Get some excitement by setting—and reaching—your goals

Goals are something that everyone thinks about, whether they’re actively being worked on or not. But, without a plan, achieving your dreams is nearly impossible. Having set actions you will take to make your goals come to life will help you reach them faster than you ever thought possible.


Part of this stems from the concept that the intention of setting goals can help generate some serious incentive. “Setting goals gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation,” notes Robin Bahl, CEO of Custom Benefit Consultants. “It helps you organize your time and [direct your] resources toward items that are important to you both personally and professionally.”


To get started, the recommends defining what it is that you want, setting quantifiable action items that you can work toward, committing to deadlines you create to complete these action items, sharing your goals with others and, finally, rewarding yourself once you’ve found success.

First, focus on just one professional and one personal goal at a time. This way, you’re not stretching yourself too thin. In addition, make sure to determine the “why” behind your goal—and keep redefining it as time goes on to stay on track. Committing to your desires publically or printing them out to put up where you can see them all the time can also help ensure you get where you want to.


According to Bahl, some of the best ways to reach your goals are to aim for things that you really want, create an exciting system to track your progress, review and alter your objectives regularly, set short-term targets to help you along the way and immerse yourself completely in these goals. She also says that it’s important to choose a goal that allows you to experience life. So get out there and start living.
