Goals are extremely important when you want to make something of yourself. They help you phase out your life, allowing you to achieve milestones while keeping in mind the bigger picture.
They also allow you to measure your progress, and to use that progress as motivation to help you achieve even more goals.
Let’s find out more about what kind of goal you should set for yourself.
HOW SHOULD I SET GOALS FOR MYSELF?
First, you need to picture what kind of life you want for yourself. Imagine the big picture for yourself. Then, break it into smaller parts, and then focus on achieving those.

Set goals for the things to want to achieve in your life. They can be anything that you want. There are various types of lifetime goals that you can set for the different aspects of your life.
- Career – What level do you want to reach in your career?
- Financial – How much do you want to earn?
- Education – What knowledge do you want to gain?
- Family – What kind of family do you want to have?
You can also set goals for your physical health, for pleasure, attitude, etc.
These smaller goals can serve as a blueprint for achieving your lifetime goal.
For example, if your lifetime goal is to start your own company, set smaller goals like branding, funding, registration, etc.
You can also map out these smaller goals by time, such as creating a one-year plan, a six-month plan, or a one-month plan.
To help set a goal that is the most effective helping you actualize the life you have for yourself, make sure it is:
- S – Specific (or Significant)
- M – Measurable (or Meaningful)
- A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented)
- R – Relevant (or Rewarding)
- T – Time-bound (or Trackable)
So, instead of setting “read more books” as a goal, the SMARTer goal would be “read 20 books by the end of the month.”
