What would happen if you ran a race without knowing where the finish line was located? You might run in the wrong direction. Or you might never finish the race.
A goal is like a finish line. It's something you work toward. If you don't have a goal, you may not know where you're going or your actions may take you in the wrong direction.
A goal is something you decide to do. If you set goals for yourself, then you'll know where you're going and you'll work hard to get there. Having goals sets you on the path to make your dreams happen.
There are four steps to setting a goal:
- Identify your goal.
- Make a plan to reach your goal.
- Put your plan in motion.
- Decide if your plan is working.
