Setting goals is as important as it’s difficult. Once you do, you need to review your goals regularly. In addition to reading and reviewing your goals, you need to assess where you are and whether a goal needs to be revised.
Sometimes you don’t know a goal needs to be revised until you’re on the road trying to reach the goal. Once it becomes clear change is needed, make it. There is no reason to follow steps you have sketched out if you find there is a better path.
If you don’t review your goals it’s unlikely you will reach them, or it will take longer than if you had changed course. If, when reviewing them, you determine there is a better course of action, make necessary changes then. Then check in again regularly to see how you’re doing and whether additional tweaks are needed.
By constantly reviewing and working on your goals, the path you’re on, and where you are on the journey, you’re investing in yourself. The time to start in now.
