7. Set Long-Term and Short-Term Goals
Some experts recommend setting one-month, one-year, five-year and ten-year goals, and I do that every now and then. I’ve found it more practical to keep my ultimate end-point goals in mind (e.g. being financially independent), and continually ask myself what the next right step is to keep moving along the path to each goal. It helps for small steps to be “SMART” goals as described above.
Keep the above exercises, lists and goals in a special notebook, date your entries, and update and rewrite as you go. You’ll enjoy looking back and checking off goals or dreams you’ve accomplished-I put gold stars next to mine!
