To be realistic, a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work. Goals should be relevant to the direction you want your life and career to take.A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be.
Here’s what you need to remember about the big goals. Some of the hardest jobs you ever accomplished actually seem easy. Why? Because you’re driven by passion and enthusiasm.
That being said, you want to make sure you set goals you can stay passionate and enthusiastic about it. This will give you motivation when you’re jumping obstacles and things get really tough.
You also don’t want to set goals based on trends or fads. If we did that, I would be a dolphin training, film producing, fashion designing school. And I wouldn’t be passionate about a single one of them. You have to give your dreams time to sit or you’ll end up wasting your time. Set widely scattered and inconsistent goals, and you’ll fritter your time – and your life – away.
We can’t have that! See you all tomorrow when we evaluate our goals for the last element of a Smart Goal!
