There are things in life that we wish to achieve. If we plan strategically to achieve a goal, we will take on the right mindset to succeed these goals. This reminds me of the story of the four-minute. For fifty years in track and field running a mile in under four minutes was thought to be an impossible feat. In 1956 Roger Bannister achieved this feat. Then suddenly, other athletes began to regularly break that mark. To this day, just under fifteen-hundred people have broken this mark. This demonstrates the nature of any goal. Once a goal is viewed as possible, people have the proper mindset to achieve the goal. The first step towards accomplishing any goal is planning.
We show you how process a goal using the SMART method. This involves setting a Specific goal that is as detailed as possible. We then decide on the best way to Measure this goal and in some cases decide upon milestones along the way. When we set this goal, it should be one that is fully Attainable. The goal must be Realistic meaning that you have all the resources that you need to achieve it. The final aspect is to set a clear Timeline with pre-decided deadlines for each milestone.
