5 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN MAKING GOALS!!!

Specify the goal in detail and also all the specific details of the smaller goals on the way to the larger goal if it is a long duration goal.

Will you measure the achievement of the smaller goals as indicators that you are succeeding in reaching the long duration goal or what are the specific ways that you will know that you are in the process of succeeding or have succeeded in achieving your long duration goal?

Is your goal realistically attainable or do you have the time, money, and abilities to achieve those goals?

What is the approximate time duration for the achievement of the long duration goal and any relevant sub goals?

What kind of preparation do you need before embarking on the pursuit of a goal(s)?

THE TRUTH ABOUT AWARD+

Nonfiction-Award-04.2.3-Gold

Award: n. (a mark of recognition and/or a privilege) and/or less frequently a material reward given for achieving a goal(s)

An award is really a subset of all the rewards possible and the implied emphasis is on an award being a mark or recognition and/or a privilege given for achieving a goal(s). Material awards are also given occasionally but not as frequently as a mark of recognition and privileges.

THE TRUTH ABOUT GRADUATE*

graduate

Graduate: v. to certify adequate knowledge and/or skills to achieve a goal(s)

When you graduate someone then you certify that they have adequate knowledge and/or skills to do something which is often a job, the next school grade, or higher rank in an organization.

Graduation certificates can be forged and a graduating human may have actually cheated to get the graduating certificate so real proof of adequate knowledge and/or skills usually occurs on the job when a human is asked to perform to the best of his or her ability.

Nepotism appointments are sometimes unjust because the appointments or jobs were given on the basis of who you know more than on merit or on what you know and can do.

Many liberal arts graduates not being able to find jobs is symptomatic of the technological revolution which is replacing human jobs and making many graduation certificates rather useless.

It also turns out that book learning and certification is also not always a good indication of job performance which demands punctuality, dependability, competence, a work ethic, and certain basic social skills which book learning alone can’t provide. Experienced job applicants are often preferred over fresh graduates with seemingly impressive degrees but no work experience.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HOPELESSNESS*

hopelessness_logo

Hopelessness: n. sensing that a personally desired goal(s) and/or an event(s) is probably impossible to achieve

Hopelessness is when you wish something would happen but actually deeply feel that there is a very remote or even impossibility of it ever happening.

THE TRUTH ABOUT INADEQUACY*

maxresdefault (4)

Inadequacy: n. not having 100% of the requirements essential to an identified subset(s) and not achieving a goal(s)

If you can’t achieve a goal(s) then chances are great that there is some inadequacy which you will have to overcome. You may have inadequate knowledge, skills, experience, social connections, talent, or financial means to achieve your goal(s).

 

You can overcome your inadequacies in many cases if it is just an absence of knowledge, skills, or experience but in some cases there is no substitute for inborn talent, the right social connections, and the financial means to do it yourself or hire talented, socially connected humans to achieve your goal(s) for you.

THE TRUTH ABOUT METHOD+

methodlogo

Method: n. a frequently orderly frequently logical way of doing a subset(s) and/or how to achieve a goal(s)

A method is really a way of doing something or a way of achieving a goal(s).

There is frequently more than one way to do something and your personal way is your personal method. Your method may be more impulsive and spontaneous than someone else’s more logical method and may have more steps.

The efficiency of a method is determined by the minimum number of steps needed in the smallest amount of time.

A command for humans is frequently the fastest way to get someone to do something and there are many different ways to motivate a human into doing something(s).

In democracies compromise and cooperation is the preferred method for resolving problems and getting things done.

In dictatorial or tyrannical regimes conflict is frequently resolved with the use of force or the threat of force and this is even reflected in the family life of the culture where one spouse, usually the male, plays a dominant coercive role in family life.

The concept of equal rights and an attempt to minimize discrimination is methodology unique to western civilization and it is still not the preferred method of getting things done in most of the rest of the world.

Much of modern progress and innovation is the result of the scientific method being used in the world and it is unfortunate that the scientific method and its strength in prediction is not directly applicable to human morality and the study of human behavior.

