Hey there, I’m glad you’re here, and welcome to the first post in the “A Good Goal Is Worth Gold” series dedicated to …
You’ve guessed it!
You see, personally, I have a thing (or two! 😉 ) about goals.
Not only do I love to create them, but there are other things that make goals super-fun!
Putting your dreams into the real world (the first step to make anything possible is to reveal it and acknowledge it, ‘ya know!), or…
Planning, testing, and discovering ways to reach that goal, and…
Learning and growing personally or professionally throughout the process (my favorite part, I have to admit! 🙂 )
Due to my passion for goals, I envisioned this to be a series which will tackle every single aspect of the whole goal setting/achieving process, from even the pre-defining stage until its realization.
(P.S. It should also work for any goal you can think of!)
Therefore, if you’re new to making goals, this will be a good place to get the info you need so you can start creating (and achieving!) some goals on your own.
In this post, I would like to address one common misconception about goals, the one that many of us make at least at one point in time. And that is…
The connection between goals and New Year
There are high chances it’s about New Year’s time and you’re reading this.
Am I right?
And that’s the thing I don’t get.
Goals are such a hot topic around the New Year when everybody talks about them (and creates them).
And then the NY passes, and…
Sure, I know it’s the famous New Year’s resolutions time.
And psychologically, we do perceive it as a new beginning (the same way we view Monday, or the beginning of each month).
As a new chance to be and do better.
And at those moments we are all excited about entering new possibilities.
We hope that the year ahead of us will be THE one of our dreams.
And so we make lists with numerous wishes, desires, and goals, putting great expectations in things to come.
Inevitably, the year passes.
When summarizing, some goals are achieved and some not.
And speaking of which – here’s one shocking, not-so-happy fact to get the picture of the effectiveness of New Year resolutions.
Did you know that statistically, more than 90% of people DON’T achieve them? 😮

I think that speaks enough about the (un)effectiveness of the New Year resolutions.
The New Year’s day is just a day in a calendar (along with a lot more days in a year, as well).
And what would you do if some super-fabulous idea suddenly appeared to you in the middle of the year?
(which quite often can be the case)
So, I think it’s time we stop thinking about goals only around January.
Our ideas, inspiration, and passions are neverending!
And any time is a good time to come up with a superb idea which you would love to get your hands on (as of yesterday) & make it your reality!
A Good Goal Is Worth Gold
Now that I got that weight off my chest, it’s time to address other, more important thing, and that is…

I’ll do my best to cover every aspect a goal might have, from its very beginning, all the way to the end.
