Types of Goals – How do we go about setting goals?
There are several types to goals: immediate, short- range, and long range. There are several areas to set goals in: spiritual, personal, family, business, career, social, financial, etc. How do we go about setting goals?
Ask God to guide you – don't underestimate what God wants to do for you.
Determine exactly what you want – people don't reach goals because they are too fuzzy.
You must write it out – it is not enough to have it in your mind.
Do you have unaccomplished goals? Have you said in the past that you were going to do a certain thing, only to find that it has been more than a year now? Have you ever gotten distracted by friends, family, vacations, work, discouragements, depression, and just plain old procrastination. If so, it's time to get it right!!! In order to accomplish our goals, we must set aside time to work on our goals. This can be exciting. Using myself for example, I make the morning time my time to give to the Lord towards my goals. And because I need to get up at
At 7:00 am., I make sure that I am in bed by 11:00 pm. The night before. I see goal – setting as a tool to weed out the nonsense in my life. I am so grateful to God for this. Let's remember the 2 key elements to being successful goal achievers:
SPIRITUAL WELLNESS – put God first in your goal-setting
PHYSICAL & EMOTIONAL WELLNESS- vitality is key in doing well, one can not be productive if his health prohibits him from doing so.
BE NOT ONLY, GOAL SETTERS – BE GOAL ACHIEVERS!
