Can you know are you a productive person without goals that you need to achieve?
Everything that you do have connections with some of your goal, and because of that they become important part in building your own productivity.
But, as human beings we can make mistakes. The important thing is that we need them, and we need to work toward their achievement. On the other side if we have wrong goal, our productivity will suffer. Is there something achieved as unimportant for us can to become something that will increase our productivity?
The goal setting mistakes that that can decrease your productivity are following:
1. You Are Not Clear About Your Own Desires
Everything starts with your own desires and wishes about you and your future. What you want to achieve? What you want to become in the future?
These desires and wishes are the basis for your future goals. Be clear about it and use them when you set up your own purposes for the future.
2. They Aren’t SMART Goals
One mistake that I can see too often is setting up goals that’s not SMART. You need to try making them specific, measurable, achievable and time limited.
Non SMART goal is a large source of our unproductive efforts of achievement.
Using the SMART system to set up your goals you can drastically improve your own achievement and productivity.
3. They Can’t Motivate You for Achievement
Because you want to achieve them and make your dreams to become true, you will need motivation to do that. If your goal not motivate you to start doing things to achieve it, you can’t expect that you will be productive in doing things.
4. You Are Afraid of Failure
Sometimes you can find yourself in a position when you want to adjust your goal because you are simply afraid that you can’t achieve it.
Fear is something that can have a negative impact on your goals and achievement. Try to eliminate it.
5. You Have Too Much Goals Without Personal Capacity to Achieve Them
I know that you have big dreams, but you have your own limits because of different factors in your life. It is better to start with something and increase how you achieve them one by one.
