Specific, Time-based, Goals

It’s the time of the year when people want more success in their life and start setting goals. Frankly, it doesn’t matter if you achieve your goal. The mere act of setting a goal will drive you closer to what you want - but you need to be careful:

1) Goals should be painfully specific. I say “painfully” because most people find difficulty in choosing a particular outcome. They don’t want to limit their options. But isn’t that why you set goals?

2) Goals should be outcome-based and not time-oriented. Keep working toward your goal until you reach it, not when your self-imposed time limit runs out. 

3) Long-term goals should not be a variation of your short-term goals. If you want to make a million dollars a year, setting a goal to increase your income by 100k a year may make sense. In reality, your mindset is ten percent of what you need, and it will take you ten times longer to reach your goal.

There’s no need to achieve one goal before going for another. Decide what you want and get it today. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
