Got Goals ?! WHAT IT TAKES ?
It is very important to have Smart GOALS, when it comes to change & improving yourself.
Your goals must be SPECIFIC: I will do “A” in the situation “B” and observe the following “C” changes.
Your goals must be MESAURABLE: You and others must be able to see the progress you are making on a regular basis.
Your goals must be ACHIEVABLE: They must be well within your capability to perform.
Your goals must be RELEVANT: This means that they must be something that you and others really want to have happen.
Your goals must be TIME-LIMITED: You need to have both short-term and long-term benefits in sight.
Make sure to Conduct an analysis of what potential obstacles might get in the way and create a game plan of how to anticipate & address obstacles, just in case.
Make sure to always Reward yourself, build in some payoffs for your small steps and the progress you have made. Always remember to put negative self blaming aside from your train of thoughts.
