Once you’ve identified your long-term goals, it should be easy to set short-term goals. Short-term goals are goals that can be easily achieved within a short time frame. They should be stepping stones towards your long-term goals.
For example, if I want to be able to run a marathon, I would have to run a little bit every day to build up stamina for the final run.
Short-term goals can be weekly or bi-weekly goals. If I want to run a marathon, a good example of a short-term goal would be to be able to run five miles without stopping by the end of the month.
After achieving this goal, I can set a new goal, like running ten miles without stopping by the end of the month. This is how short-term goals help you achieve long-term goals, like running a full marathon.
If you can identify your long-term goals and set effective short-term goals to help you reach your long-term goals, there’s nothing you can’t do! Short-term goals are a great way to simplify and organize your goals.
