Benefits of Setting Goals For The New Year

You hear a lot about the importance and benefits of setting goals. If you enjoy reading about success and accomplishment as much as I do, you’ll find a common thread among successful people is that they all set goals [without exception].

Many people feel as if they’re adrift in the world. They work hard, but they don’t seem to get anywhere worthwhile. A key reason that they feel this way is that they haven’t spent enough time thinking about what they want from life. They haven’t set themselves formal goals.

Would you go out on a major journey with no real idea of your destination? Probably not!

Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future. For motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality. Setting goals is what puts your life into real action mode. Setting goals allows you to choose how you want to move through life.

The TEFCAS Success Formula

Have you failed many times in life? Do you know that failure can actually be a very good thing? Failure is actually an integral part of learning and growth. In fact, I like the saying in NLP that ‘there’s no such thing as failure, only feedback’.

no such thing as failure

Failure = Feedback

I first came across the TEFCAS Success Formula from one of Tony Buzan’s mind-mapping books. Once you understand the TEFCAS formula, you’ll realize that it’s actually our natural way of learning and getting better in whatever areas that we want to master. Many things that we’ve learned in life were mastered through failures, we weren’t born with those skills eg. riding a bike, playing sports, even walking.

Are You Living In Your Strengths?

One of the most invaluable discoveries you can ever find out about yourself is your strengths. If you’re truly able to answer “What are my strengths?”, you’re on your way to fulfilment and satisfaction in work and life.

Two years ago, I came across the StrengthsFinder 2.0 book which was also a ‘strengths’ assessment system. The key take away of the book is this: Your talents are enduring and unique, and your greatest potential for growth is in the area of your greatest strength.

Unfortunately, we’ve been conditioned to think first of identifying our weaknesses. For example, parents usually point out the areas in the report card where their children need to improve. All self-improvement books focus on improving our weak spots.

How Much Time You’ve Got?

Watched the film In Time starring Justine Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried last night and thought the overall story concept was very intriguing. Its storyline is set in the future when the aging gene is switched off when people reach the age of 25. Time becomes the currency which people use for buying and selling. Their arms are embedded with an internal digital clock to keep track on how much time they’ve got, as the digits slowly tick down to zero. The rich earns “decades” and practically lives forever and their pace of life is rather slow. The poor negotiates and hurries through daily activities. They often borrow, beg or steal enough hours to survive and make it through the day.

While the movie is just so so for me, my mind was captured by its unique concept of time as the ultimate currency. I was wondering what is it like if we were to live our lives one day at a time, not being guaranteed being given another day unless we “deserve” it? We often take our years and decades for granted, procrastinating through life, living like we’re immortals. What if, like the poor in the movie, we’re kept on our toes everyday, every hour and even minutes to make every moment count? It was a sobering thought for me.
