Set Simple Goals And Achieve Quickly

Set Simple Goals And Achieve Quickly

Let’s break down how easy it really is to set simple goals that you can achieve;

  1. Start fairly small to build momentum and confidence in the process
  2. Your goals must be personal to you
  3. Be clear on the areas of your life you most want to improve
  4. Don’t set too many. Three is usually a good maximum
  5. Use the SMART method to help you define your goal(s).

You are all done. You have set simple goals.

Make Big Goals Easy To Achieve

Write down your big goal – e.g. I want to be fit enough to run 10km. 

Break this down into smaller self contained goals such as;

  • Nutrition
  • Equipment
  • Building stamina

Break each of those goals into simple daily tasks to complete. For building stamina these could be;

  • Week 1: walk 1km everyday
  • Week 2: jog/walk 1km everyday
  • Week 3: jog/walk 2km 5 times a week
  • Week 4: jog (no walking) 2km 5 times a week, and so on

That big goal is now just a series of simple tasks.

I call this 'Stepping Stones'. Try it on any goal.

Anti-goals

Anti-goals represent a palpable set of values and actions that we don’t want to have and do. For example:

  • Not wanting to be buried in debt or living above my means
  • Not wanting to be stuck in the office until midnight
  • Not wanting to be unfit or over a certain weight by 50.

SMART goal-setting framework

Set goals that are:

  • Specific: It will be easier to see what you need to accomplish.
  • Measurable: How will you know when you’ve achieved your goal?
  • Attainable: Or realistic. Is it possible to achieve the goal you’ve set for yourself?
  • Relevant: For businesses, a relevant goal means that it has the potential to impact your business objectives, vision, or values.
  • Time-bound: Give your goal a deadline.
