Do you want to set goals for yourself, but you don't know where to start? Here are three stupidly simple steps to setting goals. (Remember to set goals for yourself that are realistic yet challenging!)
#1) Do an assessment of your life.
Where am I spending my time and energy?
What area of my life needs attention? (Relationships, occupation, school, spirituality?)
How can I spend more time doing those things I am missing in my life?
#2) Do something about it.
Write down your goals in a book.
Write down HOW and WHEN you are going to achieve these goals.
Recruit friends to help you reach your goals.
If you're comfortable, publish those goals on social media in order to get support from family and friends.
Implement your plan of action. (Get off your bum and do it.)
#3) Remember the saying "birds of a feather flock together." If you want success, surround yourself by people who also want to succeed. Finding friends and family who share a common goal will only make you more likely to succeed. (Be careful, though. Sometimes when you put your mind to something you may drift away from good friends who don't share that same interest with you. Keep that in mind!)
Those three steps are all it takes, but sometimes setting goals for yourself can be the easy part. Achieving those goals is another story, so put your mind to it, and go to work!
