Attainable _ Set a practical goal that can be reachable. As mentioned before, you will need to be practical about it. Never set a goal that is impossible to achieve nor a goal that you can achieve easily. Set a challenging goal so that you have to make the extra effort to reach it. Realistic _ Always measure your strengths and weaknesses before setting the goal.. Be realistic when you are setting the goals. Do those activities that utilize your strength and delegate those that are your weaknesses.
What is a goal? Hold on just a moment though, what do we mean by a \'goal\'? Everyone at some point in their life has heard that it is important for us to have goals. Goals provide you a map to your future, whether in business, life, and career or indeed sport. It seems obvious, but a football team playing without a goal to aim for is just kicking a ball around. But, other than the more obvious physical goals as the target of a particular game, what exactly is a goal? And how do you know when you have achieved it? Is it even very important to have goals? A sporting goal is a useful analogy though; here we are more interested in the non_sporting variety.
