Have you ever felt that you’re drifting from day to day without any sense of direction? Or are you someone with firm ambitions for your career, family or sporting achievements?

Our ambitions are often many and varied, and can be big or small. So, why do we struggle to achieve them? Often, we fail because we haven’t made and followed a definite plan for our success.

In this Skillbook, you’ll learn how to create just such a plan, based on high-quality goals. We’ll take you through:

  • How you can use goal setting to realize your ambitions while building your self-confidence and motivation.
  • How to break lifetime goals down into manageable shorter-term ones.
  • What SMART goals are, and how you can use them to increase your chances of success.
  • The importance of reviewing your goals, checking your progress toward them, and looking out for any obstacles in your path.

If you’re ready to apply careful thought and follow the process step-by-step, you’ll likely make great progress in turning your dreams into reality.
