It
is
a
new
year
and
virtually
everyone
is
reved
up
and
excited
about
the
changes
to
be
made,
and
new
things
to
be
accomplished. A lot of the time, we start out the year
with good intentions that play out as targets, resolutions,
ambitions and most importantly, as goals.
You may wonder why we often go through the year and
then realise along the line that one way or the other, we
have lost sight of the goals.
Sometimes it is not because we didn’t set Smart Goals as
we have been taught, but the obstacles that we come
across as a result of stretching oneself towards the
direction of ones goals are usually unplanned and
sometimes come as a surprise.
It is one thing to set smart goals, it is quite another to
stay true to the goals – irrespective of the price to be
paid for the goals to be accomplished.
I am assuming you already know what S.M.A.R.T Goals
are; but let’s do a quick recap from the popular Brian
Tracy’s advice on Goals! A Smart Goal is Specific,
Measurable, A ttainable, Realistic and T ime-bound. No
matter how S.M.A.R.T your goals are, they may be
difficult to be attain if you don’t follow the key principles
that govern achievement and success.
Now let’s go through the top four reasons those SMART
Goals haven’t worked in the past years.
Inconsistency
Have you ever set a goal only to change it when there is
a perceived higher goal? Although this is not bad in
itself, there’s a problem when it begins to result into loss
of focus. It makes it seem like you don’t know exactly
what you want. Another thing is that many people make
the mistake of changing their goals entirely once they
encounter challenges in the course of their goal
attainment, only to realise later that those challenges re-
surface irrespective of what goal it is. These
inconsistencies could also be as a result of setting goals
that are don’t align with your values, strengths and
purpose. What this does, is to weigh you down and
leave you completely demotivated. An average person with
average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most
brilliant genius in our society – if that person has clear,
focused goals – Brian Tracy.
Demotivation
When you are not in tune with your set goals, the first
thing that begins to happen is that you become less
motivated to work towards the goal. Motivation is the
desire or drive to do something. It is the crucial element
in setting and attaining goals. Now the question is, can
you set smart goals that are in line with your values,
desire to see its attainment but still be demotivated? The
answer is, yes. The reason we become demotivated can
also be because we have been overwhelmed by our goals
at some point, but suddenly began to give up. Those
goals we were once excited about now seem far fetched.
There are two major factors that contributes to
demotivation. Internal factors such as lack of self-belief,
confidence and assurance. Also, external factors include:
lack of support and destructive criticism from significant
others. These factors outrightly demotivate us and make
us second guess the very goals we were once excited
about.
Time Management
A lot of people are lacking in this area which dictates the
time-frame of a smart goal. The journey of a thousand
mile begins with a step, so every long and short term
goals should be revisited on a daily basis in form of To-
Dos. The attainment of a goal is not when the year has
ended, but begins every moment of the day. We must be
careful not to let our current appetites steal away any
chance we might have for a future feast – Jim Rohn . A
lot of people wait for a perfect timing before they start
working towards the goals and fail to neglect the fact
that even tiny efforts, made daily, makes the huge
difference.
Indiscipline
I am yet to meet any successful person who does not
have self discipline as a learned attribute. It is at the core
of their being. We all desire to have fun, wake up
anytime we like, buy the most expensive and random
things, watch our favourite TV programs as we wish and
so on, but all these would only slow us down and make
us lose focus. The ability to consciously practise delayed
gratification, to say no to unproductive things and
activities, would increase the pace by which our goal is
realised. Old habits die hard. This is why you should
develop self discipline. The reason we set clear and
written goals is so that we can consciously discipline
ourselves till our ambition, target and desire is fulfilled. I
quite agree with Sidney Howard when he said, one half
of knowing what you want is knowing what you are
willing to give up to get it.
On a final note, I will leave you with this thought: there is
no telling what you can do when you get inspired by your
goals. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in
them. There’s no telling what will happen when you act upon
them. – Jim Rohn
