Already in previous articles you have spoken of the importance of goals and smart objectives. Make sure that your goals and objectives are well defined, since this will depend on the plan of action and consequently its realization and achievement. Filter 1.-are positive: in this aspect we refer to two variants, the most obvious is that goals and objectives are positive for anyone who defines them, is to say that it is something that the person really wants to achieve, otherwise soon you will forget them and will stop working to achieve them. Prevents your goals and objectives the not, nor, never, etc., this focuses on scarcity and lack. Highlight what you want to achieve rather than mentioning what you want leave. An example of this would be if you want to delete any addiction, prevents write something like: quitting smoking. Your mind will be focusing on smoking, just in what you want to do and not what new you want to do. Instead it writes something like: Respirare a better quality of this air year.
Filter 2.-are specific: remember, the mind works with specific commands and establish goals and objectives to be happier not tell your mind you want to live, what is not excited and a few days forgets him. To facilitate the process imagine that your goal will be received by a departmental store, you’ve got to make sure it receives the description of what you want exactly. Goals and objectives as: have or get a date this year is the same as tell the store want to a CD? Do engraving or to burn you, if it is recorded that genre, which singer, which of all his albums, special or Standard Edition, wrapped for gift? etc. 3.-Filter are verifiable: this is probably one of the aspects in which the majority of people hesitate in establishing goals and objectives, it is indicated how they checked or will realize that have already reached them. Example: Achieve an increase in average annual sales 6% over the previous year. Here it is very easy to find out if it is achieved the goal or not, and do not materialize, how much lack to reach the desired situation. Very different to only want to sell more. The goals and objectives should be measurable and quantifiable.
Filter 4-realistic are: trace goals and objectives far above our reach, our capabilities and current situation has only one name: AUTOSABOTAJE. If for example someone who does no exercise is set as a goal: get first 30 kms Marathon next month, it is very likely that not succeed because you do not have the adequate preparation. It is essential to be honest with yourself and recognize your strengths and limiting current. Aim too high in something that you don’t have the experience or training, nor the knowledge in a short period of time will diminish the chances of success and creates a sense of low self-esteem, which leads to discouragement of trace new goals and objectives.
