1. Goals keep the mind focused. If you don’t want to lose focus and get distracted then set goals. With goals, you tend to hit your target accurately. Most people start life aimlessly through an unmapped and uncharted world, they want things just to happen by chance. This is dangerous because most times they end up not achieving anything through life. Having a focused mind is key and only goals can keep your mind focused.
2. Goals allow you to measure your level of progress. Measurement of progress is possible if only you can set goals. The person that knows where he or she is going is the one that knows if he or she is on the right track or not. Not only will you measure progress, it also guarantees speed. A driver who knows the route to where he/she is going moves faster compared to the one who does not.
3. Goals give you motivation. I remember setting my goals for 2017, every day Ilook at it and each time I do, I am actually motivated to pursue my dreams. If goals are the air needed for success, then it is also the motivation we need to pursue our dreams.
