There are boundaries and there are boundaries. There are types of goals that are loosely worded, poorly organized and with an indefinite schedule. There are boundaries with clear statements, exact plans and more deadlines. What type are you heading for?
Here are three essentials to ensure that all you need to do is succeed and not your goals.
- Clear Description . Write your goal in simple words that clearly state what it is. Explain in full that when you emphasize it, you know exactly what you are aiming for. If there is a new car for example, check down the model, model, color, enhancement and even the subject of the seat. Make it real in your mind. If there is a better relationship, explain what this ideal situation will be, the joy you get, the relaxation you will feel, and the proximity you will both enjoy. Allow yourself to experience it spiritually.
- Actual deadline . Your goal must have a temporary attachment to it. At first, it may be difficult to know exactly how long it will take to get there, so you may be out days, but it's less important than having a date to target. If you do not find it difficult to judge the speed of your progress. However, it is equally important that the deadline is reached. You might think of the idea that you might be like an athlete in 6 weeks, but if you have not used school since then, it may be beyond your reach. Try to match your time schedule to your ability, but do not be afraid to stretch yourself a bit.
- Work Program . Finally, your goal is only a destination. Your plan is a roadmap that will get you there. Break everything you need to do, down to a manageable lump that can be completed in a few hours or a day. Create a logical, step-by-step plan out of these chapters, until you've filled the gap between now and your targeted goal. Tap this on your wall or keep it with you at all times and refer to it every day so you can not only see what your next task is but you can be proud of how far you've come.
Make sure your goal is with these three important things and you give you much more chance of success.
