Have you set your 2021 Goals? by Kenneth Ejikeme-Nzeh
In the last few years, I have experimented with a simple strategy that has improved my life.
In this article I will be sharing with you what goals are, what a goal must have, Areas to set your goals
etc. What is a Goal?
📌 A goal is a projection into the future with a plan of action and a start and finish date.
📌 A goal is a desirable outcome that someone carefully decides on, commits to, and plans to attain.
A goal without a plan is just a wish. You must have a plan on how you want to crush your goals.
A goal with a plan and a date becomes achievable.
When you set your goals you must have a plan on how to execute your goals, you must also include a
date. Why do you need to fix a date, When you fix the time frame into anything you become more
serious about it true or false?
You put in more energy, more resources why? Because you are conscious that there is a limited time
in other to achieve a particular goal.
Let me give you a short illustration
There are two friends called David and Dayo both of them intended to become authors in 2020 so they
both set a goal to write and publish their books by December 2020.
David set his goal and included a deadline(Time-bound). Dayo just set his goal to write a book
Every day David said he will write at least 100 words and put a reminder for that unlike Dayo he felt
relaxed because he felt there was still much time.
At the end of the year, David was able to complete his book project while Dayo couldn’t complete the
project because he feels there is more time. So when you set a goal fix a deadline on when you intend to
achieve it and see for yourself how you will crush that goal.
There are various areas we can set a goal and some of them are
📌 Career: Decide what level you want to reach in your career or what you want to achieve. You can’t remain
in a spot for 5,10yrs without moving forward. Set a goal, plan towards it, and crush it.
📌 Finances: Set a goal on how much you want to earn. You can’t be earning 15,000 for 5yrs and you are
feeling happy. No way!! I hate stagnation. This is a new year how much do you want to earn?? Set
that big goal for yourself for me, by the end of 2021 I want to make my first million.
Some of you might see it as mission impossible but it’s not. Once you set that goal work towards it and you
will achieve it.
📌 Family: Are you married or you are about to get married? What kind of partner do you want??
What number of children do you want? What kind of house do you want to live in?? What school do you want
your child to go to? Sit down with your family and set goals.
📌 physical: are there physical goals you need to achieve? What steps are you going to take in other to achieve
this? Sit down plan!
