How specific and comprehensive the goal is, simple but specific.
As you set the outcome goals, remember to work out the numbers that will feed your day to day activities.
How difficult the goal is and the degree which it require us to grow /increase our abilities.
Working out the numbers and breaking it to daily activities will give you a bigger picture of how challenging it’s going to be in achieving that gigantic goal. You will be ready to go for it, you won’t be deceiving yourself.
How dedicated are we to reach the goal and What value it renders to us (Lifestyle, Income, etc).Think about the income or the lifestyle it will afford you, picture it and help yourself live it for a moment and you will see how beautiful it is to achieve that goal, it will energize you to push harder.
How our achievements are perceived and recognized by others.
Positive feedback increases satisfaction after achieving the target. Think about the recognition and the prestige that comes with that goal, the congratulations and how proud your family will be of you.
The difficulty of the tasks that we are to learn and accomplish for reaching the ultimate goal.
You will become a better person after achieving that goal and you will be ready for higher level of performance.
