Here is an interesting approach to setting a goal.
“Write down your goal. Print it. Frame it. Hang it somewhere you will see it. Every day.
Writing down your goal is a powerful thing. Declaring your vision and putting a date on it, as though it will happen (or as Angel would say, like it already did), is even more powerful.
This exercise is about getting total clarity on what you want and why you want it and then declaring that vision for yourself in the next 6 months or whatever date you have in your head, as long as it’s specific. Your goal can be financial, personal, health or career related. It almost doesn’t matter what the vision is. There’s only one rule: It must be something that terrifies you when you say it out loud to someone you respect. At the same time, it should be something that is possible to achieve in the allotted time frame—provided you put in the work. And then you write yourself a new goal once it is completed.” (Howes)
