Setting goals and taking action are important because they help you focus on what you want to achieve and give you a sense of purpose. When you have a clear goal in mind, you are more likely to stay motivated and work towards it. Especially if you write it down and tell other people you trust. Once you do this you need to go all in and put your thoughts and ideas into action.
It’s important to have a clear sense of your goals. By writing them down or discussing them with others you can hone the a goal and the steps it will take to reach it. Not thinking through a goal will either result in you not reaching the goal or maybe focusing on the wrong goal or steps. Thinking through things will allow you to find the essence of what matters to you and where you want to be. Once you have fully thought through a goal, the next thing to do is to take the first step you outlined for yourself.
Taking action, or making progress towards your goal, helps you to see that you are moving forward and can give you a sense of whether your goal is the right one or reachable. It also helps you build momentum and makes it easier to continue working towards your goal. This puts you on a positive course even if it is changing your goal or the steps you think are necessary to reach the goal.
All of this being said, it’s important to have a clear sense of your goals and regularly reassess your goals. Having a direction or a sense of purpose helps focus your efforts and motivation. Taking massive action means being proactive and putting in the effort to make things happen, rather than waiting for opportunities to come to you. It also means you are willing to take risks and step out of your comfort zone in order to make progress, both of which matter and help on the path to success.
