“When you write down your ideas you automatically focus your full attention on them. Few if any of us can write one thought and think another at the same time. Thus a pencil and paper make excellent concentration tools.” – Michael Leboeuf
Many people don’t write their goals down and, as a result, they spend a lot of time wondering why their life lacks meaning. On the other hand, I have seen people who have taken the challenge and written down every goal and accomplished them beyond expectations. Well, committing your goals doesn’t mean that it is the end of the game. It’s not, but it’s the beginning of a long journey.
Every day we are faced with the question of what to do and what not to do. There are those that live purposely just because they were brought to life. Alternatively, there are those successful people who hunger to achieve success and greatness largely because they take the time to write their goals and work on them.
From observation, those people who write down their goals are more successful than those that don’t. But some may be wondering, is it worth setting goals by writing them down? Here are some benefits attached to writing down your goals that prove it is worth it.
2. Easy to Track Your Progress
5. Written Goals Are More Likely to Be Achieved
Every successful person will tell you that they have both short-term and long-term goals and each one of them needs to be achieved. But what is the secret behind their success? Simple, writing down your goals and focusing all their energy on achieving them. It may sound easy, but you have to put in the time, effort, sacrifice, and determination to achieve them. In the end, well-written goals are the beginning of the journey.
Creating goals and writing them down doesn’t take much time. If you want to change your life, then you will find these benefits worth the effort. Just get a pen and paper and write your goals down and don’t forget to keep a reminder to track your progress. Work on them and review your progress recurrently. Finally, you will succeed if you are determined and focused on your goals.
