Setting goals is important for everyone in every field and in all walks of life.  But setting goals can be daunting.  What are good goals?  Should i have financial goals?  Emotional goals?  Concrete goals?  How do I measure goals?  How do i track my goals?  There are many questions and points of confusion in goal setting.  I have found many inspirational and helpful online resources for goal setting.  some of the most informative and even life changing are the basic blog posts about setting and achieving goals.  Below are the ten best blog posts i have found about setting goals.

“Ensure that you are defining goals congruent with your most important values. Values are your subconscious drivers that motivate you to do or not do anything.”

7 Pitfalls of Goal Setting

“Thou Shall Take Purposeful Action.  Success is not a spectator sport – achievement demands action. You cannot expect to arrive at success without having made the trip.”

“Mistake #2- Setting goals that are too vague. When you set goals that are not specific you end up disillusioned and disappointed.”

3 Deadly Mistakes

“Don’t hold back. Make a promise, not based on knowing how to achieve your goal, but on your desire to make it real. If you have to know how ahead of time, you’ll never take the leap.”

Setting Unreasonable Goals

Goal Setting Pitfalls and Benefits

“I’m setting myself goals this year because I want to become successful, I don’t want to become a success. To me, becoming a success implies that I’ve stopped and I’ve reached a peak in some area of my life. I want to be successful in all areas of my life and that is something which is ongoing.”

Personal Approach to Goal Setting

“I’ve noticed a tendency to have vague, fuzzy goals. The kind that look like they just woke up and haven’t shaved in weeks. Goals need hard, clean lines to them. Otherwise they’re as functional as an unemployed guy holding out for a management job for 10 years. They just don’t work!”

Setting Better Goals

“If your vibe isn’t congruent with achieving your goal then no amount of goal setting will be effective until you change your vibe”

Interesting Perspective on Goal Setting

Good luck with your goals! But you don’t need luck if you are determined and take action! :-)
