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.
Set Goals that are Achievable Yet Stretch You _ \"You have to set goals that are almost out of reach. If you set a goal that is attainable without much work or thought, you are stuck with something below your true talent and potential.\" _ Steve Garvey So many times we do one of two things while setting goals: we either set our goals too high or too low; rarely do we set them just right. This element of goal setting can be extremely difficult, especially without much experience using this process. By setting our goals too low we never reach our full potential to what we can accomplish and never live a self_fulfilling life. By setting our goals too high we risk becoming discouraged because the goal is so far out of reach.
