The OED definition of a goal is \"an aim or a desired result\". That\'s useful, but I prefer the Wikipedia version which defines a goal as \"a specific, intended result of strategy.\" They amount, ultimately to the same thing: the intended achievement of a desired result. The dictionary definition, however, suggests that the goal exists with or without you. Why is this important? I hear some question already. Let me share an example:
Through planning, your major definite purpose is turned into a multi_task project with step_by_step details, clear deadlines and sub_deadlines. The good news is that with practice, you can learn and master this skill. The more you practice, the better you become. Hence, you will be one the most effective and influential people. Always organize your thoughts on a sheet of paper. There can be sub_lists for every list. Until you\'re comfortable with your plan, keep updating and revising it. Any skill can be learned and planning being a skill is not an exception. Over the years, there have been many studies into the reasons why some people achieve more than others. In an effort to determine the common denominator of success. The common denominator was \"action orientation.\" Those who achieve success take immense action. They make their moves very fast and their hands are always full.
