Having a written goal is an important part of achieving it. Writing your goal down assists you in visualizing it, seeing the success you want to achieve, and working toward achieving it. As I mentioned before, goals should be specific and achievable.
A common problem with most goals are they are only a single, long term goal. This can become discouraging, and make it harder to see the progress you are making toward that goal. To prevent this issue, take your long term goal and break it down into smaller steps. This gives you intermediate goals you can achieve and helps you see the steps you are taking.
An important part of goal setting is defining a time limit. A goal without a time limit is only a wish. Goals are things we WILL accomplish.
