In the article, “The Importance of Goal Setting” by Alex Cleanthous, a cquote stuck out to me saying, “Setting goals is like having a destination before takeoff. If you know where you're going, you can focus on the end result and get back on track if any obstacles get in the way. ” This article then further classifies five areas in your life where you have set, clear goals for yourself. The five areas in your life are finances, career, health, family, and friendships. By setting goals in different parts of our lives it can bring positive impact. Also, goals give us the ability to measure our process of attaining out goals. You discover what is working for you and what is not. I think this is important because it will allow you to set realistic goals that you can actually achieve. Also, I believe that this will allow you to better monitor yourself so you don’t feel intimidated by failure.
