6 reasons to set Goals!

The clocks go forward this Easter weekend in the UK marking the start of British summer time! I always take the opportunity to review the first 3 months of the year and find out where I am in relation to the goals I set in January.

Did you set any goals in January? If the answer is Yes, fantastic! If the answer is No, take the opportunity now to set your goals for the rest of the year!

6 Reasons to set Goals!

Goals breathe life into your days.

Goals- aligned with your values, get you to your greatness.

Goal setting promotes personal growth.

Where your focus goes- your energy flows.

What gets measured gets improved.

By setting goals- you have a framework and a decision matrix to drive better results.

Extract from “Alice through the Looking Glass

  A conversation with Alice and the Cheshire Cat.

Would you tell me please, which way I ought to go from here?”

“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to”- said the Cat

      “I don’t much care where” said Alice, “so long as I get somewhere”

          “Then it does not matter which way you go” – said the Cat

Q. What does this mean to us?

“The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score.” – Bill Copeland

If you don’t know where you are going how do you know when you have got there? That’s ultimately what goal setting is all about. Everything in this world is created twice: First – creation in your mind, followed by the manifestation in reality. Without the mental creation, there will be no physical creation. When you set a goal, you already accomplish the first creation. When you don’t have goals, you are floating around every day.

Get laser focused and achieve your goals! If you have set them at the beginning of the year take the time to review; are you still on track? If you did not set goals in January, what are you waiting for?  Get them set now!
