When is the last time you set some goals? When is the last time you measured your performance against goals?
Do you have a goal for your career? It doesn't have to be a long term goal, it could be as simple as mastering a new skill, or achieving your next level of promotion.
Do you have a goal for your health? It could be about giving up a bad habit, or creating a new one. Maybe adding some exercise ... walking after supper instead of watching TV, or it could be more adventurous like completing your first marathon!
Do you have a goal for your leisure time? It might be a vacation you would like to take, or a new hobby you want to start.
The thing about goals is that they give you something to "go for".
Once you have that you can put a plan in place to reach your goal.
Setting and meeting goals is a very satisfying feeling and once you have achieved a few you begin to understand that saying ... you can achieve anything you set your mind at!
I have written about goals many time ... here are a couple of blog entries to check out.
