Goal setting is an art. Most people have goals and most people have no idea how to achieve them. Some believe that simply having a positive mind will make all of their dreams come true. While achieving great results requires a certain level of belief, positive thoughts without an action plan are just that - positive thoughts. Research has shown, over and over again, that human brain needs some sort of a written plan with clear expectations and deadlines to be able to stay focused.
Simply writing down what you wish would come true isn’t enough either. First, you need to define your goals. But when you do this, be SMART. Have you heard of SMART goal setting before? If you have, great! If not, you’re in for a treat. This is a proven method to help define goals that are reasonable.
