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.
Specific _ Your goal must be specific. You must have a crystal clear picture of what you expect to achieve. The mind thinks in pictures or images. Therefore, you must have a clear image of what it is that you desire. For example, you have the goal of becoming rich and retiring early from the job that you hate. Good luck with that. You will never get that because it\'s way to vague. Your goal may start out that way _ as a dream or an idea. In order to actually get there you must crystallize it into a specific vision that you can see clearly in your mind. This vague goal could be specified like this.....I am devoting at least 10 hrs every week to building a network marketing business with company XYZ to earn at least บꯠ per month in residual income. This will allow me to retire by Dec. 31st 2012.
