Shaping Your Future, One Goal at a Time
You’ve probably heard the saying, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” It’s another way of saying that great things often take time to materialize, and that certainly can be true of goal setting. As you strive to tackle your next major life challenge, keep the following in mind:
Write out your goals. Use clear, specific, positive language. Put these in a place where you will be reminded often. The more you make goal setting and review part of your routine, the more goals you will set, pursue, and meet.
Create a reward system. It is hard for any of us to hold out for rewards until we’ve reached the pinnacle of our pursuit. Think of how you will reward yourself along the way as you reach each of your intermediate goals.
Celebrate intermediate goals. Remember the rewards structure you set for yourself. Intermediate goals have a greater probability of attainment because they are smaller and closer to your original behavior than ultimate goals. It helps to preserve motivation by recognizing the accomplishment of intermediate goals. The motivation can also help you reach outside your comfort zone to excel to the next step in your action plan.
Enlist support. In athletic competition, “crowd support” is invigorating and helps competitors when their physical and mental resources grow thin. Such is the case with personal change. Get the support of others to help maintain your energy, drive and focus.
