Setting goals for yourself is very important . You must have something to work towards in order to please your conscious . Goals give you that motivation so you can work to fulfill you potential .
Goals can come in many different forms . Some goals help you work towards bigger goals . Short term goals help you accomplish your long term goals . One of my short term goals is to become more motivated . Motivation is the drive that gets you going . My motivation is low at this time , therefore I am not too productive with my spare time .
Being more active is another short term goal of mine . I have always been very active and lately I have become lazy . Being active is important to me . When I am my activity level is high I can accomplish more and manage my time more wisely . Becoming more active will help me accomplish other goals I have set for myself .
Another short term goal I have set for myself will have long term affects . I recently got a new job that requires me to learn a lot about computers . Since I am a Computer Science major , this will help me in my studies as well in my future job search . I will have a degree and experience .
Short term goals are often more easily obtained then long term goals . Long term goals can take years even a full life time to accomplish . Though they are usually more difficult to accomplish , they are usually more significant . The accumulation of short term goals helps you accomplish the long term goals .
After finishing school , I hope to get a good job , with advancement opportunities , that I enjoy doing . I do not want to settle for a decent job . I want to have an excellent career that will last for a long time .
Over the last several years I have made many bad decisions with my money . Over the next couple of years I plan to have paid those debts off and to think more wisely with my money . I wish this could be a short term goal but , unfortunately , this will take a while .
When you have something you are striving for , you must pace yourself . Setting goals is a means to an end . Short term goals help you accomplish the long term goals . So setting goals for yourself is a very good way to accomplish the impossible .
