Setting goals and achieving them can be a daunting and complicated process. As a result, many people fail to reach their goals and end up feeling frustrated and defeated. But, it does not have to be this way. There are certain things you can do to make the process less complicated and easier to follow. The following are the ways to help you set a goal and achieve it in less than a year.


Be focused on your goal

The secret to achieving your goal is to know what you want in order to know how to get it. Achieving your goals and keeping them is a lot easier when you have the right goals and a plan in place. Learning how to set goals, decide on the best strategies for getting you to your goal, and follow through is the key to success.


Write down exactly what you want 

Goals are something that you should not just focus on once a year or once in a lifetime. It is important that you write down what you want on a daily basis. When you do this, you will have a better chance of achieving your goals within 6 to 12 months.


Develop an action plan 

When setting any goal to achieve in life, the first thing that should be done is develop an action plan. The action plan will detail all the steps you need to take to achieve your goal and will help you to avoid any setbacks. The action plan also helps you to keep track of your progress and ensures that you stay focused. 


Take action each month

There are a lot of ways to set a goal and achieve it. What matters most is how you take action each month and how that impacts your goal. If you take an action each month, then reaching your goal will be less than a year away. 


Track your progress

Every step counts in the pursuit of any goal. There are no shortcuts to success. However, statistics show that people who are successful in setting and achieving their goals have one thing in common: they keep track of the steps they take, and continuously monitor and re-evaluate their progress.



The most important part of setting a goal is to stay committed to the task. If you set a goal, remember why it's important to you. If you break the goal into smaller tasks, you'll reach it faster. I hope this post has inspired you to overcome the doubt and disbelief that is holding you back from taking the first step in your journey to a better life.
