Describe exactly what is to be achieved. It is important to understand that when any goal is reached something will have changed. It may be you have an extra qualification, a new kitchen or moved to a new office.
Describe in detail the changes that are expected so that you can measure when your goal has been reached.
Can you physically achieve your goal? What new skills will you need to learn? Do you have sufficient funds, resources, skill set and time?
Step back, discuss your goal with trusted friends, family or colleagues. Is the goal you are setting yourself really relevant. Describe the benefits, who will actually benefit and are they really worth the effort required?
Are you being realistic? It may be achievable but what is the cost, could your time and effort be better spent elsewhere? Galahad.cloud includes an Eisenhower Priority Matrix to help you work out where to put your efforts.
You need a clearly defined timeline. Establish how long it will take, set your start and finish dates. Are you allowing enough time? Too much time can result in loss of focus and becoming distracted by other activities. Build in a degree of urgency but not so much, as to make it stressful. It is a fine balance which you need to get right.
