Let\'s talk about how to do this and where people make mistakes with the goal setting process, because I\'ve made these mistakes, and I still make these mistakes, even though I\'ve studied this stuff. Let\'s take a look at that. There are a lot of people who work hard at achieving a goal, but when they eventually achieve such goals, they do not derive any joy or satisfaction from achieving such goals. The main reason for this is that what you have accomplished is not suitable for your inner values. This shouldn\'t happen to you. Clarification of your values is an act you need to perform in each area of your life.
We may not consciously beware that we are always setting goals, but whether we are setting goals consciously or unconsciously we are still setting goals. Anytime we decide or make a decision to do something we have set a goal to do it. My wife and I have while we were together set a goal to go out every Friday night for a couple of hours for our special time together. We called it our date night. It would be and is very beneficial for every married couple to have a date night even after they are a married couple. Dating is not just for those who are single and looking it is for those who have found their life mate (soul mate) as well. Dating after marriage keeps the relationship fresh and new, as well as it keeps those home fires burning.
