What do you do when you have various goals that are competing for your time and energy?
Goal management is an art, just like any other type of management.
Let's repeat a little bit, shall we? A good goal is:
Obviously one has to think about these aspects before embarking on the journey of attaining the goal. Things might go wrong along the way, but good planning is still an essential part of the process.
What do you do when you have several goals? I believe this is a common problem. It would be an ideal situation if we could dedicate our time for one goal only, but usually we are swamped with academic, professional, family.related and other goals. It's not uncommon that people are building houses, worrying about their careers, thinking about starting a family and getting ready to run a marathon. At the same time.
In these cases planning becomes even more essential. If you know what you want and how you are going to achieve it, life will be easier. You will also need to use your skills in time management. Manking priorities is important: usually it's impossible to dedicate all your time to goals, friends and family will want to get some attention too. My suggestion is that you include as many people as possible in your goal-related activities.
