The Right Place For Your Goal Setting

Author: Administrator
Just like for companies, goal setting for your own life is very important for success. When many folks try goal setting for the first time, it can be an overwhelming task. Sometimes, this activity cannot be done in one sitting. It may require a few sessions. You might find that you will have to do some soul searching to figure out what goals you really want to accomplish in life. This will determine what success means for you. Then you need to plan out your strategies to achieve this success.

All of this can be a lot of work so you need to be in the right place for your planning. You need to be in a place where you can really focus on your thoughts, just like studying. For me, one of the best places to do this is during a long flight, say at least two hours or more. If the in-flight movie is boring and if the other passengers sitting around are not very social, then I'm trapped. There's nothing do to but listen to the plane's white noise. So it's an ideal place for me to work on my planning because I can really focus in such an environment. Of course, I can't book a long flight every time I want to work on my personal goal setting. But next time you're on a long flight, you might want to do some of this type of activity or at least review your goals.

Sometimes, I can't do this activity at home either. I have little dogs that can be very distracting and I just can't get any work done that requires heavy-duty thinking. If they are not barking at something they see out the window, then they are tapping my arm with their paws to get my attention while I'm working. Although this might seem like a really cute thing to see, it is very annoying when trying to plan and set goals which are so important.

When faced with constant interruptions, I have to leave the house and go to a private study room at a local library where I always manage to get good work done. You might have young children, a needy spouse or a chatty roommate. They can all be distractions that you don't need when planning your goals. You will have to figure out for yourself where the best planning environment is for you.

Don't short change yourself by trying to plan out your success in an unsuitable environment. You don't want to do a quick mediocre job with such an important task that will have such a huge impact on your life. You want to make the best use of your time as possible to help you succeed. You also want to have a pretty clear mind when you attempt any such activity. Go to a place where you can put in an honest brain sweat. The proper goal setting and planning are crucial activities that are considered essential for overall success in life.
