Goal Setting and Planning are essential to success
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
~ Larry Elder
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
~ C.S. Lewis
Goal Setting & Planning empowers us to Live Our Lives in the Way We Wish
By setting sharp, clearly defined goals, we can measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals. We can observe progress in what might previously have seemed an endless toil. By setting goals then using plans to reach those goals, we will raise our self-confidence. The process of achieving goals and seeing our achievements gives us confidence that we will be able to achieve higher and more difficult goals. Thus it follows that we should begin with goals that are "realistic" in the sense that if we create unachievable goals we could become discouraged.
Plans are essential to our goals. Think of it like a journey. You make the goal to go to a distant city, then you make plans, a map of how to get to your destination. Plans for your goals are the same. You set a goal then you make a plan or an outline of how to reach that goal.
