Organization goals

I Write Down My Goals by Debra A. Thomas, MBA

I know what I want and how to achieve it. Putting my goals on paper clarifies my thinking and increases my motivation. I deepen my sense of commitment. I feel more accountable. I am less likely to become distracted or make excuses.

I write my goals down each morning and revisit them at night. I use them to structure my days and measure my progress.

I create clear and compelling language. I ensure that my goals are meaningful and realistic for me. I add details and descriptions that help me to translate my objectives into concrete steps.

I focus on what I can control. I design goals that depend on my effort and resources rather than counting on external events.

I find a format that works for me. I write lists or draw diagrams. I browse for templates online or create my own. I carry around a notebook and pen. I experiment with different apps.

I post my goals where I can see them. I keep a copy on my phone and inside my office door. My targets stay fresh in my mind.

I check off the tasks as I complete them. Each accomplishment gives me satisfaction and helps me to build more momentum. I feel confident in myself and my abilities. I know that I can realize my dreams.

Today, I am determined to succeed. I expand my comfort zone and create the results I want. I keep my goals in sight.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Why are written goals more powerful?
  2. How can I align my goals with my values?
  3. What is the difference between a goal and a wish?