The real reason that human behavior can’t be studied scientifically is that the definition of variables is too vague and there are too many variables to make rigorous math equations. Only statistical norms  or ballpark approximations are possible with no cause effect predictable relationships.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PLAN+

Plan_1430258338

Plan: v. to record and/or memorize a detailed series of actions and/or diagrams which will be used to help in achieving a subset(s) and/or goal(s) in the future

You can memorize and/or record a plan and use it to help you to build or make something or to help you to reach a desired goal(s). There are military, organizational, business, architectural, software, etc. plans which are all subject to changes later on if your goals are not successfully achieved the first time around.

Plan ahead is wise advice for anyone who is doing complicated things to achieve desired results. Not planning ahead will frequently result in failure even though many plans are changed along the way to make goal(s) achievement possible since many plans are not perfect to begin with.

Good plans require much knowledge, skills, and experience and successful strategies and tactics are what experienced leaders are good at and good tactics are what experienced workers excel in.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROCESS+

Process

Process

Process: v. to do a systematic series of actions which can be described with a flow chart with sometimes infrequent nonsystematic actions included to achieve a goal(s)

Machine processes are seldom interrupted but human processes are interrupted with bathroom breaks, eating and drinking breaks, rest breaks, and emergency or unexpected interruptions along the way.

Processes can frequently be made more efficient and success here can be a money and time saver.

THE TRUTH ABOUT UNPERSUASIVE*

maxresdefault

Unpersuasive: adj. not getting agreement that a goal(s) is worth achieving

If you are unpersuasive then chances are great that you have not convinced someone that what you are saying is true and further you will not get a commitment from that human in doing anything about a given circumstance. If you think you have a goal(s) worth achieving then you will not get any helpers or followers if you are unpersuasive.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TROUBLE*

trouble-sign

Trouble: n. having adversity while trying to achieve a goal(s)

 

Being in trouble basically means that you are suffering from some bad circumstances which you hope to get out of in the near future if possible. Trouble is usually not a disaster or crisis situation and it is something which all of us must handle from time to time since life is not always smooth sailing and trouble free.

THE TRUTH ABOUT UNSYSTEMATIC*

a3020024370_16

Unsystematic: adj. relatively random attempts at achieving a goal(s)

 

When you try to achieve a goal(s) based on luck, a hit or miss approach, or a try it and see approach then you are definitely not being systematic about it with accurate  organized planning.

Not systematic would be how most humans would describe unsystematic but its true nature is much randomness or random behavior done trying to achieve a goal(s).

12 GOOD WORK HABIT TIPS!!!

Do-Good-Work

Arrive 15 minutes early at work and for important appointments and about 5 minutes early for unimportant appointments. This promotes punctuality.

Spend a little time thinking ahead and make plans to divide your work into sequential smaller parts if possible and then rush to complete them one at a time. Each completion will give you a sense of accomplishment and the motivation to move on to the next task.

Take a handful  of 3 to 5 minute breaks during the day to relieve some stress if you are feverishly working to make a deadline.

About 80% of jobs are filled by networking and not direct advertising so keep in touch with humans in your field of work which may be useful sources of employment information in the future.

Concentrate on doing what you feel you are good at and try to delegate responsibility in areas that you are not that good at.

To avoid the probability of job burnout break up a frantic pace with at least one 20 minute break and do something totally different during the day which need not be an eating break but can be.

If you begin to feel sleepy in the afternoon then do some physical in place exercise to recharge your body energy.

Always exceed your time estimates by about 10% so that if you have unforeseen problems you will still finish on time and maintain your reputation as being dependable and not under delivering on promises.

Make sure your boss is aware of your contributions to the job and if this means speaking up more at meetings then do so since it might affect your bonuses or promotion potential.

If you are not very good at remembering important things then document or write down important events or information at work which you will or may have to remember in the future.

Don’t gossip

If you need something important to do your work successfully don’t be afraid to ask for it and tell management what you need and why.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROGRESS+

images (1)

Progress: n. improvement and/or growth and/or development which is a successful movement(s) towards a goal(s)

Are you making any progress? You may be half way there on your goal to reach a physical destination or half way through medical school. In either a simple or complicated goal you can usually assess how far you are in reaching it or how much progress you are making towards it.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try you may not be able to reach a goal such as getting a job promotion but usually by making adjustments or gaining more knowledge or skills you can generally reach the goal unless it is a totally unrealistic one and depends on you having some basic talent which you lack.

