How To Set Goals in 3 Easy Steps

So what is the main secret behind setting effective goals? Well the answer may be a bit of a surprise to you, but it’s basically as easy as writing them down. Yes I know it’s not rocket science but you would be amazed to know the number of people I speak to on a daily basis who simply do not have their goals written down.

Think of it like this: A ship sets sail from port with a specific destination, if it encounters stormy waters along the way and gets thrown off course, it can soon get back on track because it knows it’s destination or goal.

Well it’s the same for you and me, how will you know when you are off track if you don’t know where you are going in the first place.  So your goal also helps to track your progress, and helps you to decide if any changes are necessary.

However, not everyone knows how to write down effectively, their life goals.  So if you are having trouble, then by following the 3 simple steps below should help.

How To Set Goals in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1 – Take it One Step at a Time

Write down what you TRULY WANT. Make it BIG, remember this is what you REALLY REALLY desire to happen in your life. So now is the time to dream BIG, and make it SCARY, if it isn’t scary it’s probably not big enough.

Step 2 – Go Through Your Goals Again.

Remember step 1 is only the start, just to help you put things down on paper.  From step 2 onwards, you need to look with more detail at what you want in life.  So take a really close look and constantly ask yourself this question along the way.

Will this take me towards or push me away from my goals?  Now it’s vitally important at this point, that you don’t rush the process.  Go through your answers slowly, one by one,
and begin to eliminate the actions that will hinder, only keep the actions that are inline with your values.

Step 3 – Expand The Important Action Steps

when you are setting your life goals, there will be steps within steps,  that is some of the decisions and steps you take can be broken down further into sub-steps.  So in the final stage of this 3 step process you will be closely examining the steps you have already taken in the previous two, to see if you can expand on any of them.

Now there is a reason for this, and that is because small steps can give you more clarity and therefore allow you to see the bigger picture more clearly. Also a common mistake people make is by confusing an action step with a goal, this can easily produce a feeling of overwhelm when the goal starts to look too big to achieve.  So by breaking it down into smaller actions it allows you to move steadily along the path to your dreams.

Remember this, it’s possible to eat an elephant, but you have to do it one small piece at a time.

So that’s it, by following the simple process I have laid out for you above, you will soon learn how to set goals easily and begin to live the life of your dreams.

Go for it!
