“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” — Andrew Carnegie

We set goals for ourselves. We get excited and enthusiastically do the things to achieve that goal for the first few months (or weeks); then we missed and forget every once in a while; until the occasional forgetting becomes permanently not doing anything to achieve that goal anymore. This is what happens usually, and the reason for most of us not achieving our goals.

So what can we do to avoid falling into this trap? I say we should MARRY OUR GOALS.

  • BE COMMITTED. Make our goals a part of who we are by incorporating it to our habits.
  • BE FAITHFUL. Our goals should not be something that we can just give up. We should stick to them whether in times of difficulties (or failures) and triumphs.
  • BE PASSIONATE ABOUT IT. We should not settle for mediocrity.  We should always strive for improvement in our performance.
  • LEARN TO COMPROMISE. We should know how to prioritize. Let go of other stuffs that prevents us from progressing towards the achievement of our goals.
  • INVEST TIME AND ENERGY. We reap what we sow. If we do not invest, we can expect nothing in return.

So, when do you want to get married?:)

  1. Love this! I think it’s also important to know what your goals are, and to focus on only a few at a time- too many goals overwhelms and nothing gets done. Great points and thanks for sharing!!

    1. Thank you for reading! I’m glad that you like my post 🙂 I agree, breaking one big overwhelming goal into mini-easier-to achieve goal is always a helpful strategy. 🙂

  2. Goal setting is such a fundamental element of my motivation! I set hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. Of course, I also have my 5/10 year aims but these generally are vague mainly because I am still determining what I want to do.

    I love this!

  3. Good post. 🙂 I would add, make sure they are YOUR goals…not someone else’s idea of what you should be doing with your life. There’s nothing quite as demotivating as spinning your wheels toward a goal that is not even yours…

    1. Very nice addition to the list. I agree with you! I think it relates also to the fact that goals should be inspiring. I think some goals aren’t achieved not because they are difficult, but because they aren’t inspirational. So if they are NOT your goals, the more you will feel forced, and that is not a good feeling. THANK YOU for sharing your thoughts! ?
