How to set effective Goals

Setting Effective Goals

How to set effective and concise Goals.

Everyone talks about what they want to achieve, and they set out new year resolutions at the beginning of the year but not all know the effective way of setting these goals that will actually yield results. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying there is anything wrong with setting new year’s resolutions but what I am saying is that there are ways to set these resolutions to make them achievable.

In this blog post, I will be sharing with you some effective ways of setting goals that I and my students have tested and gotten exciting results from using them.

Ready? Well, let’s dive right in.

  • Be specific

When setting goals, it’s important to be specific about what you want to achieve. Instead of setting a vague goal like “get in better shape,” try setting a specific goal like “lose 10 pounds in 3 months” or “run a 5K in under 30 minutes.” Being specific will help you stay focused and motivated, as you will have a clear idea of what you are working towards.

  • Make your goals measurable

Measuring progress is an essential part of goal-setting. By making your goals measurable, you can track your progress and make adjustments if necessary. For example, if your goal is to save $5,000 for a down payment on a house, you can track your progress by setting aside a specific amount of money each month and monitoring your savings account balance.

  • Set achievable goals

While it’s important to set ambitious goals, it’s also essential to set achievable goals. Setting goals that are too difficult or unrealistic can be demotivating and lead to feelings of failure. Make sure that your goals are challenging, but also within reach. If you’re not sure if your goals are achievable, break them down into smaller, more manageable steps.

  • Set a deadline

Setting a deadline for your goals can help you stay motivated and focused. Without a deadline, it’s easy to put off taking action and let your goals fall by the wayside. When setting a deadline, make sure it’s realistic and achievable based on the specific goal you are setting.

  • Write down your goals

Studies have shown that people who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them. Writing down your goals can help you clarify your thinking and make your goals feel more real and concrete. Make sure to keep your written goals in a place where you will see them regularly, such as on your desk or in your planner. You can get a copy of my Goal setting Journal here

  • Stay accountable

Accountability can be a powerful motivator when it comes to achieving your goals. Share your goals with someone you trust, such as a friend or family member, and ask them to check in with you periodically to see how you’re doing. Alternatively, you can join a group or program that provides support and accountability for goal-setting. Join my community of Queens taking action towards their goals here 


In conclusion, setting effective goals can help you achieve success in many areas of your life. By being specific, measurable, achievable, and time-bound, and by writing down your goals and staying accountable, you can stay motivated and focused on achieving your goals. Remember that setting goals is just the first step – taking action and making progress towards your goals is the key to achieving success.
