Resolve to set some goals today.

Resolve to set some goals today.SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
Looking back, I guess this should have been the first post, considering that this blog is all about making little daily resolutions that will leave you feeling like a better person at the end of the day. I think we have all hear about why setting goals is important, but just in case you have been living on another planet and have never turned on the TV at some point and seen some motivational speaker tattling about it- let me inform you as the resident GURU on this blog as to why you should set goals…

What is a goal? Do we really have to go there? For the sake of a few, I will venture there- a goal is a dream, ambition or place you want to achieve or get to in your life. We all have dreams, be it the sort that everyone knows about like “I have to quit my job! I hate it! It stinks” or the sort that you keep buried deep in your heart, for fear of being ridiculed or discouraged, like to “win the Comrades Marathon in South Africa”

The problem with life is- everyone knows what they want, but few people ever move towards what they want, because either they are lazy and would rather complain about life or because… they don’t know how to move towards their dreams… this is where goal setting comes in. Setting goals;

1. Forces you to think about where it is exactly that you want to go and in the process, you might discover that- you don’t really want to go where you think you want to go.
2. It helps you plan out, how you will get to where you want to be from where you are.
3. It will reveal to you if you have the necessary elements to achieve what you want to achieve and if you don’t then maybe you can find another goal to pursue OR find a way to get the necessary elements to achieve the goal.
4. Just doing the above things will build up your self-esteem and courage.
5. It is a big fat reminder that you are supposed to be doing something or going somewhere… something about making conscious decisions to d something makes them stick in your mind and nag you at the worst times… like a month after New Year’s :-)

There Ladies and gentlemen, are my reasons for setting goals and I have to admit they are very good ones. I’m sorry, but this blog has found me in a slightly vain temperament today, so let me not torture you anymore and recommend to you a few books of choice that should make the goal setting process less mystical than it seems for the average mortal.

The Power of Focus and Think and grow rich (Even if you don’t want to be rich [there are actually people on earth that don’t want this] you can still use the goal setting method for another goals)

Resolve to set some goals today. Trust me, you will feel like a better person at the end of the day, there is something empowering about setting goals and in way starting to take charge of your life once more.
