Write Your Goals - Till you know the target how can you hit it. Write your goals. What do you want to achieve? Write your goals in your personal diary (you can also create a personal file in a computer) or on a small card. Chief goals of your life should not be more than two or three. If it is only one than it will be much easier for your to focus all your energy on it. Too many big goals will only create confusion in your mind.
Set Realistic Goals - If everybody starts wishing to become the richest person of the world it will be unrealistic. Know your resources and capabilities and set realistic goals. Analise everything - your personality, your circumstances, your resources, only then you will be able to set realistic goals. Your should be able to achieve them.
It Should Suit Your Talent - The goals should be in harmony with your unique talent. Suppose you have a talent for negotiations and you set a goal to become a big engineer it will be foolish. Choose a goal in which you have to negotiate with others like property dealing, sale-purchase of automobiles, marketing or any other business transactions. And if you have talent for acting or writing you canít set a goal to become a businessman. If you set a goal that is unsuitable to your basic personality you will always be in conflict and may not get much success.
Set a Time Frame - Set a time frame to achieve your goals. Without giving deadline to a work we often scatter our energy and the work may linger on for days, months and sometimes for years. When you prepare a 'to do' list also write a deadline with every task - definite time and date when the work is to be finished. Then try your best to complete that work before the deadline. If you are able to complete a big task before the deadline award your efforts with a gift or tour.
Short Jumps - Chief goal should always be divided into yearly and monthly goals. Then it should further be divided into weekly and daily tasks. Always keep in mind that small drops of water can fill a bucket. Construction of a magnificent building starts with a small brick. Take a small jump today and you can cover a distance of a thousand miles.
Delegate - As you make progress you need other people who can share your work load. One person can't do everything. So wise delegation can make remarkable difference between success and failure. If you can't do a certain work you should appoint a person who can do that. Rule of right work to right person must be followed. Every successful person has a good team whom he delegates his work to achieve his goals.
Evaluate Every Week - Once a week you need to evaluate your work. Take the analysis in written - the work you did, the time you wasted, the deadlines you missed etc. It will help you to improve your next working schedule.
Control Emotions - Human is an emotional animal and under the grip of strong emotions man often forgets his real goal. The energy of your mind will waste if it is scattered to different directions. So chain your emotions in discipline and focus to your goal.
Work Very Hard - Most of the successful people in the world work very hard. Without hard work and long hours of disciplined work it will be difficult for you to face competition or move fast.
Celebrate Your Success - Every achievement in life must be celebrated. Celebrate it in the way you like. Also reward yourself with a gift. When you work hard to get victory, to hit the target or to succeed in your mission you deserve to celebrate. Celebration refreshes our mind and prepares us for our next challenging job.
But Don't be Over-joyed - Although it is good to celebrate success yet you must not lose the sight of your real aim. Many people get so intoxicated with their initial success that they soon start stumbling down. So keep it under check.
