Planning is essential in everything a person does. But it is of utmost importance to plan when someone wants to achieve a specific goal. The goal can be personal or career oriented, it can be a short term goal or a long term one. But the important thing is to plan carefully. The first step in achieving a goal is to plan accordingly. Goal planning is a very important step in making dreams come true. The best thing to do is to note down the goal or goals on a piece of paper. The next thing one should do is to note down all the things he can do in achieving the goal. He can divide the steps into short term ones and long term ones.
If someone’s ultimate goal is to become a fashion designer, then he should plan accordingly. He should find out from where he can get the proper education on fashion designing. This could be his first step and the next step will involve a more detailed planning. Once he finds out about an institution from where he can get the training, he should then find out if he has the funds needed to get in the course. If he doesn’t have the required money, he will need to find out if he is eligible for a scholarship or a student loan. It will take a few years to achieve the ultimate goal but all this planning will make it possible to achieve the goals he had in mind.
A goal is much easier to achieve if it a realistic one. If a person wants to be a circus worker at the age of 35, it is quite impossible, as this type of training begins at a very early age. But if his goal is to become a famous chef after the age of 35, it is possible but he will have to get some training to improve his cooking skills. The steps that are needed to achieve any goal should also be easy to follow. For example if a person works from 9 to 5 everyday and his goal is to lose weight, it would be possible only if he sets an easy target for himself. If he thinks that he will be able to exercise for two hours every day after coming from work, it will be difficult to follow this plan. Instead if he decides to go for a walk for 30 min, 3 or 4 times a week, it is quiet achievable.
