Going For Gold With Goals
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many of us have an idea of what we'd do with a successful business providing the funds necessary to have all the "toys" people buy when that level of financial freedom is reached. The ability to live that lifestyle always seems years away; after I get my degree and work a few years, or after the kids are off in college. Well, it doesn't have to be in ten years or even five. With having a Goals Chart that is actively updated; results will happen right away and that sometimes sinking feeling of "it's way in the future" will be replaced by a positive mindset that is a welcome achievement in itself!

One of the best feelings is the sense of achievement and it doesn't have to be a far off event somewhere out of reach. Having a Goals Chart with active updating is designed for fun along the way to the long-term goal achievements. Why not just write down my goals list and check them off as they are completed?

What Next?

Ever feel let down after a big accomplishment, like "What's next?" This is one of the biggest reasons we stray from a disciplined goal oriented mindset, because keeping the goals we started with a month ago need new goals to replace the short-term ones that have been accomplished. Without having a new goal to replace the time the conquered goal took; may portray the mid and long-term goals as mountains instead of mole hills.

So, a Goals Chart with Short, Mid, and Long-Term Goals in a possible spreadsheet format, or in Word which can be saved an updated daily at times is highly recommended. If using the computer seems to daunting then manually writing them down may bring even more inspiration!:)

Short-Term

Short-Term is from present to less than five years with daily goals as the focus. Having a calendar for daily goals will help immensely in many areas: motivation, positive habits development, sense of achievement, desire to accomplish more. Short-Term goals are the foundation for the more physical aspects of mid and long-term goals like debt reduction and financial gain.

Mid-Term

Mid-Term is anywhere from three to five years, or three to ten. That is a huge span to list goals for! I suggest having a calendar in place for mid-term as well because short-term goals will be accomplished; possibly affecting your entire timeline.

Long-Term

These are the big daddy goals from ten years on like opening a second store, or buying your third property, or being debt free. Once these are reached it is highly important to have second and third "replacement goals" so that feeling of achievement can be maintained.

We've all heard about goal setting and I've listed the basics for having fun along the way with the main focus on the Goals Chart as being active; especially at the beginning where short-term goals are being accomplished. It's very important to adjust the Short, Mid, and Long-Term goals with new ones as the present goals get accomplished. It makes for an adventure rather than extra work and piece of mind and confidence will certainly follow; helping you and those around you have fun along the way to success!
