How to set goals:

1. specific-

If you want to become an engineer or doctor you have to specify your terms to proceed and what type of outcome you will get. There should be a pain point to do something what challenges did you overcome and how it teaches you to become the best version of yourself.

In your mind there should be questions such as-

  • What are my limitations ?
  • How can it achieve this what should be the plan ?
  • Why you want to achieve a goal? What you are trying to prove the world?

I’m not here to demotivate you but people are lazy even I am lazy but I set target in that day or month what I’m trying to achieve from measuring my tasks completion.

Therefore, consider this-

As every goal need time to succeed it you need a certain time frame that you are trying to achieve this goal. Every goal need time frame to measure tracking process. From time management and project management you’ll attain in time to tell yourself a deadline for remaining work.
