Setting Your Goal _ The Process _ Of course even before you are ready to set your goals, you should know what you are trying to achieve. This is the essential first step. The kind of goal you are setting for yourself will naturally depend on this. And not just that, you must also have a clear idea about how far in the future you want to achieve these goals. Broadly, goals could be either \"long term\" or \"short term\". Of course you can have both a long term as well as a short term goals. A good approach could be to have a long term goal and a clear road map to achieve this. In other words, you can set various short term goals that will take you progressively towards your bigger long term goal.
Timely _ There should always be an end date. For instance, if you just want to grow the business without setting a time, you would keep working at it endlessly, and reach nowhere. So set a time within which you want to achieve the defined results. Once you have come this far, you will need to prioritize the goals according to the significance or impact on the final outcome. This is particularly relevant if you have set several goals. You must decide which goals are more important to you, and this decision should be based on how important the final outcome is. The more important the outcome, the higher should be the priority.
