3 Solid Reasons Why You Need To Set Weekly Goals
There’s more to setting goals than just organization. Goal setting can improve your quality of life. Without weekly goals, you have nothing to aim towards. Consciously choosing to set realistic, attainable goals creates a powerful sense of motivation and focus. This goes a long way towards developing success!
By writing down your goals, you are more likely to achieve them. It’s easy to see what you’ve accomplished and what it left to be conquered. Visually seeing your goals on paper make them more real and concrete, instead of just a momentary thought. Goals help us get to where we want to be and achieve our dreams. Planning out what you want to accomplish is something that needs to be practiced in all areas of life—work, family, health, spiritual, etc.
There is a connection between goal setting and self-confidence. When you set goals for yourself, confidence in yourself becomes greater. Physically writing down what your goals are makes it real. Just getting them on paper is half the battle. Doing this will make you more effective at work, at school, and even in your personal life.
It’s an amazing feeling when you have reached your goals. When you have personal projects and accomplish them, how fulfilled do you feel afterwards? Working hard towards something and getting it done is an awesome feeling! Setting goals gives you a purpose, passion, motivation, and something to drive towards. There is that feeling of purpose and waking up with intention and direction.
