Achievement and Accomplishment - Getting What You Want

The most powerful skill necessary to attain success in any endeavor is goal setting. Goals provide a sense of direction to keep us focused on the most important activities. Since success can be defined as the progressive realization of worthwhile, predetermined personal goals the process is designed to move us from wish or hope to fulfillment. Goals create a magnetic attraction that draws us toward reaching them. Writing the goals forces you to clarify and crystallize your thinking. In other words, we act on the goal and the goal acts on us. Goals save time, help measure progress, produce motivation, stimulate visualization and form a basis for action. Studies show that the difference in success between those who write their goals and those who keep them in their head is dramatic. However goal setting was not taught in school and most people do not know how to do it. Learning how to write goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and tangible will make an enormous difference in every aspect of your life.
