The only way to achieve goals is if you set them first. It’s much like driving to a destination. If you don’t determine where you are going, how are you going to get there?
If you aren’t committed to setting goals, then you can wander around aimlessly in your actions, believing that you are getting closer to the goals you want when in reality, you are wasting time and energy that could be better utilized if you set the goal ahead of time.
- • Setting the goal before attempting to achieve it is important because it gives you a clear idea of what actions and steps you’ll need to take in order to achieve that goal.
• Setting a goal can help you to break down the goal into more manageable steps and see what actions you need to take in order to achieve that goal.
Many goals that seem impossible to achieve on the surface are actually quite doable when you actually set the goal and really look at what steps are needed to achieve it.
