As said by Jeff Rich, “A goal without a plan is just a wish”. You might have heard people talk about their goals and how important goal setting is. You might even have snickered at how much they overthink. But trust me, goal setting is a crucial step at actually attaining your dreams. Goals give meaning to your life; they motivate you to get out of your bed and do something. Knowing what you want to do in life right away is a rare trait. Most people need to sit and give a solid amount of thought as to what they want to achieve. Here are some of the reasons why you should start setting your goals right now:

    1. 1. Provides a sense of direction

Realizing your dreams in an early stage in life can give you a head start and let you stay ahead of this rat race. A written goal is a reflection of your deepest desires and wishes. It gives you a sense of where you should go next and in what direction should you move. Think of it as a to-do list for life.
Not everything might go according to your plan, but you will attain some sense of control. It will make you more determined and motivate you to do something. And what is a life without anything to live for?

    1. 2. Saves Time

Sitting and thinking after every step will waste your precious time. It will also intimidate you with the mountain size of things left to be done. So instead, write your goals down on a piece of paper or note it somewhere so you are aware of the next step. Tiny steps will help you conquer this giant mountain.
So, break your goals into tiny steps and accomplish them one at a time. Time is of the essence. Don’t waste it in doing something unproductive.

    1. 3. Tracks Your Progress

Goal setting can also act as a coach to track your progress. You have a fixed benchmark or target to aim at. You can measure your development from the start line and the distance to your goals you have covered so far.
It also allows you to re-evaluate your mistakes so you avoid them in the future. If you doing something and it is working, how are supposed to know if you don’t have a record?

    1. 4. Ensures That You Don’t Miss Out On Anything

In this busy, fast-paced it, it is only natural to miss out a few opportunities. But what if you miss out on something crucial? Instead of repenting and beating yourself up later, just take all the measures needed to avoid this ordeal. Goal setting will help you cover everything you want to do.
It will provide you a satisfactory feeling of doing something worthwhile in life. There is so much new and exciting happening in life. Grab every aspect of it and live your life to the fullest!

    1. 5. Helps You Stay Honest To Yourself

Momentarily you might want to do something but maybe that is not the true reflection of your passion. Acting on instincts might deter you from your career path. To help you stay honest you yourself and focused, goal setting can have a significant impact.

    1. 6. Helps You Understand Your Strengths And Leverage Them

Knowing your true self is an art very few have mastered. Understanding your strengths and utilizing them to their full potential guarantee you a successful career. Goal setting can help you with knowing your plus points and leveraging them in your life. Knowing you have done the best you could is a great feeling which can only be attained through accomplishing your goals.
