Once Long-Term Goals, Such As Achieving Black Belt Have Been Established, They Must Be Broken down into Intermediate Steps That Aren’t Too Remote.
Without intermediate goals, goal setting is like randomly throwing rocks in a stream, one at a time, in the futile hope of making a bridge to get the other side. In order to build a bridge, you need a series of stones laid one after the other. If the other bank is a long way off, it can be tough to motivate yourself to get started. For this reason, you must give yourself a stepping stone or two to aim for on the way across. These are known as Intermediate Goals.
Setting Your Intermediate Goals.
Set up your intermediate goals approximately halfway toward your long-term goals. For example, if your goal is to have a net worth of £2 million by the time you retire in 20 years, set up an intermediate goal of having £1 million net worth 10 years from now.
Sometimes long-term and even intermediate goals, however clear, seems so far away or overwhelming, they appear to be almost unreachable. Each major goal you strive to achieve consists of hundreds, or maybe even thousands of smaller steps or goals that you must reach in order to arrive at your final destination. For this reason, you need to set Short-Term Goals. This will make the long-term and intermediate goals more manageable and a enable you to reach them faster.
Setting Your Short-Term Goals.
If your long-term goal is to travel around the world, your intermediate goal maybe should be to visit Europe, and your short-term goal could be to see Paris this year? By starting close to home, you can quickly and inexpensively start toward your ultimate goal.
Earning Your Black Belt is a Series of Short-Term Goals.
Each time you earn a new belt, you have another short-term goal, to earn your next belt. As you set your goals to reach your next belt, set a S.M.A.R.T. Goal. When you do this, you will find that you will be able to earn your Black Belt exactly when you planned. Each short-term goal is reached becomes another step up the ladder that leads to your long-term goal. At first, you will dream goal can seem remote, but with each step you take up the ladder, the ultimate prize will become closer and cleared.
