When was the last time you took some time to map your goals? How about today?

Goals are what take us forward in life; they are the oxygen to our dreams. They are the first steps to every journey we take and are also our last. It’s critical that you realize the significance and importance of goal-setting and apply this knowledge in your life.

Goals

How to set your Goal

Before and after having a great PDF download here SMART GOAL QUIZ

Click here: According to Wikipedia the exact definition of Goal

In other words, any planning you do for your “IDEAL” future regardless of what it is a Goal. 

We often think that a “Goal” has to be something big. Maybe you’ve got the impression that goals need to be about money, or Success in some way that society has defined.

In other words, any planning you do for your “IDEAL” future regardless of what it is a Goal. 

We often think that a “Goal” has to be something big. Maybe you’ve got the impression that goals need to be about money, or Success in some way that society has defined.

It could be buying a house or a car, yes, but it could also be something which might matter to no-one in the world except you – perhaps your goal is to learn to bake cakes as good as the ones your grandma used to make.

Different Goals in Life

What is your Goal in Life

A Goal is what we work for to achieve, and Success is the outcome of it. In other words, To establish ourselves or spread outreach and Happiness  .e.g.: you are planting a plant every day short term goal is to protect the plant, care it, nourish it, and allow it to grow.

Let’s understand GOAL DEFINE process

Now that you have learned about how goal setting can enrich and improve your life, you are probably eager to begin the target setting process yourself. In this section, we will discuss some of the most basic guidelines to remember as you start the process.

Smart Goal Setting Technique –

The S.M.A.R.T. (SMART) goals technique is the most popular method used for goal setting in the world today. There are some variations of this approach, but the most common version states that a well-set goal should meet the following criteria- It should be:-

Meaning of SMART Goals

SMART Goals

Here is one example of how to set an S.M.A.R.T goal

Target example – I want to ‘earn more money.’

You have a goal:

“I want to make more money.”

But…surprise, surprise nothing is happening!

To stand a greater chance of achieving it, turn it into an S.M.A.R.T Goal.

To do this uses the following five criteria:

1 – Make your goal SPECIFIC and write it down.

Goals Lists

To Do List

Write a sentence which encapsulates your goal in very specific terms. Having an ‘unclear’ goal like ‘I want to earn more money’ is utterly worthless.

One way to make your goal specific is to think about the ‘who,’ the ‘what,’ the ‘where’ and the ‘when’ of your goal.

Your goal sentence should contain the relevant number of these.

For example:

“By the end of 2017 (the when), In order forI (the who) am proudly earning 8,50,000 Rs. a year in a Manager job (the what) in Delhi (the where)”.

2 – Define yoFor

a goal to be stated explicitly, you must determine and verify what the tangible (concrete or substantial) measures for your goal will be.

In other words, the hat will you see, hear or feel when you have achieved your goal?

Your answers to this question are the ways you will recognize you have achieved your goal.

Without measures, how will you know that you been successful?

The goal sentence above is specific as a result of determining the following visible measures.

·         Pay checks from my 70,900 monthly salaries at least are deposited into my bank account each month.

·         I am working in a new Manager Job”.

·         I am living in Delhi.

When you list the measures for your goal then you can create a sentence that summarizes your goal much more easily.

Always remember the wise phrase ‘what cannot be measured, can’t be managed’!

Measures

Why Measure?

(You can think through your smart goal using the letters in the acronym in any order you like. I always create my specific goal statement AFTER defining my measures).
3 – Make sure your goal is ATTAINABLE

It must be possible for you to achieve your goal.

Setting unachievable , unattainable goals is futile. You will be doomed from the outset. You yourself need to be capable of implementing your goal.

Here is an example of a written goal that is unattainable.

‘My father is earning 8, 50,000 a year’.

For the goal to be attainable you would need to rephrase it like this:

‘I am earning 8, 50,000 a year’ OR ‘I am helping my father to earn 8, 50,000 a year’.

Attainable

Attainable

We often create goals that are about others. But goals must be stated in such a way that it is YOU who are in control of them and will take responsibility to make them happen.

