I’ve read quite a few absolutely great articles on goal setting in the past week or so, and would like to present a short list of them for your and my own future reference.
- John Richardson has recently posted two articles on goal setting on his Success Begins Today blog:
- Goals: Create The Gallery of Your Life – in this article you are presented with an idea of making (drawing or composing from someone else’s images and photos) ideal images of your achieved goals. Visualizing your success is a great help on its own, but when you have an image symbolizing this vision it’s even better!
- Paint by Number Goals is a follow-up to the first article, and it gives you options of painting by numbers – there are always easier ways to reach your goals because someone has already drawn the necessary lines and all you have to do is just follow the path.
- Scott H Young has posted an Effective Goal Setting guide, showing how aggressive goal setting could harm by forcing you to lose sight of the bigger picture. He gives advices on when you should go for more goals, and when it’s probably time for you to relax a bit.
- I’ve picked two posts by Steve Pavlina:
- Setting Your Primary Focus – a very useful skill to master is to learn how to identify and set your primary focus.
- Achieving Goals By Improving Your Character – very interesting article on asking yourself questions to identify what you can improve in your character to obtain better results. As usual, Steve gives you all the necessary pointers.
- OnlyOneMike gives you 3 reasons Why You Must Have Goals, which seem more like benefits, not reasons. If you’re looking for an extra motivation before you get started with your goal setting you should definitely read this article.
- Glen from LifeDev thinks Goal Setting Should Be Razor Sharp: they should be clear and simple enough, yet have enough focus to be attainable.
That’s all for now. Not sure if I’m going to be updating this post or will have a separate section created for goal-setting links, but these few links should be enough for today in any case. Hope you find them useful, and if you can thing of some more – please let me know by leaving a comment.
