Set Long-Term Goals and Break Them Down Into Short-Term Goals

Have you ever set a long-term goal and not know what to do in the short-term to achieve them? Or have you set short-term goals, but in the long run, the direction travelled was unfocused or was "left to chance?"

One way to solve this problem is to set long-term goals and break them down into short-term goals. That way, you'll see the forest and the trees at the same time. Your short-term efforts will be in line with your long-term goals. And you'll have the steps mapped out on how to achieve your long-term goals.

Let's say you have a goal to make an extra $120,000 in income in one year starting from today. You can break that goal down into 12 monthly goals. Each of those 12 monthly goals might be to make an extra $10,000 in income. Then in turn, each of those 12 monthly goals can be broken down into 4 weekly goals. And each weekly goal can be broken down into 7 daily goals.

That's one way to break down your goals. Another way is you can set a goal and then break it down into subgoals representing each step you must accomplish to achieve the main goal. Once all the subgoals have been achieved, the main goal should be achieved.

Breaking down your goals can be effective for your goal setting. Give it a try.
