Setting up a goal is considered to be an important and
inevitable step in an effective career search. In my opinion an individual with
out a predetermined goal will be never successful, because he himself doesn’t
know where he has to take his career. For a successful job search, he or she
should find out what is their goals or where they want to reach in the career
path. Finding the goals set the guidelines for tasks and the inspiration to
achieve them. When it comes to the real life for planning and working its
really significant for you to set skilled goals. Because creating the
objectives and directions of yourself is the best way to plan the future for
you. By knowing which direction each individual has to take in their life for
the coming few years, this will enable them to focus their energy for a more
better job prospects. These goals have better way of pushing the individual
forward and motivating them to be more creative and productive. When you set
goals for yourself you are building a structure that will help the individual
to held more accountable.
So, when you set the goals it has to be S.M.A.R.T
It must be
SPECIFIC: The goals should be stated clearly
with no vagueness in it
Use numbers to evaluate whether to know you have succeeded in it or not.
ACHIEVABLE: Set only the goals that is achievable.
REALSITIC: Individual should be realistic about
how long it will take to reach there?
TIME STAMPED: Individual should set a time limit
to achieve the goal.
If we look into Why 3% of Harvard MBA Graduates made 10X
more than their classmates, only reason was that the 3% of all these have
planned and set forward specified and pre-defined goals, that they should
achieve in their life. And they were working so hardly to achieving the same.
This made them to stand apart and achieve success other than what their
classmates have achieved.
