The Importance of Goal Setting

I was reminded of a message that was ministered by my pastor last night. He spoke from the topic “What Made Jesus a Business Success.” One of the points made was that Jesus was here and he had goals. His goals were to spread the gospel, open blind eyes, heal the sick, and most importantly die on the cross. He came to fulfill a purpose. His vision was clear. This shows that we should have a clear and definite purpose. We should know and plan where we are going.

When it comes to goal setting, it’s important to identify what you want to see happen. You can’t move if you don’t know where you’re going. Here are a few things to consider when goal setting:

Write your goals

Having them sitting in your head is only going to make it harder to accomplish. You need to be able to see them in physical form so that you can move on them.

“Write the Vision and Make it Plain.” – Habakkuk 2:2

Set a deadline

When do you want to obtain this goal? This is important because it challenges you and it motivates you to put the shovel in the ground and start digging.

Write a detailed plan

How are you going to achieve this goal? What do you have to do? What people do you have to link up with? What obstacles are you going to face? What skills are needed?

Create a task list

When the plan is written, make it simple by breaking it down into daily tasks. Work from this task list everyday. This makes your days purposeful.

See yourself achieving your goals

I recommend that you do this everyday. Set aside a time where you can just imagine your goal being achieved.  You may have to post pictures around your house of the goal. I personally have a picture of my goal achieved on the wallpaper of my phone.


This is just a small piece of goal setting.
