Follow these ten actions to ensure target attainment. I encouraged my readers to make a resolve to read Leo Tolstoy's greatest work, "War and Peace," at the start of the year. It's one of the goals I set for myself this year, and I'm succeeding admirably. So far, I've finished chapter 1 and have progressed steadily through the rest of the book.
The main character, Pierre Bezukhov, is a young man who lives with his family in Russia. He has two sisters: one old enough to marry, the other a baby. His father is a government official who suffers from ill health. When I first started reading, I wondered what would drive a man to war when there are so many other ways to solve problems. But then I remembered that people will always try to dominate each other for personal gain - it's in our nature as humans. No matter how much progress we make toward peace and harmony, some people will always want to fight others over land, power, or ideas. That's why we need laws and governments to prevent violence against individuals and nations.
After thinking about this, I realized that War and Peace shows us that it is possible to achieve complete goal attainment. In fact, the main character, Pierre, finishes the novel with all of his resolution goals fulfilled. He gets married to an aristocratic girl he doesn't love, but she has money and position, which he wants.
Here's my list, with examples of goals I've already accomplished in bold type. Check out the list of objectives I committed to accomplishing before I died for some motivation: (I've now visited more than 50 countries and given seminars or presentations in 47 of them.) I plan to visit and see the following places: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Thailand, Tunisia, United Kingdom.
Some people make plans and never follow through. I'm not that person. I try to be realistic but also believe that anything is possible if you work hard enough at it. So far, I've already exceeded my expectations for myself by traveling so much and giving speeches in several different countries. I think I can keep this up for at least another 10 years...
My goal is to travel around the world while helping as many people as possible throughout my life. I already have experience working with groups of people, so I know what a challenge and honor it is to speak to large audiences. I also have expertise using computers, which is useful for organizing trips and tours and creating websites. And lastly, I have knowledge of history, which gives me insight into how other civilizations developed their cultures over time.
How to Make Useful Daily Goals
How Do I Create FAST Goals?
Goals provide you both a starting point and a destination to aim for. Written objectives allow you to see where you're heading, what adjustments you need to make, and if you're getting closer to your goal. You must make sacrifices, stay motivated, overcome obstacles, and work on your plans in order to attain your life objectives.
Every plan needs goals. Even the best-laid plans sometimes hit dead ends or take too long to complete, which is when it becomes necessary to redefine your goals. If you don't, then when problems arise or you hit a wall, you'll probably give up rather than continue down a different path.
In psychology, a goal is defined as a high-level objective or purpose that an individual or group strives toward. The American Psychological Association states that goals "are important for motivating individuals to pursue their interests over time and for providing them with a sense of direction and accomplishment after achieving successes."
Goals can be specific, such as winning a race, or they can be more general, such as losing weight or earning a degree. When you set goals, you should always include both short-term and long-term objectives. Short-term objectives are tasks that will help you reach your long-term goals. For example, if your long-term goal is to become a doctor, then working on medical studies is a good way to achieve this goal.