Not everyone wants to progress in life, especially if they are happy with what they have but many humans have a desire to improve or experience new adventures and call it progress. We all progress towards eventual death so it is wise to ask yourself from time to time-Am I happy with the progress which I am making or should I make some minor or major adjustments in my progress?

Sometimes making progress is simply a matter of eliminating bad habits or replacing them with good habits. Stop eating unhealthy food, stop smoking, stop bad relationships, and quit a bad job. Put in positive terms this may mean eating more organic food, replacing smoking with healthy snacks, refreshments, or meditation, finding better friends or a new significant other, and landing a better job.

Sometimes progress means eliminating barriers or working around them. Your barriers may be an inadequate education, a bad personality, few useful skills, or humans in positions which you would want to be in. You can improve on your personal barriers or eliminate them to some extent but if human barriers are your problem then you may not be able to eliminate them or work around them.

Other humans can greatly impede your progress and if you can’t avoid them or drop them for better ones then you may have to deal with them until they leave or go elsewhere. Who you know is sometimes more important than what you know so try to get to know better humans with good contacts who can potentially help you in the future.

There are short duration goals and long duration goals and the smart humans try to make progress in both by spending some time working on a daily or regular basis focusing on long duration goals too. Not many want to seriously work on long duration goals but if you do then you will probably be one who will have some genuine true successes in their lives which will make the journey of life even more satisfying.

Live for today only and you may be derailed from your path abruptly one day and be at a loss of what to do next. Live for today and tomorrow and you will still have a destination to go to if you get derailed from your current normal path in life.

The key to making real progress in life is to live life in the present but to make some future plans or putting in some current effort for future goal achievement.

Just moving forward is making progress but HOW you move forward or progress is a very important question which you should try answering yourself since there are so many ways of doing so.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REQUIREMENTS+

requirements

Requirement: n. objectively needing an essential subset(s) to achieve a goal(s)

A requirement is something essential needed in a human or a task to achieve a goal(s) successfully. You may have subjective desires such as a tall human with blue eyes or a blue work area but these are usually not considered true requirements to get the job done or a goal(s) achieved.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PURSUIT+

Pursuit-Logo

Pursuit: n. maintaining an activity(s) which is used to achieve a goal(s)

Pursuit really means trying to achieve a goal(s).

Historically humans primarily pursued food or grew it and it is only recently that humans are mostly pursuing money, material possessions, and many leisure pastimes. Our priorities have changed and too few are devoting most of their energy and money to healthy food which historically was the most important consideration in human lives.

We are losing touch with essential reality and fewer and fewer are living a healthy lifestyle.

Humans also pursue power and these days it seems that the more money that you have then the more power you have. The financial system has been corrupted to short duration profit considerations and not long duration wise investment in high quality healthy food, drink, and sustainable quality goods.

Pursuing a moral lifestyle is no longer high on the priority list and has resulted in many dysfunctional lifestyles and the breakdown of healthy family life because too many are steeped in the live for today and do only what you like philosophy. Profligate irresponsible lifestyles are leading to profligate irresponsible leadership which is threatening to bankrupt the nation and cause more misery in the world.

On the brighter side science is no longer pushing the big bang creation mythology and is making new discoveries in microbiology, especially the importance of healthy gut bacteria, which potentially will help humanity in the long duration. It’s mostly about healthy food and drink and we must come to realize that chemicals toxic to insects, plants, and bacteria are also toxic to the human body so dependent upon healthy gut bacteria unaltered by toxic chemicals even in minute amounts.

Nuclear war is still a relatively remote possibility as more and more nations are competing economically and not militarily.

The internet is increasing worldwide communication and is encouraging nations to think internationally and not just nationally. We are all responsible for what happens to this precious planet and only through international cooperation is there any hope that biodiversity, the wilderness, or wild species will survive.

THE TRUTH ABOUT WORTH+

Know-your-worth

Worth: n. having adequate meritorious and/or useful characteristics to achieve a goal(s) and/or a monetary value assessment

The worth of an object can usually be relatively easily determined but when it comes to evaluating the worth of a human or wilderness then assigning a monetary value is not that simple.

Human worth is usually judged by meritorious proven behavior and number of useful characteristics needed to achieve a goal(s) when merit has not yet been proven.

