Easy Goal Setting

Written by Theresa Frasch

Are you forever trying to accomplish things but never seeming to get them done? You know you should set some goals but you don't know how to get started? Here is an easy way for you to set goals. Each step is represented by a letter formrepparttar word GOALS.

The GET Step

Decide what it is you want to get. Do you want to get a new car? A degree? Better at something? Do you want to get away from it all on a vacation? Decide what it is you want to get and write it down. Make a list of allrepparttar 131452 things you’d like to do and be, a list of allrepparttar 131453 places you want to go, andrepparttar 131454 things you want to accomplish.


Organize your plan. First develop a plan by listing every step that it will take to get you what you want. One easy way of doing this is to imagine yourself as having already attained your goal. Then “look back” and make note of allrepparttar 131455 steps it took you to get there. Don’t worry aboutrepparttar 131456 order yet; just list as many steps as you can think of.

Now, organize your plan by prioritizing your list. Make a list ofrepparttar 131457 order that will best accomplish your goal. For instance, if your goal is to get to Hawaii you would need to planrepparttar 131458 dates before you make hotel reservations. You would need to have a plan for savingrepparttar 131459 money before you booked your plane. If some ofrepparttar 131460 items on your list look overwhelming, break them down into smaller pieces. If you want to write a book, break it down. Start withrepparttar 131461 table of contents. Write a chapter a month. Write four pages per day. Make each task manageable.


Take some action every day to move you toward your goals. Every week write downrepparttar 131462 three or four things that are most important to do to move you toward your goals and plan when to do them. Then do them.

Competition against others is an illusion. Winning is not what brings us deep inner soul satisfaction. Winning is not what makes us a good or bad human being. Beingrepparttar best or first at what you do does not necessarily make you a winner or make you successful.

Inside each of us there is a competition going on that we may not even know exists.

In this life there is only 1 competition that is worth getting involved in and becoming aware of. That isrepparttar 131450 competition between your true self and your ego. Your ego is always trying to overcomerepparttar 131451 true self. The ego needs recognition, praise, to be important to others. The egos’ desire for competition with others is a means to prove itself worthy. The ego is affected by others perception of it. The ego feels a need to measure up to others standards.

There is one arena thatrepparttar 131452 ego is not eager to enter however.

Our ego is afraid to go head to head withrepparttar 131453 true self, as it isrepparttar 131454 higher self. Thus,repparttar 131455 ego focuses outward on others. The true self isrepparttar 131456 inner man. The true self isrepparttar 131457 soul and spirit of each of us. The desire ofrepparttar 131458 true self is to know who it is, what its purpose is. The true self wishes to embrace Truth at all costs. The true extraordinary self can be shoved aside byrepparttar 131459 egos desire to shine and not be found out as ordinary. The ego does not know humility and meekness. It is important torepparttar 131460 ego to be thought well of by others. Butrepparttar 131461 ego will always remain just ordinary because it is built on false perceptions ofrepparttar 131462 self.
