Your self_esteem, awareness, ability to communicate, energy and responsibility can all be amplified by your use of goal setting. Developing and maintaining our self_esteem is one of the challenges every one faces sooner or later. Confidence comes from knowing that we can successfully complete what we set out to do. It results from experience, the experience of meeting our goals effectively. We must have some way to evaluate an experience, some way to know whether it was valuable or not. This is where goal_setting comes in. Setting realistic goals, working toward them and finally achieving them are superb learning experiences. We feel good about ourselves when we meet our goals. Which in turn makes it easier for us to reach our next goals, and so the effect soon snow_balls.
Define your Goals and be Specific. You need to write down exactly what your goals for your design business are. It is simply not enough to say that you want to grow your business. You need to be very specific. State that you want to grow your business by 20%. You can even go as far as defining the different segments that you deal with and setting goals for each of these. If, for example, you love working with commercial clients but find individual clients frustrating, consider setting a goal to increase the work that you would prefer to do. At this point, do not censor the goals. According to Jim Rohn, we should set as many as 50 goals. This may initially be a little daunting so start out by setting 5┦ goals. Make sure that these are goals that you actually want to achieve for yourself.
