  10. 10. ACHIEVING GOALS <ul><li>With the experience of having achieved this goal, review the rest of your goal plans: </li></ul><ul><li>If you achieved the goal too easily, make your next goals harder. </li></ul><ul><li>If the goal took a dispiriting length of time to achieve, make the next goals a little easier. </li></ul><ul><li>If you learned something that would lead you to change other goals, do so. </li></ul><ul><li>If you noticed a deficit in your skills despite achieving the goal, decide whether to set goals to fix this. </li></ul>
