Gather Stars For Your Success

You want to be successful? OK, first you should gather some stars. In other words you have to set up some goals. Setting goals is vital to accomplishing your daily to long-term agenda. By directing your attention to a specific area, you are able to use different strategies to get the results you want. Goal setting is a key component in leadership, team-building, and overall professional productiveness. What about this questions:

  • Do you create a daily agenda?
  • Do you complete the goals you set out to accomplish?
  • Do you check the progress of your long-term goals?
  • Do you write down the goals you have set?
  • Do you create a step-by-step process to achieving long-term goals?
If the answer of any of the above questions is no, may be you are in trouble. In case that you don't have any long term goals - set one now. The creation of step-by-step process for achieving your long-term goals is equivalent to have a road map to the location you want to visit. Take this example: "I want to have $1 000 000: First, I will graduate school. After that I'm taking an IT diploma. Next becoming a specialist in my sphere. At the end starting my own business". Well this is a good long-term goal and it has clear steps for achieving. In it's own way every sub step could be separated in more detailed parts.

You need to work out what is really important to you, so you can decide what is really your goal. Describes what you want to accomplish with as much detail as possible. At the end, after gathering a few stars - your goals, you will have clarity and everything will be easier.
