Do you create daily, weekly, or monthly goals?
How many of us create daily, weekly, or monthly goals? I have created goals before but have never written them down. Perhaps writing them down will make it so I am able to achieve the goal or work harder at it?

What sort of goals do you set? Do you have personal goals, such as work out three times per week for half an hour each time? Or do you have goals for your family life, such as making sure to wish every member in your family a happy birthday or anniversary? What about career goals? Do you have goals where you have to contact a certain amount of people each week if you are a freelancer? Or do you make it a point to network with others in your field?

You may also have spiritual goals, financial goals, or a bucket list. These are all goals that you may want to reach within a year or 5 years.

My question is, what do you do to obtain your goals? Do you make it a daily priority to reach your goals? Or do you set goals and then fail to meet them?

I like to live my life one day at a time so I try to live for the day and not for days or weeks.So yes I make goals that will only cover my daily activities per time.It helps ease tension and pressure of carrying a heavy burden and fear of the unknown.I jot down my daily goals and try to execute them one at a time and it has been working out good for me.

I like making long term goals. Goals that will need few months or a year to achieve. I also don't like putting pressure on myself and sometimes it is better to live without worry or a care in the world. Goals helps and remind us to look forward and never give up.

I make long term goals and list them down to help remind myself. I set the time for achieving these goals which I feel is important if I ever want to achieve them. Some goals are huge goals that need to be accomplished in increments so I set the time for those sub-goals as well. For earning goals, I set a weekly goal for it and evaluate on a daily basis how I'm doing vis-a-vis the goal. This is quite important for me because there are a lot of goals that depend on the realization of my earning goals.

I used to create SMART goals up to one year but I found it was difficult to keep myself motivated. Instead I create monthly goals with daily and weekly steps. I find it keeps my motivation high. Seeing how every little step builds up to accomplishing your overall objective is pretty exciting.

The SMART goal strategy is excellent. I have analyzed some strategies and realized that the secret to achieving goals is simply to create habits. With habits we can make anything happen. I think that's the key to success.

I have long-term goals that end up splitting into small monthly and weekly steps. I am currently aiming to get into the habit of getting up early and exercising. In the afternoon I have the goal of studying English to become fluent. And during the day I take care of my work. Anyway, I have great goals and small goals. But the most important thing in this is to go after the results.

Yes definitely, I really make lot of goals in my life so that I can be more aggressive to achieve that goal. Without any goal life is sucks so we should have our own goal to make our life better and we should use our goals as one of our inspiration so that we can obtain those things and dream we want. :)

That is completely true. It is also important how we set our goals. These goals have to be realistic and yet challenging enough to keep us going and to keep us motivated.

Goal setting is the best motivation for me. I have long-term and short- term goals. I make sure that I break my goals into tasks that I undertake, daily, weekly and monthly. This get's me out of bed, every morning. My mentor for goal setting is Jim Rohn who teaches that you shouldn't start the day, week, month or year before you know how it is going to end. He advocates writing down your goals so that you are committed to them, so you can evaluate yourself and so that future generations can see how you worked and what was your purpose.

I create both weekly and monthly goals. I have tried making daily as well but I feel like it isn't needed unless you are extrenely busy because keeping up with constant daily goals can be quite challenging.

But I do love to have weekly/monthly ones. They help me as a motivational tool.

I don't make any weekly or daily goals and I've mainly just been living day by day but I am starting to feel like I should be doing more planning in my life so I am going to start making some long term goals and some short term goals that will lead me to them. I think there is merit in both ways of living and it just depends on what you want out of life but I am just starting to feel like I should be making a change because my mentality is now slowly changing and now I am wanting other things so I am going to start working towards those goals.

When I was younger, I had a chart that is actually a list of things to do. In the bottom are listed the goals. Most of the goals are about school and later about my job in the office. It was a nice thing to have because I felt motivated. However, I cannot do that anymore because my schedule is so hectic with a full time job and a family to take care of. Writing down a list of goals is better to be in the mind and not on a list anymore. But in fairness to me, I also have the so called bucket list, that’s the long term goals.

I create daily goals, weekly goals, monthly goals as well as year goals. Having goals help you manage your workflow. Goals will also help you to achieve you things that you want. It is not important whether your goals are fulfilled or not, what is important is having goal and working towards fulfilling your goals. My daily goals include, making at least 50 posts on forums, promoting my blogs on spocial media. My weekly goal is to write at least two articles.

Yes I do. The most important thing while making a plan for achieving a goal is preplanning about how to tackle the obstacles in the path. It's important to make a list of the the things you are going to do in the morning before going to bed at night. It's very important to win the start of the day to win the whole day. Divide the task , and do one thing related to the task first thing in the morning. It will keep you thrilled to complete more tasks throughout the day. To avoid distraction, always think about the tasks in your mind and don't let distracting thoughts come to your mind. When you feel distracted and lazy, wake up early the next morning, and start the day with you set plan of goal. It will fill you with new energy and enthusiasm.

I do create goals for myself, not every day or every week but I do monthly. I enjoy having something to work towards. I like the sense of accomplishment when I reach the goals I have set for myself. Sometimes I may not accomplish the goal but if I dont I am not too hard on myself. I just keep at it. I think it is great to have goals and have things to work towards.

It's always better to set goals in life especially on the things that you mostly do so you'll have a goal that needs to achieve. That way, it can also help you push yourself to your limits so you can meet your set of goals for a set of things. If you don't have a goal in life, you will never know your limits.

I create yearly goals for myself. Weekly or monthly goals seems like a disordered way to do things.

I like to create and set goals for myself. I normally write down everything even my weekly schedules. Not everyone prefers to set the time limit for themselves which I do respect. Maybe I do things which that makes me more productive and effective. I am an organized person and I feel bad if I didn't meet my expectation. It helps me to check myself from if I am on track and do some tweaks if needed. My motto " Push yourself because no one is going to do it for you."

At the beginning of the year, I write the things that I want to achieve in the year but, if during the year, I think that I have to be more focused or I have to rethink what I'm doing, I add new thing on the list or, I change or edit the old goals. Honestly, many times, those goals are just words written on a paper but, other times, I achieve them because I write a lot of short-term goals because I know those little goals will help me to achieve something bigger that I wish. Writing goals is necessary for my life so, I will show you some habits that I aply in my life.

  • First, I put my goals in hand of God. He has the control of my life and everything that I achieve is thanks to Him.
  • I enjoy the road to achieving my goals.
  • I establish priorities.
  • Being intentional is important because we have to make an effort.
  • Having someone who can help us or who can push us to reach the goal is also necessary.
  • I eliminate everything that can steal my time.
  • Having a model person help me too.

When I was younger I kept a calendar and a To Do List. I had self-imposed due dates, etc. It worked well. It definitely was a boost to my productivity.

Now that I work for myself, at home, online, I set daily goals for myself. I don't usually reach all of the goals because I have a bad habit of setting too many goals. But I intentionally set more than I know I can achieve because when you are working with technology sometimes you can't do certain things because … no Internet … the site went down … etc. So the best way to describe my goal-setting is that the To Do List always includes a backup plan for when things break!

The key to setting goals is establishing priorities. Make sure you know what is the most important task to get done and try to get it done first.

I used to. I remember writing them on my Notes app and believing I could achieve them all. I stopped doing it because I prefer going with the flow now, having too much goals is very stressful for me especially if those goals are hard to achieve. But I do have monthly financial goals, I love money and I love saving money so I tend to focus on that matter more than anything else now.
