Have you ever wanted to:

  • lose weight?

  • save money?

  • get a promotion?

  • learn a new skill?

  • pass a test?

  • spend more time with family?

These are all examples of short and long-term goals that you can set for self-motivation and growth!

Importance Of Goal Setting

Success or happiness rarely falls into a person's lap. So when we want to achieve something, we set a goal. And you'll find the most success when you make your goals SMART!

SMART Goals are

Specific for effective planning

Measurable and based on evidence that progress has been made

Attainable and within reach

Relevant and aligned with our values and objectives

Time Sensitive with a deadline for achievement

Short-term and Long-term goals will help you achieve success! A short-term goal is set to happen in the near future. A long-term goal is usually set to happen within a year or more. Set short-term goals to reach a long-term goal.

For example, suppose your New Year's Resolution goal is to run a marathon at the end of the year in December. This is your long-term goal. Break your goal into steps. Set another goal to be able to run a half-marathon in July. In order to reach your goal, start out with small short-term goals. Increase your time and mileage per week until you reach the desired mileage for a marathon-26.22 miles, which is your long-term goal.
