Literature, supporting the effectiveness of proper targeting, is overwhelming. I need to emphasize the words "correct settings". & # 39; A small proportion of people who set goals, did it wrong, and therefore more than half of those who make a new start of the year after three months. One of the biggest problems for people in the goals of the process is that they fail to set measurable goals. For example, take the following list of some of the most popular goals people put.
o Spend more time with family.
o Get in shape
o Have more fun
Proper goal setting requires your goals to be measurable.
These are all great ideas but they are not goals. Remember when you went to family business and someone had set up the rocket. Smooth more and more men went to court while rallied and played around. After a while, gathering becomes boring, inevitably, someone says, "let's play for real." Suddenly the game changes. Now you have people getting in a ready-made situation, location becomes important, people start dive on balls and argue which balls came between them. What changed to make people behave differently? The ball is the same, the court is the same, even the people are the same. What changed was the fact that you are now measuring. Now that you consider points, it matters. At the end of the game it will be a winner and loser.
The principle applies to all areas of life. If you really want to change something then you must measure it. Another way to look at this is what you recommend, focus on, and what you focus on changing. When you participate in a goal setting, you must set goals that you can measure.
Let's look back to the goal & # 39; Spend more time with family. & # 39; How will we measure this? How will we know when we have reached the appropriate time to count "well"? We need to break it down and ask ourselves what looks like this goal? I once had a goal setting where I set a goal that looks like & # 39; spend more time with family. & # 39; My family helped me by defining it for me. This is what they said:
o Turn off the computer between 5:00 and 8:00
o Take my wife on a date every other week.
o Once a week, one in one has one of the kids.
Now I had something I could say. By the end of a few months, I could even give you a percentage of what I had done. My family was not looking for perfection here as an improvement. If I could show my family 80% of the time I had done what they had expected, they would definitely decide to succeed. My family really helped me out the day in my goals.
What about the goal & # 39; Get in shape & # 39; what does this look like? Last I reviewed & # 39; traffic & # 39; was kind but I do not think you're talking about it. If this is one of your goals, you must break it down to something that you can measure. Is there a certain weight you want to achieve, the inch you want to lose, the cholesterol number you want to get, the blood pressure reading you want to lower? After you define which & # 39; Form & # 39; then you are setting some measurable goals that are going to get there. They could be things like exercising for 45 minutes three times a week, or continuing my diet plan every day, or cutting out all junk food. Make sure the goal is as economical as possible.
Now let's look at the last goal of & # 39; Have fun. & # 39; Again, how do you know when you've achieved this? The last time I watched it was nothing like an entertainer that you could catch up with and read. First of all, is it fun for you? Once you've decided to set some targeting to prompt you to do these actions more often. Let's say hanging out with friends is what really makes you jazzed, then set many goals for weeks with friends every month. You may want to put two Saturday days each month for a fun visitor and design one week night as a movie day, where you go and check out the latest movies. Aim in areas like time with friends may seem a bit odd, but if it helps you build new practices, it's worth it.
The secret is to make your goals possible otherwise, they are not real goals in all but good intentions. But if you take time to find a way to measure your goals and create support steps to help you get there, you will not find unbelievable success in your life in no time. Remember that your goal setting must be measurable.
