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.
Goal_setting is a process by which we choose our intended result, decide what we want to achieve in the longer_term AND determine HOW we are going to attain the goal (i.e., the strategy). Therein lies the problem for many people in regard to goal_setting... the process necessarily includes the strategy to achieve the goal. When relatives with kind intentions ask \"what do you want to be...\" the strategy they advise to achieve whatever you said, invariably refers back to the need to study hard, be a good child, don\'t answer back and above all... \"Eat your greens!\" As you get older, the advice may become more specific and even, more useful. You begin to discover which areas of knowledge and skill you most enjoy and are better equipped to clarify your personal goal as you become increasingly aware of what is important to you. Goal_setting for your career, life and business is strongly advocated and endorsed in hundreds of books and papers and articles. Most emphasize the importance of writing your goals down as part of the goal_setting process.
