There are many plans for the future.
At least, that’s how I suppose it is for you.
It is the future that wakes me up in the morning, that motivates me to continue.
Although it is told that one needs to be satisfied with the present moment in order to live a happy and satisfied life, knowing that things will be better, will get better makes the present that much better.
Having a plan, so you know what you can look forward to is ideal.
It has been researched by Harvard Business Schools about the results of goal setting:
From the book What they don’t teach you at Harvard Business School by Mark McCormack:
In the book What They Don’t Teach You in the Harvard Business School, Mark McCormack tells a study conducted on students in the 1979 Harvard MBA program. In that year, the students were asked, “Have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?” Only three percent of the graduates had written goals and plans; 13 percent had goals, but they were not in writing; and a whopping 84 percent had no specific goals at all.
Ten years later, the members of the class were interviewed again, and the findings, while somewhat predictable, were nonetheless astonishing. The 13 percent of the class who had goals were earning, on average, twice as much as the 84 percent who had no goals at all. And what about the three percent who had clear, written goals? They were earning, on average, ten times as much as the other 97 percent put together.
It is clear and evident that goal setting is important, and should be something that you have already done; if you haven’t then I suggest you do so right away.
In addition to having a list of goals, it is also great to have a list of priorities.
Once you know, and have your priorities written down on a piece of paper, decision making becomes that much easier. Also, you may be able to stop procrastinating with these exercises.
Just make sure you go back daily to what you have written down so they are ingrained in your subconscious mind.
Once in your subconscious mind, you automatically get that which desire.
What took much effort to attain in the beginning becomes part of who you are.
This is similar to first learning how to ride a bike, at first you need the training wheels, once you get the hang of things, you can remove them and ride your bike with even more freedom.
If you get the chance, share your goals with us, usually attaining your goals becomes easier when others on the same path know what you want and will help you get it faster.
Wishing you success.