Worthy or desirable characteristics of humans are trustworthiness, integrity, friendliness, empathy, etc. which can’t be directly quantified or given a monetary value even though most will agree that a trustworthy friendly individual has more worth than an untrustworthy unfriendly human.

Competence is easier to judge the worth of and frequently the more competent and trustworthy or worthy a human is then they are the ones with the best reputations and they frequently also make more money in any profession which they chose to pursue.

The worth of a human is judged by personality and one’s ability to achieve desired goals.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TIREDNESS***

ls_noonsleep_post_1313570914

Tiredness: n. sensing not having much potential energy in the body to achieve a goal(s) and/or do an event(s) and frequently desiring to stop the samer achievement(s) and/or event(s) and/or to be bored with fatigue

Being physically tired is what we all experience and we just seem not to have enough energy to do something efficiently or well.

Mental fatigue or tiredness is also possible whether from boredom or just doing a task too repetitively or doing something too long.

“I’m tired of that” does not always efficiently convey what we mean but it is generally assumed that whatever it is we don’t want to do it any more or we just need a break from it.

Being tired after work historically meant being physically tired but in the modern world being tired after work usually means that we are mentally tired after much stress and mental effort on the job.

Energy drinks are an artificial way of getting our bodies to do more work after feeling tired mentally and sometimes physically. If you are tired on a daily basis and habitually so then maybe it is time for you to eat healthy food and drink, get enough sleep in your life, and take work breaks to cure your tiredness naturally.

THE TRUTH ABOUT RESULTS***

results

Result: n. a (reaction(s) and/or conclusion(s)) and/or (effect(s) and/or achieved goal(s) which sometimes is not what was expected)

A result can be a reaction(s), a conclusion(s), an effect(s), and it can be an achieved goal(s) which sometimes is not what was expected.

We usually like to get good results but unfortunately we sometimes have to deal with bad results too. When we get bad results then we can either choose to ignore them or do something over a different way to try and get good results. Sometimes getting good results is just a matter of practicing something over and over again until we get it right.

We are constantly getting results in our lives and the smart human adjusts his or her behavior to get the best results possible. There are short duration and long duration results and the long duration good results are the hardest to achieve because they frequently require a lengthy investment of time, effort, money, and achievement.

Not getting the results you want in life? Adjust your goals to the right ones and you may start getting better results or satisfying goal achievement.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PURPOSE***

mormon-purpose-of-life1-e1389802775451

Purpose: n. a goal(s)

Some humans complain that they have no purpose in life.

If you eat, drink, sleep, and work then you have goals in your life and you have purpose. Sure, you may not have any earth shaking goals to achieve but you are surviving and that is a laudable goal to have.

You can always improve on your goals. If you like to eat then you can improve by eating healthier or gradually switching to eating more organic food. If you don’t like your job then you can try improving it by learning new skills and knowledge so that you qualify for a better job.

Feeling alone? Find a new friend by joining a club or organization which supports a cause or helps humans. Volunteer and you will find volunteer friends and potential friends among those whom you are trying to help.

I am semi retired so I decided to share a lifetime of knowledge by blogging.  I am learning something new almost on a daily basis and sharing the new knowledge also with my fellow bloggers.

No matter how purposeless your life seems to be you can almost always find something new to do or learn about. Don’t have purpose in your life? Start reading things which may interest you and discover a bucket list of things which you still haven’t done in your life and can still do or set as your future goals to achieve.

As long as you are setting small and/or large goals in life to achieve then you have purpose in life and if you continue to be healthy and alive then you can proceed to fulfill those purposes or goals.

Finally your purpose in life should be to live a moral life since your relationships with other humans will improve greatly. In a nutshell being moral means- except in emergency situations-don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder. Follow this modern moral code and your life will improve eventually if not right away, especially with fellow humans.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ATTEMPTS***

attempt-thumb

Attempt: v. to try with a relatively low probability of achievement

Attempting is not only trying but trying something which has a relatively low probability of success or trying something with much uncertainty involved. An attempt frequently results in failure but we are tempted by the possibility that success will mean a very beneficial outcome for us. Many attempts are half-hearted or with little commitment and we frequently invest very little of our time, energy, and money because of our sense of uncertainty.

