A goal is something that you desire in your life, that you are willing to take action in order to reach. Your goal may be to get a better job, lose weight, go back to school, or start a family. Your chances of success will be greater if you write down your goals. Here are 3 reasons why writing down your goals is so important:
Writing down your goals shows you are serious and that these goals are important to you. There may be obstacles that stand in your way, but you are willing to do what it takes to achieve your goals.
Writing down your goals allows you to get very specific about what your goals are, how you’re going to reach them, and what timetable is involved. Who do you need to talk to? What action steps do you need to take?
Working towards your goals can be hard work, and you may feel discouraged and ready to give up. Reviewing your written goals can help you see how far you have come and what still needs to be done. Each step of progress is a reason to celebrate. Yes, it may be slow, but you are on the right path.
So get started today and get those goals on paper. It doesn’t have to be perfect, because you can always refine your goals along the way.
