Follow these 4 Simple Steps to Set Achievable Goals

How to set achievable goals?

Step 1: Identity what type of Goals you have in mind

What type of goals you have in mind? Do you have goals to achieve every day or do you have monthly/weekly/yearly goals?


  1. An everyday goal can be: Drink 8 glasses of water, Walk a Mile, etc.
  2. Monthly Goals can be: Earn this target money, finish one online-course, etc.
  3. Weekly goals can be: complete 10 pages of assignments, finish the office presentation on financial-risks, etc.

Identifying what goals you want to accomplish is important. Only then, you can proceed further in setting achievable process goals.

Step 2: Write them down

The second step is to write all the goals you want to achieve in your journal or separate notebook. Personally, writing your goals becomes a powerful reminder for you. You can find a goal-planner notebook. Or, a simple notebook will do. You can separate it for days, weeks, and months for convenience.

Step 3: Write Process Goals

Under each goal, write down its corresponding process goals.


Weekly Goal 1: Want to finish office-presentation on Financial Risks.

Process Goals: Collect references from financial-dept., finalize the design-layout by Wednesday, etc.

Daily Goal 1: Drink 8 Glasses of Water

Process Goals: Carry own Water-bottle, place it nearby workspace, refill during breaks without fail, etc.

Step 4: Start

Now start executing your process goals for your day, month, and weeks. You can also prioritize it according to importance and convenience.

Step 5: Measure Progress

Strikeout once you have finished the process goals. The more you complete your process goals, the closer you get to reach your ultimate goal.


Set simple and clear achievable goals for yourself. Reaching your end-goal becomes stress-free. The quality of the outcome will be highly fruitful.
