Goal Setting: Let’s All Achieve

The key to maintain motivation is to surround yourself with highly motivated people.  Set attainable, short terms goals that will eventually produce the end result you are working for.  Invest time in research to make sure you are using proper techniques and technology to properly assist and organize.  If you have the ability to network and consult other professionals, please do.  Social media has made networking inexpensive and accessible, use it to your advantage.

Be sure that your goals are not all business.  It is healthy to have leisure goals.  Join a league, play some ball.  This will keep you healthy and sociable.  Exercise so you can indulge in delicious new restaurants.  Travel and experience different cultures. Hehe, these are my hobbies, but you get the picture.

Make sure your goals are  S.M.A.R.T. Goals should be:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound

When developing your goals, please consider the following questions.

What do I want out of life?

What will it take to get there?

How much will it cost?

What are my funding options?

Who is available to assist me throughout my endeavors?

You don’t have to do it alone, network and find some like-minded people that may be willing to invest in the same dream.  More involvement leads to being accountable to others.  This may improve your motivation.

Get moving, Go Further!
