We are halfway through 2020 and I’m sure you’ve got goals for yourself to achieve for the rest of this year. But, if you haven’t set any goals for yourself as yet, then you are in good company. And even if you have, still keep on reading, you might learn a thing or two. Now, this is a step by step process and it is very easy to follow. Let’s dive right in.
1. Envision yourself in the future.
The first step is to envision yourself in the future. Think about all that you will like to accomplish in the long run. The vision might seem a bit vague to you, but it is very possible to add some structure to it. So, write down what your vision looks like. Get specific as possible and make a note of it all.
2. Research your goals.
Step two requires you to do some research. This allows you to understand what it really takes to accomplish your goals and to also refer to your vision and see what is feasible and what is not for the time frame you have set for yourself.
So, let’s say for example that in the long run, you want to buy a home. You could ask someone that you know already owns a home and maybe ask them for advice and what their process was like of acquiring a home. You may also lookup different mortgages, contact real estate companies, and ask as many questions as you can. Find out as much information as you possibly can.
3. Do an analysis of your current position and set some intermediate goals.
Now that you have an idea of what it is going take to accomplish your goal, you’re going to do a bit of analysing. Take a stock of where you are currently in life considering your goal and all that you would have to do to attain it. In light of that, set some intermediate goals. You could set these goals to be accomplished in six months to a year’s time frame.
4. Set some monthly goals.
You are almost done! Now, for the fourth step you are going to set some goals for the current month or the for the upcoming month. This will depend on what is realistic and feasible for you given the analysis that you conducted in step number three.
5. Set weekly goals.
After you have set your goals for the month, take a look at your week to week schedule and map out what you can reasonably accomplish in a weeks’ time to get you closer to that monthly goal.
6. Set daily goals
And the same procedure applies for your day today. Look at your schedule for the day and see what you can fit in to get a step closer to your weekly goal. When that is done and the time comes around on that day, go and take action on your goal.
And that just about sums it up. The process mimics reverse engineering. So, I start at the end and work my way back to the present.
And remember to be realistic with your goals. Also, don’t forget to submit your plans to God and allow Him to direct your steps.