So always ask yourself:

Is it POSSIBLE for me to achieve this goal? And Am I in CONTROL of achieving this goal?

 

If it isn’t and you are not, then you need to revise how you are stating your goal.

4 – Ensure your goal is REALISTIC

Your goal must be realistic.

For example – this goal is not realistic if you have never completed your MBA or any specific qualification for a manager…

Nor is it realistic if you are currently not only at Assistant Manager…

Your goal should also be STRETCHING and MOTIVATING, but not so big or complex that you will lose the motivation to achieve it.

5 – Define your TIMING

A goal must have a deadline.

This will provide you with the necessary focus and sense of urgency to make it happen.

When you finalize your specific goal sentence and write it down it must include your deadline.

To set a deadline you simply need to ask yourself:

By when do I want to have achieved my goal?

And then incorporate that date into your goal statement.

 

 

Additional Tips

 

1. The smart goal setting process is not a rigid 5 step process.

Rather, it is a checklist to ensure that the sentence you have written summarising your goal meets ALL of the above five criteria.

2. You can run through the five steps in any order. I think the best order is really

S.M.A T.R.S.

3. the most important part of the process is to define your measures.

In other words you need to know how you will recognise that your goal has been achieved. And if your goal involves other people, then they will need to know this too.

Congratulations you have set your goals

Best of luck for successful achieve your set goal.

The world known scientist Stephen Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author and Director of Research at the Center for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge. His key discovery was focusing on the evolution of the universe. He also knew for the study of Black Holes. With the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, a theory called ‘Hawking radiation.’ Hawking had a rare early-onset slow-progressing form of motor neuron disease (also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, “ALS”) that gradually paralyzed him over the decades. In between this disease he was lost his speech even after he still able to communicate through Speech Generating Device. Hawking was almost spent their 55 years of the life span in the wheelchair but he don’t give up and continue their research in various fields even after paralyzed. He was a big inspiration to the whole world.


Stephen Hawking Childhood

Stephen Hawking was born on January 8, 1942, in Oxford, England, to Frank and Isobel Hawking. His father was a medical researcher. He belonged to a family of well educated people. His mother was one of the first female students to have graduated from the Oxford University. He was borne during the World War II and he was the eldest children out of the four children’s. Hawking’s father wanted him to become a doctor but Hawking was interested in astronomy. He attended St. Albans School but he was not interested in studying. He always wants to inventing new things outside the classroom. He was never a brilliant student. Later, against his father’s wishes, he planned to pursue mathematics as his major but as the subject was not taught in Oxford University at the time; he had to take up physics and chemistry instead. Regardless he didn’t give careful consideration to the learned things and invested his energy to devising innovative techniques. In 1962, he graduated with honors, and went on to attend the University of Cambridge for a Ph.D. in cosmology. During his first year his body started to show abnormal physical symptoms he would suddenly trip and fall, and his speech slurred. After doing some test he was diagnosed that he was in the early stages of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), which meant that the part of his nervous system responsible for muscle control was closing down — a life threatening condition.  The doctor said that he had only two more years to live. Hawking realized his condition and started concentrating fully on his research work.

Personnel Life Of Stephen Hawking

Hawking’s had a two wife’s. He met his first wife, Jane Wilde, a friend of his sister, shortly before the diagnosis of his disease and they got married in 1965. They had three children together: Robert, Lucy, and Timothy. During the late 1980, Hawking had a romantic affair with one of his nurses, Elaine Manson, and left Jane for her. He divorced Jane and married Manson in 1995. It was suspected or it was rumor that Elaine was abusing him physically, but Hawking denied it. He divorced Elaine Manson in 2006. Hawking’s physical condition more and more began to get worse. He could no longer drive his wheelchair; he required a ventilator at times and was hospitalized several times since 2009. He was closely working with researchers on systems that could translate his brain patterns into switch activation’s. Stephen Hawking died peacefully at his home in Cambridge, England, on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at the age of 76. He always told his children’s that ‘Never look to your feet always look to the stars.’  he lives a great life.
