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.
To my knowledge, none of my friends answered \"I wish to be a wage slave pushing paper from one side of a building to another, politically maneuvering myself into a position of power and authority, attending useless meetings each day and commute for 4 hours\" so what went wrong? Well, perhaps it is the goal_setting process.
