How to turn dreams into goals 

Each of us loves to dream and believes that if you really want something, it’ll happen for sure.

✨ But a dream can come true only with your help 🙂

You can achieve everything if you become more tolerant and diligent with a reasonable action plan in your pocket.

So let’s not waste time and start acting 🤌

The first step is to write a list of dreams and desires that should become goals. Choose 3 main dreams and describe them according to the SMART system.

SMART stands for:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound

Specific — to increase the chances of achieving a goal, we have to make it specific. While setting a goal, exactly define the result you want to achieve.

Measurable — for measuring a goal you can use answers to such questions:

  • When will I consider the goal as achieved?
  • What indicator will show that the goal has been achieved?

Constant process monitoring and result analysis make it possible to create a detailed way for achieving the goal.

Attainable — you should determine how achievable and realistic the goal is. There can be such restrictions as:

  • time and labor resources
  • investments
  • knowledge and experience
  • access to information and the ability to make decisions 

Write down what obstacles and restrictions you may encounter while fulfilling your long-cherished desire.

Relevant — determine whether achieving a particular goal is really necessary and profitable.

You should have a genuine desire to reach the goal. Your interest and commitment won’t let you give up at the first failure.

Time-bound — set a certain time limit to achieve your goal. Often the absence of a clear deadline allows a person to put off things, even the most important ones.

Remember: by overcoming all obstacles, you can grow and achieve your dreams faster. See all barriers as opportunities to get closer to your goal.

We recommend you to take it slow and not to give up. Slow progress is steady progress.
