How to Set Right Goals for Life
One of the most popular questions at the interviews is, “How do you see yourself five years down the line?” Well, let alone five years, most of the people do not know what they will be doing in the next five minutes. If you are someone who always finds setting the goals and working according to it, you may want to use some tips. But do remember that everyone has his or her own style of living. You don’t necessary have to set goals to become something in life.
The biggest reason why people are not able to follow the goals they have set is because they really don’t know what they want out of life. So to set the goals, first figure out what do you really want from the bottom of your heart? For this, write down at least 20 dreams of your life. While you may think writing 20 dreams is pretty easy, when you will actually start writing, you will get stuck at 7th or 8th. The first 5 dreams are very common for all. What most of us want (not necessarily dream of) is a car, a house, or a big bank balance.
With this process, you will get to explore the remotest corners of your brain where your true dreams had been cast. When you will put your brain to work, it will bring out your real dreams.
Once you know what you really want out of life, you will need to find a way to start working towards the goals. So, with each goal, set a deadline. You may not be able to meet the deadline always, but at least you would know how much more efforts you need.