I attempted windsurfing in high winds and rather quickly gave up realizing that I was just not strong enough and coordinated enough to do it successfully. I could have tried with a smaller sail but that meant more investment of time, energy, and money which wasn’t something which I wanted to do on vacation in Hawaii.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TEAMWORK

Teamwork

Teamwork: n. interacting with more than one human trying to achieve the same goal(s).

The ideal team is competent individuals who know their skill set and can function relatively independently towards a common goal(s).

In the real world there are team members who need some assistance in the form of information and/or guidance to do the work successfully and this frequently requires input from the team leader and other members of the team. Feedback during the common goal(s) achievement is very important so that the work proceeds in an orderly timely way.

Sharing information and knowledge amongst team members is frequently also necessary so the interaction of the team is seldom a one on one interaction.

What may surface during teamwork is that an additional team member may be necessary or a current team member needs to be replaced with a better one.

In sports teamwork physical ability takes precedence with overall strategic advice incorporated into the game and knowing how to adjust to opposing team tactics. Sports teamwork is much more impulsive than corporate teamwork and doesn’t last that long unless you incorporate the time spent planning before a game too.

Keeping a team emotionally motivated despite inevitable failures along the way is very important and the team leader must have emotional IQ as well as a pretty good knowledge of what has to be done to complete a goal(s) successfully. It also helps if the team members are emotionally mature and not interested in goofing off, getting others to do their work, and backstabbing coworkers.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHALLENGE

challenges

Challenge: v. to try to achieve a goal(s) which will take an above average quantity of effort to achieve and frequently does not have a great probability of being achieved and/or to ask to compete in a subset(s)

In life there are many challenges. We are asked to compete with others to see who can read, run, or do a task the fastest. We compete with others for grades, jobs, and spouses and have many other challenges or goals in life which we try to fulfill to the best of our ability.

Individuals compete with one another but so do organizations and nations. Life is filled with challenges along the way and some of us do a better job of achieving them than others because we are born talented or with better physical and mental abilities and circumstances.

Other humans will challenge you in life but it is more important to challenge yourself and set worthwhile goals to achieve in your life.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SUCCESS

success2

The truth is that you are successful if you make goals and achieve them no matter how small or large the goals may be.

Some derelicts and cancer patients find living another day to be a success and at the other extreme some don’t consider themselves to be successful until they become very wealthy or a celebrity.

Most of us have relatively small successes such as getting a good job, marrying your soul mate, and being able to afford the small pleasures in life which may be pleasant pastimes, hobbies, and good friends.

The two greatest barriers to success is that you don’t have enough natural talent to excel at something you ideally want to achieve or you have many bad habits which cause a string of failures at trying to achieve worthwhile goals. You can’t do much to change an absence of talent but through hard work, determination, self-motivation, and realistic optimism you can almost always improve your lifestyle and make your life more successful.

To become qualitatively more successful set priorities in your life and divide up goal achievement into smaller steps. Achieve some easy goals first to gain some confidence and then try to achieve the harder goals which will take more time, determination, self-motivation, and realistic optimism.

Worthwhile success is infrequently achieved without some failure and some of the greatest successes have come from humans who have failed a thousand times and finally achieve that elusive goal after incredible persistence and determination. Success is infrequently a straight and narrow easy path but one with many unexpected twists and turns which frequently take you momentarily off a straight path to achievement.

If you are realistic in your goal setting then you will have more achievement or successes in your life. Don’t make any pie in the sky goals which have no or very little probability of ever being achieved!!!!!!

If you live the average lifespan for a male or female then you can consider yourself to be a success because many bad addictive behaviors such as drugs and alcoholism, risky living, careless accidents, and unhealthy eating can shorten your lifespan considerably.

Remember, you are a success if you just live to see another day no matter how shitty your life may seem at the moment.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MOTIVATION

motivation-board

Motivation: n. stimulating and/or preventing a behavior(s) with a subset(s) which is frequently done with (the promise of a reward and/or punishment) and/or (a command and/or an encouragement(s)) and/or a threat

Humans and things can motivate our behavior or create desires which make us do things. A desire arises and we either fulfill that desire right away or we delay the fulfillment of the desire until a later time.

A desire to do something or not do something is probably motivated by a reward and/or punishment and ultimately it is a desire to achieve a goal.

