HOW TO SET GOALS


1.  Define the goal.*
2.  Outline the steps needed to achieve it.
3.  Consider possible blocks and ways of dealing with them.
4.  Set deadlines.
*Not every wish can be a goal. For instance, you may wish you could live and stay young forever, but since there's nothing you can do to make that happen, it could never be considered a goal.

In order for something to be a goal:

It has to be important to you, personally.
It has to be within your power to make it happen through your own actions.
It has to be something you have a reasonable chance of achieving.
It must be clearly defined and have a specific plan of action.
