What is goal setting? Inadvertently, or deliberately, people asking us when young \"what do you want to be...\" have set us on a process of goal_setting. They are asking us to peer in our mind\'s eye into the distant future and describe our goal. With little worldly experience, we most likely think of people we admire that through their job demonstrate what is valuable to our young minds. What would you like to achieve in X years that having achieved it will satisfy your personal values? Would you ask a ten year old that question? No? It\'s unlikely that they would understand _ but with the massive leaps in education and increasing pressure on children to know a whole lot more than the current generation of mature adults, they may well be asking you that question and be surprised if you can\'t answer it. I digress, but we are effectively asking that when we say \"what would you like to be...\"
There are two final things that you will need to, and they are learning from your mistakes and giving yourself a reward for achieving a goal. We all make mistakes, and it is likely that you will too. So when you make a mistake, learn your lesson from it and move on. Apply the acquired knowledge and work toward not making the same mistake again. This is the only way you can get better. And lastly, you should never forget to give yourself a reward for attaining a goal. You have done all the hard work and so you deserve the reward. Besides, the reward will push you to greater heights and inspire you to keep performing.
