Do you know what is the difference between a dream and a goal? With a good plan, you can get anything you want. It's nice to dream, right? Well, it's still better to get those dreams. In order for it to really happen and dreams do not remain only in your mind, you have to learn to set simple and effective goals that will motivate you to move forward and you can turn your dreams into reality. Next, we are going to give you some tips that will allow you to change your life ... for the better.

Smart goals

If you want to set goals to follow these steps:
  • Specific objectives: make sure that your objectives are not unattainable ideas. Instead, have specific ideas of what you are trying to do and where you are trying to reach. The reason for this is those specific objectives give you direction, while vague objectives leave you without direction.
  • Measurable objectives: Similarly, you must ensure that there is some way to measure your objectives to know when you are making progress and when you are not. By making a goal measurable, you help make sure you know when you've reached it and can celebrate it. And who doesn't like that?
  • Achievable objectives: You can say that you want to win the Nobel Prize in Economics, but wouldn't it be better to start by earning a degree in the field first? After all, it's not like you can't set new goals when you achieve what you have! What's more, if the objectives are unattainable, all you will end up doing is discourage yourself, and from there it is a short way to give up.
  • Relevant objectives: you will also have to make sure that the objectives really guide you in the direction you want to take. Sure, fame is nice, but does it really help you marry the person of your dreams? So make sure they are in line with what you want from life.
  • Goals with a time limit: give yourself deadlines, if you don't do it then you will leave everything for tomorrow and that tomorrow will be every day ... The obvious problem with that is that we all run out of tomorrow, and if that happens, the only thing that we have left are regrets.

Worry about your goals

You must make sure that the objectives you have are the ones that really interest you. There are many ways you can end up setting goals that are not really that important to you. Maybe they are important to people close to you, or maybe society makes you think they should be your goals.

The point is that it is very difficult to motivate yourself with 'should'. Instead, be sure to point to 'want' instead. In this way, you will ensure that when things get difficult, instead of entering into an existential crisis about what you really want, you can continue.

Set sub-goals

Once you have achieved your great goals, set goals or milestones on the way to what you will work for. These will serve as steps to make sure you stay on target.  They will also give you something to focus on and a way to measure how you are doing.

Write and share

Writing your goals can really be of great help. First of all, simply writing it will feel that you are engaging with them. Second, to the write is much more likely to notice gaps in the line of time, logic and general setting of objectives, which otherwise might have remained unaddressed. In this way, it will serve to make your goals more attainable and more concrete.

By showing your goals to someone you trust, you can not only get their comments but also motivate yourself.  After all, now you have not only committed to these goals in your own head but also out loud, which means that if you fail, you not only have to deal with your own disappointment but also with that of another person. This can be an immensely useful motivator.

And of course ... go ahead and don't give up! You can do it, you just have to want it.
