How to Write Goals so You Can Reach Them

Setting goals is crucial for success whether it be in your business, health, at work, or organization in the household. So, get out a pen and paper and take notes so that YOU can start implementing these tricks today!
Make a list of 5-10 short-term goals, mid-term goals, and long-term goals.  For example, your short-term goal may be something as simple as following up with three people this week, taking your dog for a walk a few times a week, or getting started on a budget.
Mid-term goals are usually six months out and although it seems far away, it’s important to take baby steps to ensure you reach that goal.  Your mid-term goals may include taking your family on a vacation this summer that you’ve never been able to do, setting aside a few more hours to do family activities and not be so consumed with work, or getting that promotion that you’ve been waiting for so patiently.  Again, don’t wait!  Get started on taking baby steps today! Quotes are a great way to get some inspiration when creating your goal lists and can allow you to refer back to those quotes when you feel discouraged.
Now, you’re long term goals are just as crucial as your short-term goals and many people lose sight of this step because it’s extremely far away.  As we know however, life goes quickly and before we know it, the kids are graduating high school or going to their first school dance.  Yikes! Your long-term goals can be as soon as one year away or as far as five years!  It doesn’t matter.  Just choose what works for you and write down how you will take steps to achieve that goal.
So, the big question is….Are YOU going to do what it takes to achieve those goals?  Don’t be a statistic and lose sight of what you’re working towards.  Create your vision, stick with it, and always be improving yourself to push yourself to your best potential.
