“Aim for sky, even if you fail you will land among the stars.” When it comes to making goals, we tend to list down all our aspirations as goals. But the reality is that sometimes we lose our momentum and thus we deviate from our main goals. So here are some best of tips on how to achieve most ambitious goals in your life:
Make your goals (S)pecific
Your goals need to be crisp and specific. Let’s suppose you have money goals and you want to be rich. So that’s it? That’s your goal? No that’s a wrong way to interpret your most ambitious dream. To turn your dream a reality make sure you give it a concrete form.
Firstly make sure your goals are specific. Like: “I want to earn $1 Million in next 5 years.” Specified goals give you clarity.
Goals must be (M)eaningful
Goals always have a deep-rooted meaning attached to it. Your aims should be well-defined and meaningful. That meaning basically defines your core purpose for doing it. Like: “John’s mom died of cancer, so his goal is to crack medical exam for top university to become best cancer specialist and to cure the patients diligently.” This clearly shows his goals have some meaning attached to it.
Set goals that are achievable. Don’t set too high or too low goals for yourself. Will an old age on death bed have goal of becoming a millionaire in a day? (YES!! He can become millionaire, only if he won a lottery…HAHAHA) Coming back to normal world, it is very likely that we overestimate our capabilities and achieve high goals. Never do that!
Choose Goals that are (R)elevant
Goals you choose for yourself must be relevant and related to your life, future and your career line.
Set (T)ime-bound goals
Some Goals with long gestation period often demotivate. So the best tip is to start with small daily, weekly or monthly goals and then measure your progress.
(E)valuate your progress
Will you ever study if you know there will no exams after each 3 months? Probably No! Same is with your goals. You will procrastinate and never complete on time if there is no daily, weekly or monthly evaluations. So it is better to evaluate your small progress and correct the mistakes therein, rather than experiencing big flaws in your final results.
(R)e-adjust your approach if needed
“If you ever fail, change the approach of doing it, not the goal!” To achieve most ambitious goals in your life, sometimes you need to change or better to say modify your approach.
With these “SMARTER” tips, you are sure to achieve most ambitious goals in your life. Use these tips and conquer the world.
