Reaching Your Dreams Part 1 - Goal Setting

What is a goal? The dictionary defines it as "the place at which a race or a journey is to end". So why set a goal? Well if you don't know where you are going, how can you plan a way to get there?

The first and most important step is discovering what you want the end result to be. Where do you see yourself in a year, five years, or even ten years? Set specific goals, not general ones. If you want to make more money, specify in your goals how much.

The next step is making smaller goals. In order to reach your main goal, where do you need to be in the next month? How about in the next week? Write it down!

After you have your goals in place, be sure to put them in a place where you can see them daily. Dry erase boards work perfect. Write all your short term and long term goals on them, along with your "To-Do" list. (explained in part 2).

What are you waiting for? Set those goals!
