Imagine shooting skeet, with no skeet, basketball with no goal, fishing in a swimming pool, football with no goal line, leaving for vacation with no destination in mind. Without a target, goal, or planned outcome, you don’t know when you have made an accomplishment. So, how can you go through your day with goals, without knowing what it is you need to accomplish?
Having goals keeps you moving in the right direction. They motivate forward movement. They provide a plan for your bigger picture. Plus, meeting goals provides a great feeling of accomplishment.
Here are a few points about goals:
- Your goals are your responsibility
- A difficult goal is an opportunity to grow
- Striving to reach a goal is a good feeling
- Persistence in working toward a goal pays off
