So for my very first Friday Five 2.0, I'm going to give you (drum roll please) 5 Reasons To Set Goals.
Let's face it, if you are anything like me, without a goal (and a plan), things just don't happen.
So here are 5 reasons to set goals.
Without A Goal Where Are You Headed?
I have found that if I set a goal it gives me a sense of direction. Otherwise, I tend to flounder. I'll start this way, go back, turn, go another way, and then another way. Without a clear direction, I get lost (not just physically but mentally). With a goal, I have a direction where I am headed. Setting a goal helps me to also ...
Having a clear goal (did you notice that I said clear? That's right. I feel that goals need to be specific and not generic.) helps me to stay on track. Because I know where I am going (my end result) it helps me to stay focused on the task at hand.
Setting Goals Can Be Fun
Yes, I am serious. It can be fun to put a goal out there, and then work hard for it. It's such a great sense of accomplishment to watch hard work pay off and obtain your goals.
Make Positive Changes
I don't believe that we should strive for perfection. I don't. But I think being the best version of you (whatever that is) that you can be is a great thing to strive for. Setting a goal is a way to make positive changes - whether you want to break a habit or create a habit. Positive change is good, and a goal can help accomplish that.
Goal Setting Can Make Us Dig Deep
This has two meanings. First we have to dig deep within ourselves to create those goals. We have to move past fears and insecurities to even say that we will 'go for it'. And once we make that decision, then we have to dig deep to reach those goals.
So there you have it, Five Reasons To Set Goals.
What are your goals that you have set and will be setting for yourself?
