    Why Set Goals

    Why set goals? Every one of us may spend countless hours thinking about our present life and future. Almost everyone wishes to change our lives. Whether it is family life, friendship, career or finances. We all want to change something. The first step is to set goals.

    What are the benefits of goal setting? There are many of them and many reasons for why to set goals. 

    1. You take control of your life

    A goal is like a GPS in life. It gives you direction and helps you choose where to go in life. It makes you envision your ideal future and helps you turn it into reality. When you have achieved the goal, you improve your life and become a better version of yourself.

    2. You focus on the important things

    Goals help us to sort out what is important and what isn't. You will only focus on the things that you want to achieve and spend precious time on them.

    3. You will make good decisions

    Goals help you identify and establish your priorities and make the right choices based on the long-term view of what is most important to you.

    4. You can finish the task efficiently

    You will focus and concentrate your time and energy on the task. This will keep away all the distractions which will make you more efficient.

    5. You will be self-confident and enthusiastic

    When you set a goal and measure the achievement, you are able to see what you have done and what you are capable of. This process of achieving goals gives you confidence, enthusiasm, and a belief in yourself.

    6. You will make progress

    After you have achieved one goal, you will try to achieve higher goals. When you look back you will see all of the progress you have made.

    7. You are closer to success

    Goals are the starting point of success. A good start makes for half the success.
