Clarify Your Goals for Greater Success

A goal is like a compass. It helps you focus on where you want to go in life and make positive progress to get there. However, it's important to remember that you need clarity in your goals from time to time. You'll want to make it as easy as possible for you to reach them.  

It may take some more time on your part, but when you write out detailed instructions for yourself instead of vague ideas, you have a much better chance at success. Not only do you know exactly what you need to do, but such plans also tend to invigorate you with more enthusiasm.
 
Follow these tips in order to clarify your goals:
 
1.    Figure out your ultimate goal. What, exactly, do you want?
  • Instead of a goal like "I want to be successful," get down to specifics, such as "I want to own my own business which brings in at least $10,000 per month."
2.    Don't be afraid of detail. You make the ultimate decision on what you want. Just don't be afraid to set the details. Avoid goals like "I want to be rich" because there is no detail.
  • How much money do you want to make?
  • Why? What will this money provide for you that you desire?
  • What lifestyle do you want? Cars, homes, ability to travel the world, philanthropy?
  • How do you want to earn this money?
  • When do you want this to happen?
  • How can you prepare for this?
3.    Break up your goals. When you stare at the ultimate goal, it may seem intimidating and unattainable. It's important to break up your main goal into smaller goals. Write out detailed plans about how you'll reach each of the smaller goals.
  • For example, if you want to start your own business, a small goal would be to research your local and federal business laws and register a name.
4.    Give yourself deadlines. It's vital to give yourself deadlines so you know you're making progress towards your goals. Each of your small goals should have an attainable deadline.
  • In the business example above, maybe you'd give yourself a week's time in order to research different business structures and laws.
5.    Keep track. Make detailed notes about what you have done so far. Keeping track of your progress will help you stay organized and on top of your goals.
 
6.    Make alternate plans. Sometimes you won't be able to make the deadline you have set out for yourself, or maybe you'll be unable to follow through with a current plan entirely. It's important to think of alternatives in case certain situations don't work out in your favor. If you already have back up plans in place, you'll save time if you run into snags on the way to your goals.
 
Get Organized
 
Organization can mean keeping all of your detailed plans and journals in a binder with tabs for easy access to your various sets of notes. Alternatively, you may opt to keep your materials organized by using project management software on your computer. Just remember to make backups of your digital information so that you don't lose it.
 
No matter what method you've chosen, determine the details, set small attainable goals that lead toward your ultimate goals, be flexible so you can conquer challenges, and keep track of your progress. Doing these things will bring you ultimate clarity and success.

What the Kaizen Wealth Transformation Challenge has meant to me over the past 49 days is a complete life transformation.  I feel that these past days have been the building of the foundation of my mental fitness.  I have learnt to change time to "me" time.  I have learnt the importance of the five senses.  I have learnt to take control Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-09-18 Getting beyond ‘easy’ Those of us who have made a career of finding out the truth sometimes struggle to get through to people. We have this problem: how do we get across to others the truth we’ve found and turned into systems that anyone can follow? What we’ve learned has taken us far away from what most people are taught to believe. So their first response is disbelief …  “What do you mean, the Formula for Riches® says... Read more...

What has this Kaizen program meant to me?  When I was a child, I was creative, positive and fearless. It was second nature to imagine something and go for it. But, over time, as a result of "society believes" --- some of these “believes” baseless and passed on through generation Read more...

Hier is my opdrag vir die Kaizen uitdaging les 49. Ek glo dat jy dit seker in Engels sou verkies, maar alhoewel ek goed tweetalig is, sal ek nie reg aan die opdrag kan laat geskied as ek dit nie in Afrikaans doen nie. Ek weet jy verkies dat dit nie minder as 400 woorde moet wees nie en indien ek dit nie maak nie, sal dit bloot wees omdat Read more...

To think back 49 days is to realize “that you do not know what you don’t know”!  To now, for the first time in my life, discover the truth and nothing but the truth, is fantastic!  We know that the oldest trick the devil uses, is to take the truth and twist it a little bit – I call it the hamburger effect:  Nice, attractive lies, the twisted truth, covered by some more nice, attractive lies….and we fall for it every time? Read more...
