Achieving any goal is difficult, but what is more difficult is to live knowing that you have not accomplished a goal. For that reason, you can implement strategies to move, even if it is slowly, and get to the place that you want to reach.
Say for example you want to lose weight or be more active. You can achieve this goal by being specific in what you are trying to accomplish. A long-term goal of losing 50 pounds seems to be a daunting task, yet if you structure your goal to lose a few pounds a week, say 2 pounds a week, you will feel more empowered to achieve that.
Another way to reach your short-term goals is by focusing on the goal completely. Yes, everyone has responsibilities and yes, our world is a world where time is practically nonexistent due to all of our other responsibilities and duties. Yet, finding those 15-30 minutes to work on yourself is invaluable because you are giving yourself the respect that you deserve by spending time doing the things that will bring you the most joy – reaching your goals.
Of course, the SMART Goal strategy allows you to have a definite plan, a step-by-step approach where you are able to plan out what you are going to do and the reasons why you will be setting those goals. That allows you to achieve goals – long-term or short-term goals.
Generally speaking, a short-term goal is a goal that takes less than a year to reach. Keeping this in mind allows you to draft goals within that time frame as those goals will be easier to achieve than a goal that is planned for 2 – 3 years or even longer.
Keeping this in mind, consider improving your short-term goals with these tips:
Finally, have the confidence and desire to make things happen. You are special and unique and nobody can stop you on your goal-setting journey.
