Ways to find encouragement: Goal setting

Ways to find encouragement series:

Goal setting.

Have a clearly defined target. And make a plan for how you want to reach your target. Break that plan down into small achievable goals. And remember, if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it — so be sure you put things on your list where progress is measurable.

Make sure you have an answer to these questions:

  • What is it I’m trying to do?
  • How am I trying to do it?

Start on your goals now, but think long-term and be patient. Realize that small steps build up over time. They may not seem like much day-in and day-out, but they DO get you to where you want to go.

Always focus on making progress — not excuses. And even if you misstep, you learn something.

When one has clearly defined, measurable goals, it is easier to visualize them happening. And that’s encouraging.