Many of us have simple goals such as eating, drinking, working, and enjoying life with pleasant pastimes.

Others also have complex goals such as making much money, starting a business or organization, learning complicated skills for a high paying profession, and writing a best seller.

Staying motivated or maintaining a desire for a long duration trying to achieve complex goals is very hard because it frequently means much sustained hard work, many failures, much support from other humans, and an undying devotion which few are willing to make. Unrelenting self-motivation is necessary to achieve long duration complex goals and it helps if you have talent which makes the achievement much easier.

The success of other humans and ongoing support from family, close friends, teachers, coworkers, coaches, mentors, inspirational leaders, and role models can all be sources of motivation which keeps you trying to achieve important goals even in the face of much hardship and setbacks.

Not frequently mentioned is the importance that emotional motivation plays in successful human relationships and even relationships on the job. Life has many setbacks and if you find a significant other who supports you emotionally when you are struggling with personal or job problems then you are truly being helped or supported. If you reciprocate the emotional support then this can create a symbiotic relationship which will thrive through the good and bad times.

On the job having a boss who cares about maintaining your emotional optimism by appropriate praise, always acknowledging the contribution you make and not stealing it from you, delegating some authority to you, letting you improve your skills on the job, and sometimes saying something good about you in the presence of coworkers can be effective in giving you a sense of purpose on the job. This will make you feel good enough even though you may not be rewarded with as much money as you think that you deserve as a reward.

CONCLUSION:

We have many desires in our lives which motivate us to do good and bad things and our priorities may change in life depending upon the circumstances. That is why it is important to try and find good humans to associate with who motivate us to do good things and not bad things, moral things and not immoral ones.

Learning to prioritize our desires and controlling them successfully is a major key to happiness. Uncontrolled impulsive desires, especially if they are bad, can lead to a life of misery and turmoil so try to change those impulsive bad desires before they ruin a potentially good life.

There are many rewards and punishments in life. If you are smart then you will try to optimize your rewards and minimize the punishments with a realistic appraisal of your abilities so that you don’t crash and burn trying to do the impossible or  desiring what you can’t have.

THE TRUTH ABOUT OPPORTUNITY

325px-Diagram_of_equal_opportunity_formal_model

Opportunity: n. a circumstance(s) which makes the achievement of a goal(s) more probable and frequently the circumstance(s) itself has been a goal(s) so that a further goal(s) is more probable

 

Be ready when opportunity knocks. Some fortunate humans have gotten a great education, have good genes or good memories, have the right connections, and have many opportunities to start out on a successful career path and relatively easily find their soul mate. They indeed have made themselves ready for opportunity and get it sooner because they were probably born into a rich, smart, caring family with good social connections.

 

Most of us unfortunately have to settle for a mediocre education, have average memories, land the best job which we can find, and hopefully bump into a compatible member of the opposite sex.

 

Then we find out that the only way to find better opportunities is to work hard, change jobs, learn new skills and knowledge, and make new contacts with humans who may help us to land a better future job. We find the going tough and it may take many years before we get a great opportunity to knock on our door.

 

For many of us that great opportunity never surfaces because we are so wrapped up in the struggle to survive that we never really have the time to prepare for the opportunity which we really would like to have. Sometimes the opportunity which we are hoping for never knocks because we have set our goals too high and they are just not realistic goals because we just don’t have enough inborn talent and persistence.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PERSEVERANCE

315791778_1366907811

Perseverance: n. extreme persistence in trying to achieve a goal(s) and pursuing it much beyond the point where close to 100% of people would stop. Perseverance may be called an addiction to a goal(s) which has a very low probability of being achieved.  The perseverance limit is a lifetime.

Lifelong dedication to something is perseverance and there are plenty of inspiring examples of very talented humans with unsuccessful beginnings who made it big eventually and even became famous. Thomas Edison, Milton Hershey, Steve Jobs, J. K. Rowling, and Simon Cowell are just a few of the truly outstanding examples of great entrepreneurial success which demanded much perseverance.

The common human must be satisfied with lesser achievements through perseverance such as a lifelong monogamous marriage, lifelong friendship, lifelong dedication to a religion or cause such as wildlife conservation, a lifelong dedication to a career such as being a writer, lawyer, or doctor, and a lifelong dedication to eating healthy and exercising in moderation.

