“5 Reasons Why Goal Setting is Important!”
1. Goals give you FOCUS!
You can have all of the intention and potential in the world, but without focus, none of that matters! Just like sunlight can’t burn through anything without a magnifying glass focusing it, you can’t achieve anything unless a goal is focusing your effort. Because at the end of the day, goals are what give you direction in life. No goals, no direction Diva!
2. Goals Allow You to Measure Progress!
Not meeting your goals is not the end of the world. Progress NOT perfection should be your mantra during this process. My goal writing process looks something like this:
Success all starts with a GOAL!
3. Goals Keep You Locked In and Undistracted
By setting goals you give yourself mental boundaries. When you have a certain end point (smaller waist, pounds loss) in mind, you are more aware of certain distractions and are more inclined to stay focused on your goal. For example, when I set a goal to workout 5 times in 1 week, I immediately setup mental boundaries, and guard myself against anything that will prevent me from achieving that goal!
“One half of knowing what you want, is knowing what you must give up before you get it!”
4. Goals Help You Overcome Procrastination
When you set a goal for yourself you make yourself accountable to finish the task. This is in complete contrast with when you do things based on a whim and it doesn’t matter whether you complete them or not. Goals tend to stick in your mind and if not completed they give you a “Shoot! I was supposed to do _____ today!” reminder. These reminders in the back of your head help you to overcome procrastination and laziness.But keep in mind, setting long term goals actually promote procrastination. So whenever you have a long term goal, break it down into smaller sequential goals Click To Tweet
5. Goals Give You Motivation!
The root of all motivation or inspiration you have ever felt in your entire life are goals. Goal setting provides you the foundation for your drive. By making a goal, you give yourself a concrete endpoint to aim for and get excited about. It gives you something to focus on and put 110% of your effort into and this focus is what develops motivation!
