What Is The Point Of Goals?

The point of goals is to help you focus on a change you want to make.

Making change in your life is the easiest thing to say and the hardest thing to do. Well set goals give you the road-map to achieve the change you want.

Then you can put in the Stepping Stones (check out spurplanners.com if you don't know what Stepping Stones are) to guide you action by action to your goals.

In very simple terms: What is the point of goals? To guide you step by step to live the life you want to lead.

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.

  1. Be Your Own Therapist And Shrink Yourself. Ask yourself why do you really want this goal and what feeling do you hope to get from achieving it.
  2. The Big Picture, Middle Picture, And Small Picture. Know the ultimate goal, the middle steps, and the micro steps needed each day.
  3. Plan Like A Quitter. Plan the method through which you will stay accountable and in touch with your goals throughout the year, knowing there will be inevitable challenges.
