Signs That You Didn’t Set the Right Goals

The owner of KK&B Financial Services for Seniors, Brad Liebe offers life insurance, supplemental insurance, annuities, and many other products to seniors. In addition to his work as a financial services provider, Brad Liebe works as a motivational speaker for Rick Olson Seminars and talks about such topics as goal setting.

Below are several signs that the goals you’re working toward aren’t right:

They’re too easy
Goals that are too simple for you to complete will not keep you engaged for very long. The same is true of goals that are too difficult. Ideally, you want to set goals that require you to go slightly out of your comfort zone, while still being based on the skills, strengths, and resources that you already have.

They feel like a chore
Working toward a goal shouldn’t feel so unpleasant that it becomes a chore. Rather, good goals drive you to accomplish them. Sometimes goals feel unpleasant because you never really cared about them when you set them. Other times, goals become mundane after you’ve worked on them for a bit.

They’re not specific
Many people think their intentions are the same as their goals, but this isn’t the case. A goal is specific. It creates a measurable difference in your life and can help you hold yourself accountable if you don’t accomplish it. When a goal isn’t specific enough, you won’t know whether you’ve accomplished it or not.
