One of the reasons we live is to get things done. But to get a lot of things done in life, there are so many things that have to come together to make them happen. If you get this one thing right, you will reach your goal faster than you ever imagined possible.

“All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do.”- Norman Vincent Pearle

What is this one thing? Wherever you want to go in life, you need something to get you there. You can’t start going without this one thing. In order to do well in life, this is what you need to know: LEARN HOW TO SET SMART GOALS. Nothing else. If you master the art of goal-setting, you have mastered everything.

To move from point A to Point B, you need to have a plan. You need to have a goal. If not, you are not going anywhere. Even if you manage to go somewhere, you are not going to go too far. You need a goal to reach your destination.

“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the actions steps.”- Confucius

Your goal is your road map. It is your plan that will get you to where you want to be. It is the plan that will move you from where you are now to where you want to be. In order to make this happen, don’t set goals that you can’t achieve. Set small goals, not vague goals. You must set a realistic goal for yourself. The people who are doing well are those who set great goals for themselves.

If you set great goals for yourself, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life. Set one for yourself, and commit yourself to making it a reality.


What you do, do with all your might

To enjoy your work is to love it. If you don’t love what you do, you can’t be happy doing it. Friend, whatever it is that you do for a living, take it seriously. It matters. What you do matters. Take pride in what you do. It does not matter what you do. What matters is you feel about it. What matters is how you are doing your job. What matters is what the job is giving you.

In the words of Marcus Tullius Cicero, “Whatever you do, do it with all your might.” Whether you are a CEO or a cleaner, your job matters. Respect what you do, and you will find happiness in it.

People are not happy with their jobs because they don’t believe in what they are doing. They don’t believe in their jobs. The CEO’s job is not better than yours. If you think so, think again.

If you want to make your own job meaningful, change how you think, see, and do your job. Everything is all about perception. If you think your job is bad, it is bad. If you think your job is the best, it is the best. Make your job the best, and you will enjoy it.
