Yearn to Achieve Big Goals by Reaching Small Milestones

3 min read

Remember that your goal has to be specific.

A general goal is something like “I want to earn a lot of money.” Now, this sounds very unambiguous, right? How much is “a lot”? A specific amount was not indicated.

A specific goal would be “I want to earn at least $150,000 this year.”


Measurable goals have certain criteria that let you measure your progress as you reach for them. It is crucial to measure your progress to see how far along you are to reaching your goal.

So, to make your goal measurable, you have to ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many or How much?
  • How do I determine when I’ve accomplished my goal?
  • What is my progress indicator?

For example, your goal is to lose weight. Now, you cannot simply say “I want to lose weight”. You have to be specific. So, you have to say “I want to lose 2 lbs. per week.”

Then, you have to make your goal measurable. So, you need to take action and track your progress. In order to lose 2 lbs. per week, you have to burn about 500 to 1,000 calories more than you consume per day. You can hit the gym and go on a diet. Be sure to consult your doctor as well.


Achievable goals are attainable and not impossible to achieve. Although challenging, they are well-defined.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Can I achieve this goal using the resources that I have?
  • If I cannot achieve this goal using my available resources, what could I be missing?
  • Has this goal been achieved by other people before?
