5 Most Common Goal Setting Mistakes To Avoid



Goal setting is a common process to achieve success. However, many times, people make some common mistakes while setting goals. These mistakes lead to not achieving the desired success and loss of all hope. 

“Indeed, we all make many mistakes.
 For if we could control our tongues, 
we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way. “ 
James 3:2, NLT.

Listed below are five very common mistakes that people make while setting goals.
  • The first mistake people often make is setting fuzzy goals. For instance, I want to make a big bungalow. These types of goals are fuzzy as there is no definite idea to start and about the result. These types of goals only lead to obfuscation and unhappiness for not achieving success
  • The second major mistake is setting deadlines that are hard to meet. Estimation is a mathematical analysis that very few people have the capacity to do accurately. Some people set very tight deadlines thinking to achieve success quickly. However, they do not realize that tight deadlines are hard to meet and you can easily commit a mistake due to the pressure of meeting deadlines.
  • The third major mistake is that people often set boundaries when trying to achieve goals. Limiting yourself does not allow you to grow in terms of experience and encouragement. Only stretching yourself over the boundaries can enrich you with the qualities necessary for the achievement of success
  • The fourth major mistake that people make is that they discuss matters of importance to achieve a goal with the wrong people. They make the whole process more confusing and at times negative comments or wrong comments can make you demotivated. Further, they tend to give wrong suggestions, which make it even more difficult for you to achieve success.
  • Last but not the least, the fifth mistake most people do, is not having a proper action plan to reach their goal. In other words, you cannot call a thing goal unless you have a plan set. Then it is merely a dream. Moreover, you cannot expect to make a plan within ten minutes. It takes time, patience, hard work, and detailed research to chalk out a plan in order to achieve a goal. In most cases, a goal remains a dream because people cannot make a well-detailed plan and execute it accurately. Executing it with integrity at the right time is important in the achievement of success.

Thus, here you have learned about the most common mistakes that people make when achieving their goals. You're no longer ignorant of the common mistakes in goal setting. Only if you can learn the mistakes and keep them in mind, and avoid them, then you can achieve success easily.

“People ruin their lives by their own foolishness 
and then are angry at the LORD.” 
Proverbs 19:3, NLT.

Here's a video explaining the 5 common mistakes, people make when setting their goals.
