All of us know that setting a goal is very important in our life. But we often forget to set up goal because of to maintain our daily routine life.

What is Goal?

A goal is a task that we intend to prove. Goal is a task which we intend to accomplish.

Importance of setting goal

There are many advantages of setting goals. Let us find out why is it so important .

1) To move in the right direction: 

When you leave home in the morning, you know where to go and you get there, think what will you do if you do not know where to go? Time will be wasted in wandering around. Similarly, in this life too, if you have not set goals for yourself, then your life will continue, but when you look back later, you may regret that you did not achieve anything special!!

The goal gives the person a right direction. Tells him which work is necessary for him and which is not. If the goals are clear, we prepare ourselves accordingly. Our subconscious mind motivates us to act accordingly. If the goal is clear in the mind, then the path to achieve it also starts to be clear and the person increases his steps in that direction.

2) To use his energy properly: 

God has given man limited energy and limited time. Therefore, it is important that we use it properly. That’s exactly what the goal motivates us to do. If you do any work keeping your end-goal in mind, then your concentration and energy level is much better in it.

For example: When you go to a library for the purpose of reading a particular book, you pick up some books and flip their pages and read a few pages, but if you go to complete a project report, you choose the books that mean it and complete your work. In both cases, you give the same amount of time, but there is a difference in your efficiency. Similarly, in life too, if we do not have a definite goal in front of us, then we will continue to waste our energy and the result will not be anything special. But on the contrary, when we keep the goal in mind, our energy will be used in the right place and we will get to see the right results.

3) To be successful: 

The one who asks says that I want to be a successful person, but if you ask what will make himself a successful person, very few people will be able to answer it with full confidence. The meaning of success is different for everyone. And this meaning is determined by the goal itself. So if you don’t have a goal, you can succeed at once in the eyes of others, but how do you decide at your own glance whether you are successful or not? For this, you have to look at the goal set by yourself.

4) To overcome the contradiction of our mind: 

Many opportunities come and go in our life. No one can take advantage of all the opportunities of everyone even if they want to. We have to say yes and sometimes no to opportunities. In such a situation, it is natural to have situations when we are not able to decide what we should do. In such situations, your goal can guide you.

Now we can under that goals helps us to achieve our aim through action. We can set large goals as well as with daily and weekly goals. The benefits of practicing goals include an increase in motivation, a greater sense of responsibility, progress tracking, and help to set priorities.
