Steps To Success
- Write down your goals
- Create a vision board
- Share your ambitions with close friends
- Do your research – make a plan
- Revise, re-evaluate and measure progress
Making a list of goals and ambitions in your life that are important will likely put the idea in the forefront of your mind. Thinking about goals you want to reach is only the beginning though. Make a list of goals. Prioritize the list. Check off the most important goals on your list. Choose one to work toward.
When making an action plan to reach a goal get S.M.A.R.T. Smart goals are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-sensitive. If you focus on each of these areas you are sure to create a realistic plan for success. Making the goal something you can actually achieve helps increase your odds of success. Also, setting a specific and time-sensitive goal helps you focus on what you really want and keep you on track with dates and deadlines.
