Setting Achievable Goals For Your Future

Spread the love

A goal is something you hope to achieve or someone you want to be. However a mere expectation without any plan or timeline to achieve it, will just be a wish. It is not a goal if and when you do not have a timeline; such a timeless wish will only set you for a failure.

What to do after setting a goal?

Now that you have set a goal, an identifiable, achievable wish, it is on you to proceed with them and put those into action. Do not expect anyone to come and tell you what to do with the goals; to tell that you need to work on them. And because of that, you may get used to procrastinating things, that is, to postpone whatever you are supposed to do next. So if you want to start those carpentry projects Brisbane you need to learn the trade, cost the equipment, seek a suitable place to have a workshop, hire a person or two if possible and work on accomplishing being a carpenter. It is you who must put you on to the track and keep you in it; your dream of becoming that someone is only yours, so it is your own responsibility to go ahead with owning up to it and taking the ropes. 

Time management

Time is a slippery thing. You may not realize it but sometimes when you turn back, a long, long time has passed and you haven’t actually attained any goals. Sometimes, you have not even started it. As the great poet Omar Khayyam said in his poem Rubaiyat, “… time is slipping underneath our Feet”. So do not prioritize what is in your schedule, but instead schedule what must be your priorities. With the myriad of things you have to do, perhaps, family, friends, other studies etc. – you may find it very difficult to concentrate and do things as to get closer to your goal. Therefore you need to realize what are important and what are not, and then schedule them so that you won’t miss doing the important things. Family and home are important but it is also important that you achieve your dreams.

It’s the journey that matters

Of course you must have a destination. But what will teach you a lot of things, is the journey and not the destination per se. That course of action which is your journey is actually part of your dream; without it you are not going to get anywhere. Hence even when you feel beaten up tired and about to give up, do not do so, because at the end you will get a rewarding experience and fulfillment of the dream. If your life goal is to, for example, be employed, and you prefer better carpentry employment there will be a long and winding road to get there. Becoming a skilled worker as such means you can have your own business too. So you can see how the journey, at the end, rewards in many ways. Do not back out of setting goals or converting your dreams to achievable goals. If you do not do it today someone else can steal your dreams.
