Why Are Goals Important?

In 2004 I took a sales job and the boss forced me to write down my goals otherwise I won’t get endorsed for training.

Because I didn’t have a choice, I obeyed my boss.

I didn’t like it at first but writing my goals down changed my life.

About 80% of all my goals have been met.

Here are some examples:

Without goals, your direction isn’t steady.

So every year.

I write down things that I want to happen.

These are my long term goals.

I also set goals for six months and three months and track my progress regularly.

Some tips about writing goals

Be Specific. Write down details. Measurable. Write how many. Write down the price. Actionable. It needs to be something you can do something about. Realistic. Do you know people who’ve done it or heard of people who’ve done it? If that’s the case your goal is realistic. Timebound. Write the deadline. Year or age or date. Remember the first step? Specific.

Be - What kind of person do you want to be? Do - What activities do you want to do? Have - What things would you like to have

Some lessons I’ve learned doing this for more than ten years.

Here’s a template of how I write down my goals.
