Goal Setting

Meaningful goals are vital in providing a sense of purpose and direction. Healthy goals influence our cognitive development. Goal setting is the examination of one’s relationship to the intended result. This would involve the attainability, complexity, satisfaction of fulfillment, and clarity of the goal at hand. The reading of motivational quotes alone will not secure the conquest of achieving goals. However, it is empirically supported that with accountability reinforcement increases the level of probability of ascertaining one’s meaningful objective.
