Behaviors vs. Focus for Set Goals _ You need to realize that when you set goals for yourself, they are outside of your control, so if you spend too much time focusing on your goals, you never achieve them. By contrast, if you focus on your behaviors rather than your goals, then you can achieve your objectives. You alone can see to your behaviors. They are what you can control. So, you have to ignore the part of your goals that you cannot influence and focus on the part that is in your control which is behaviors. Once you focus on your actions, day after day, you begin to learn all the information you need to reach your set goals. When you visualize your goal as already achieved, it puts you in a position where you can focus on a plan to make it. Behaviors are short term based when we set goals; it is usually seven days. So you have to think about what you can do today, tomorrow and this week, write them down and go for it.
We seem to be finding some useful answers here. Don\'t worry so much about writing your goals down, just so long as they\'re SMART. So is that it? No. There\'s a couple of very interesting additional significant statistics in our survey. They deal with the type of goal. Goal focus and personal wealth _ Respondents were asked if they were willing to share their own personal goal, 60% did so and these break down into four main focuses: Career, Lifestyle, Money or Ability. We also asked how satisfied respondents were with their achievement. For those with a Lifestyle goal focus, average wealth is 95ꯠ and \'satisfied\' with their achievement.
