Goal setting worksheets provide time frames and deadlines. Breaking larger goals into smaller sections, determining which steps have to be taken, and setting a completion date is a great formula for success. The best way to turn procrastination into motivation is to assign a deadline. You may even benefit from being accountable to someone who will check to make sure you have met your time frame guidelines. Committing your goals to paper will provide direction, keep you motivated and focused, and increase your self_confidence as you monitor your success along the way. By mixing big dreams with a practical approach you can bring clarity and focus to your goals that will keep you motivated and increase your chance of staying committed no matter what obstacles you may face.
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.
