Most people have goals in life but very few of them take the trouble of writing them down. While writing them down might seem like a waste of time and energy, it is in fact the simplest way of ensuring that you work towards and achieve your goals. Studies too, have proved that people who write down their goals manage to accomplish them more than the one who don’t.
Take your time. Once you envision your goal, write it down immediately. Don’t dawdle, as you might lose focus. Write down whatever comes to your mind in terms of obstacles, milestones or even benefits of achieving your goal.


Keep your written goals in your vicinity will keep you motivated. Especially on days when you seem to be going nowhere, the post-it on your mirror or fridge will remind you of your ultimate goal and keep you moving.

Make it real

Writing down your goals on a piece of paper makes it more real. The destination becomes more tangible and thereby provides much more motivation than a mere thought. Scientifically, the simple act of writing down your goals provides your brain with a new dimension of consciousness, ideas and productivity.

Break it down

Once you write it down, you will be able to break it down further into short term goals, to-do lists and several milestones. This will give you clarity and help you understand the way to achieve it, better.

Goal setting is important but just having great ideas isn’t enough. Writing down goals will keep you on track and help you achieve them in more realistic manner.
