The Importance of Planning & Goal Setting

Planning becomes impossible without goals as it plays a fundamental role in achieving them. It involves how, what and when. How will I achieve my goals? What do I need to achieve my goals? And by when would I need to have achieved my goals? Whether your goal is as simple as learning a new language or as strenuous as working towards obtaining a degree. It all requires some sort of planning. However, the need to plan becomes redundant without goals. So, below I have jotted down three reasons why setting goals is important.

1. Vision 

Setting goals allows vision for your future. It gives you something to look forward to and grants you a new way of looking at life. It redefines what we know circumstances to be by allowing you to understand that “where you are almost doesn’t matter because you are becoming someone greater.”

2. Direction

It gives you a sense of direction and purpose. You begin to know where you’re going and what you’re working towards. This also allows you to re-position yourself. Be it financially, spiritually or psychologically.

3. Improves frame of life

You become more aware of your life choices because your focus is on achieving your goals. When you become aware of your choices you ultimately make better decisions. Progress from past achievements motivates you to continue on the path to improving your life. When you begin to reap the rewards of setting goals you’re able to make smarter decisions, strive for better and work harder.
