Goal setting will help you see what you want to achieve in your life. It will help you separate what’s important from what’s irrelevant. It will keep you motivated. And your accomplishments will build self-confidence for whatever your future goals may be.
Set life time goals for yourself, then break in down into 5 or 10 year goals, then maybe what you want to achieve in 6 months or a year.
Setting goals for yourself, making a plan for accomplishing them will put you ahead of 97% of the people who make no goals and are unhappy with what they have accomplished in their lifetimes. Goal setting is that important!
