Set Goals To Help You To Focus

Why do career advisors, successful entrepreneurs and athletes harp on about setting goals? Firstly, set goals to help you to focus.  Secondly, if you don’t know where you want to head, how are you going to get there? This is a great post written by a management and career consultant, V Pradeep Kumar, for the Decan Herald.  I have excerpted a few favourite points.

Set Goals To Help You To Focus

Set smart goals

Use the power of your imagination as well as skillful planning to set your professional goals.

Integrate goals

It’s a good strategy to have multiple goals in different areas such as your professional career, personal life, financial and asset creation, health and fitness. These goals in different aspects of life should complement each other and not contradict them.

Why is goal setting so important?

Life is all about making the right choices and goal setting is the process of making those choices. Goals enable you to focus, act as strong motivators and improve results. Follow your dream; but be sure you love the profession. You may start with a job; turn that job into a passionate career.

Career success is a destination you want to reach. Let the goals be specific like setting a needle in your compass. From then on, the compass knows only one point, faithfully guiding you through the journey ahead. Look forward to the destination, but appreciate and enjoy the journey.

No matter where you are in life, whether you’re still at school, finishing university, half way through your career, or even in retirement, if you haven’t already done so, set goals to help you to focus.  Without your destination in mind, you’ll be like a lost puppy in a jungle not knowing which way to turn, or how you’re going to get there, because it’ll all be mystery!


Focus On Goal To Avoid Stress

Goal setting is an excellent way to focus and avoid stress according to Nandita Rajan who recently wrote an article for students in The Times Of India. Shut yourself out from the rest of the world, focus on your end goal, eat decent food, get enough sleep, drink enough fluids and take regular breaks. Write your goals down too, then break them down, work backwards and work in manageable periods of time.

Once you start focusing on the book you will realize that all other external factors are falling by the wayside, and that includes stress. Take a break at the point when you realize that whatever you are reading is not being comprehended by your brain.

It’s far too easy to find yourself immersed in work, forgetting just why you’re doing it, whether you’re studying, or setting up a business, or working 10 hours a day in an office. Everything you do should be goal-orientated or everything you do will become meaningless. If you forget why you’re putting in all these hours, take a step back and remind yourself of your end goal. Focus on that goal, and avoid stress.
