How to Set & Accomplish Goals

by @PolarLight

"If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things." ~Albert Einstein 

Without goals people are just floating around aimlessly. And time comes, when it seems life has been wasted. Goal setting and accomplishing same, isn't easy but with the proper mindset and framework, it is possible and definitely worth it.

Here's a 5-step process to successfully Set & Accomplish them:- [Source-  ]

 Making It S.M.A.R.T.E.R

Your goals need to be Sspecific Mmeasurable Aattainable Rrealistic Ttime-bound E- evaluative Rrevisable

 Writing It Down

Having your goals written down on a piece of paper helps clarify and strengthen your intentions. Combining this tangible aspect with the well-formed thoughts in your head, your goals become all the more powerful. It's also best if you post your written goals wherever you can see it frequently. A constant reminder of what you’re aiming for makes it easier to keep your focus and avoid distractions.

 Breaking It Down 

Breaking down your goals means dividing them into easy, simple, and manageable pieces that when done consistently, will slowly but surely form the bigger picture.

You can break down your goals by the following :-

timeframe (ex. set weekly, monthly, and quarterly targets)

frequency (ex. start with twice a week and move up to five times a week), or

progression (ex. start at level 1 and go all the way up to level 10) 

 Holding Yourself Accountable

Since these are your goals, no one else can accomplish them for you so it's up to you to remain focused and disciplined.

If you think it might help, consider posting your goals on social media, sharing them with an accountability partner, or hiring a coach to help guide and support you throughout your process.

  Rewarding Yourself

Having a reward system is beneficial in at least two aspects: first, you recognize that you did a good job (past) and second, you set yourself up to accomplish more since you know you’ll be getting a reward afterwards (future). Rewarding yourself will help reinforce the positive actions you've taken so you can continue doing it.

 Develop Systems and Habits

Unless your goals and actions are in line and unless you execute, review, and improve on a regular basis, your goals will remain unaccomplished.  If, for example, your goal is to exercise regularly in the morning, try setting aside your workout clothes beside your bed before you sleep. You can also get a physical trainer to keep you accountable, keep track of your sessions by maintaining a habit tracker (there are number of free apps on google app store as well), or wake up earlier to make time for your workout.
