Learning how to write personal goals will help you figure out what you want to do with your life and what you want to achieve. If you don't know where to begin, the following information can be used as a guideline to get you started on your path to not only setting personal goals, but achieving them as well.
1.Consider lifetime (long-term) goals you want to set. Goals should be achievable, yet challenging.
2.Create a plan of smaller (short-term) goals that you can achieve within a certain time. For example, think about things that you want to do in the next five years.
3.Make a daily "To Do" list. This small list can be a positive reminder for you to prioritize your goals, and helps you stay focused on the larger goals you are working at achieving.
- You can extend or shorten goal deadlines if you feel you might not make a goal. However, if it's taking too long or not taking enough time to complete a goal, consider reevaluating the goal you set; it might be too difficult to achieve at the time, or too easy.
- Writing personal goals can be a rewarding experience, but so can achieving your goals. Once you achieve a goal, reward yourself! Nothing provides more motivation for you to move on to the next goal on your list.
