The goals you set for yourself are of great importance and will affect what you achieve in life. Your personal life is at the centre of what you do… The professional, social and other aspects of your life are all affected by the quality of personal goals that you set!

As a blogger sharing life tips, I’ll list some hacks for setting meaningful life goals that I value immensely myself! Please feel free to click on the links below for more information.

Here are 6 tips for setting personal goals:

1. Set the right goals

At the end of each year, you may feel the need to go through the New Year resolutions that you’ve taken. In doing so, you’d evaluate how well you achieved what you wanted to, what positive changes you brought to your life, and so on. You can set goals at any time of the year… Set the right goals for next year.

2. Ensure better life goals

While you work on your set objectives, you need to follow an action plan (although informally for personal goals). The quality of the goals you set for yourself is primordial. If you first don’t nail down what you want to achieve, you’ll waste precious time in the longer-term. So, do ensure better life goals!

  1. I specially liked the tip to write down and monitor your progress in a journal because we almost always set goals but forget to look back and see if we are actually achieving them!

  2. Having read this I thought it was very enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this short article together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!


  3. These are great suggestions! It’s important to make goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Reasonable and Time-bound (SMART). Setting goals to lose weight, or be a famous writer go unfulfilled year after year. I love your point about journaling. Writing down your progress keeps you accountable and allows you to make adjustments as needed.

  5. ‘Make the most of your life!’
    Now that has to be my slogan. Whenever I’m setting goals, I love stretching out and seeking discomfort in a way that I’ll realistically achieve them.My 2020 goal includes adventure travel to face all my fears. I can’t wait!

  6. I believe setting small goals are more motivating than big goals that can leave you frustrated. Intentional living is something I have to incorporate in my goal setting. Thanks for your advice on that.
