your goal, everyday! You could make a “to-do-list”, where you note all the things that need to be done daily in order to reach your aim. This will ensure that you are motivated and stay focused to your intended goal. These tasks will have highest priority, because they enable you to approach your goal step by step.
