A powerful tool that can make the difference between being successful or not being successful in any given situation in life or in business is the process of physically writing down your goals and objectives on a piece of paper. There is just something about putting what is very important to you in writing. This process makes your intentions clear and gives you the roadmap to know what you want to accomplish. One other step needs to be done and that includes writing specific tasks that are measurable that are required to making this particular goal become a reality. Not only do you need to write down your goals, but you need a list of activities to go along with each goal so you will have the steps required to making them become a reality. Ensuring that your goals and objectives are realistic is also very important. When unrealistic goals are set, it may discourage you from your ultimate course in life because the bar is set too high and may be unreachable at the given time that you write them down. An example of an unrealistic goal may be that you want your business to make $1 million in sales in 2 weeks and you just started your business. A more realistic goal for a new business would be to make at least 2 sales in the 2 weeks. Set the goals to where they are attainable and you can measure them based on the specific steps associated with that particular goal. Set aside some time to focus your attention on really making your goals and objectives a priority. Having a guide to your life and career can truly be the game changer you need to reach your ultimate destination in life.
