Long-Term Goals and Short-Term Objectives

As you analyze your future personality profile, you will probably see that it can be logically broken down into several categories of self-improvement focusing on career, social status & relationships, education & training, communication skills, physical well-being, earning and saving. These elements of your personality profile are the basis for your long-term goals for change. Goals that are too broad or too vague are built on “psychobabble” (“I want to get my head together” or “I want to be a fully actualized human being”) are neither helpful for evaluation of your progress and to know when you have achieved your goals.

With a profile of specific goals in view, you are ready to develop the short-term objectives that will be the stepping-stones to the achievement of your goals. As you do this, it is important to make the objectives observable or measurable in some way. You must have a clear vision of how you will know that you are making progress. This usually involves including a time frame for your goals and objectives. But be reasonable – no one changes overnight. To get started, for each specific long-term goal, you need to ask yourself.
