Set Your Goals Setting goals is important because it helps all of us to focus our thinking and plan our activities. Goals also help motivate us to action and provide a standard against which to measure our progress and eventual success. The best way to begin is by making a list of the things you would like to have and the things you would like to do. This list can include big items you may have longed to own or achieve, as well as smaller things you would like to have extra money or time for, such as: independence, business of your own, spending money for clothes, more time with your family, better home, travelling, financial flexibility, education/college for your children/grandchildren, holiday home, charity donations, a new car. Whatever your particular goals and aspirations may be, you are one step closer to achieving them when you write them down on an action planner. Your list should also include the date by which you would like to achieve that goal. Someone once said that ‘goals are just aspirations with a deadline’, and they were right. By giving our goals a deadline, we automatically work harder towards their realisation. Once your goals are firmly established in your mind, you should do something every day that will bring you closer to each goal.
