Attitude plays a very big role in setting and achieving your

mind holding you back towards completing your simplest
goals? If there are any part of your behavior that is being
a hindrance or puts your plans into disarray? If you do have
problems in these areas then the immediate thing to do is

doctor or psychiatrist to control your emotions.

Careers are made by good time management practice.
Failing in a career is often attributed to bad time management.
Careers require a lot from an individual which often makes the
career the life of the individual. Plan how far do you want to
go into your career.

Education is key in achieving your goals. If your goals require
you to have a certain kind of degree or require a certain
specialization or demand a certain skill to be developed,
make plans in getting the appropriate education.

Your family should never be left out of your plans. If you are
just starting out then you have to decide if you want to be a
parent or when you want to be a parent. You also have to
know if you really would be a good parent and how well would
you relate to extended family members

Personal financial situations also play a major role in achieving
your goals. Have a realistic goal on how much you really want
to earn. You also must be able to create plans or stages by
which you will be able to reach your earning potential.

Physically gifted individuals may be able to achieve sports
related goals like being in the National Basketball association
or National Football League. Determining your physical capabilities
should be one of your priorities. Physical limitations could however be conquered with proper planning.

dull boy', or something to that effect, is by all means
true down to the last the letter. Giving yourself a little
pleasure: should be included into your plans.

To start achieving your lifetime goals, set a quarter of a
century plan, then break it down to 5 year plans then
break it down again to 1 year plans, then 6 month plans
then monthly plans, then weekly, then daily.

Then create a things-to-do list for the day.

Always review your plans and prepare for changes
that might happen during the day.

The basics of goal settings should not be so difficult once you get to be familiar with them.
