Goal setting worksheets provide accountability and allow you to monitor your success. Life has a lot of distractions and sometimes it is easy to lose sight of what you are working toward, so it is very beneficial to have a way to keep track of your progress. Check your worksheets regularly and mark off any objectives you have successfully reached. Recognizing your accomplishments will boost your self_confidence and motivate you to continue even when faced with setbacks or discouragements.
When you are establishing your goal, always follow the \"SMART\" system. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Specific _ Have a specific plan and a definite goal which can be clearly understood. And once decided, vow to stick to it. Measurable _ The goal you have set should be measurable. For example, if you are in business, your goal should not be to just make it grow in 3 years time. Instead, set your goal something like this _ to make it grow by 40% or more in 3 years, so that at the end of the 3 years you can see actual progress.