A lifelong dedication to family, friends, job, cause, or healthy living is what the common human is capable of and if these goals do not inspire you then you will probably be leading a rather empty lonely life.

THE TRULY SUCCESSFUL LIFE IS MAKING AND ACHIEVING MORE AND BETTER GOALS

images (3)

We all would like to be happy and feel that we are being successful in life. Few realize that this means making and achieving more and better goals.

Making goals is the hardest part because most of us are trapped in our old and frequently bad habits or old goals which we repeat over and over again and don’t make any progress in life.

The key to making sometimes new and better goals is to research your present activities and determine if they are going to lead to progress in your life or just the same old daily routine. If you find that you are operating in a dead end with little hope for progress in the future then you should change something in your daily routine so that you can escape or improve your circumstances.

This frequently means improving your knowledge and skills through further research and education and making new contacts with humans who can potentially connect you with better opportunities.

Achieving a necessary change in your daily routine will require much optimistic self-motivation which means doing something new and useful and making it part of your daily routine. You can start by prioritizing your goals and rescheduling your time to concentrate on what you feel is most important in your life and ignoring or excluding or reducing the bad or trivial habits in your life.

A better goal is frequently developing a better habit or doing an activity which will improve your life and not letting your life stagnate in old fruitless frequently boring repetitive activities.

The foundation for progress or making and achieving new goals is an insatiable curiosity and desire to learn new skills and new knowledge.

Finally there are distant or ultimate goals which can be achieved by making many goals along the way and you should educate yourself on what these intermediate goals are or should be if you want to reach your ultimate realistic goal.

CONCLUSION:

The successful life is struggling to eliminate the bad habits and old goals which you are reliving and trying to replace them with better habits or new goals which you try to pursue on a daily basis.

My evergreen book HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY will show you in detail how you can make and achieve sometimes new and better goals or improve the goals which you are working on in the present.

6 IMPORTANT TRUTHS ABOUT SUPER SUCCESSFUL HUMANS

Bill-Gates-4-612x300

Many of us think that all that you have to do to become super successful is to change your bad habits and adopt some good constructive ones. The truth is that the odds of becoming super successful are stacked against you unless you are born “lucky” and have some of the following characteristics and circumstances.

 

You are born to rich smart parents

Money and a very good memory is a great help which doesn’t guarantee super success but it can make your journey to success much easier if you apply yourself properly and learn useful social and job skills. High IQ just means that you have a very good memory which you should be able to apply to the real world if you have smarts or practical brain processing ability. There are idiot savants with phenomenal memory who can’t use their great gift in society very well but this is an extreme exception to the rule that very good memory and talent rules.

 

Your parents are usefully educated

A definite asset is having smart parents who can be exceptional role models and it also means that they probably studied hard and had better than average memories.

 

You were born attractive

Attractive humans in general earn 3% to 4% more than not so attractive ones. An investment in plastic surgery may be a realistic option if you have some glaring unattractive features.

 

You are an only child

Statistics show that single offspring imitate adult parents more and are socially more mature sooner as a result. They also tend to stay in school longer and frequently have more self-esteem.

 

You are born in or move to the right country

You need to be born in or to travel to a country which offers entrepreneurial opportunity to the new generation based on effort and merit such as the US and China.

 

You are male and white

Feminists and ethnic groups may disagree with this fact and in the near future maybe gender and ethnic origin will not matter that much in the struggle for super success. Talent, merit, and effort may dominate the landscape of the super successful in the future without much gender or ethnic bias but we still have a long way to go to achieve those idealistic goals.

CONCLUSION:

There are some exceptions to the rule but the super successful frequently are  very talented, have very good memories, are attractive, usefully educated, hardworking, and socially competent individuals. The talent, very good memory, and attractiveness you are born with and the useful education, hard work, and social competence is something which you must acquire in your life or you will not become super successful.

DEPRESSION OR LIFE WITHOUT SATISFYING AND MOTIVATING GOALS

depressed

If you are depressed then you don’t need medication or mind altering drugs but you need to find satisfying and motivating goals which you can commit to.

Some are depressed because of no job, a dead end job, a dysfunctional family life, an absence of good relationships, because of bad health, or a feeling of helplessness and inadequacy to cope with life’s problems. Most depressed humans don’t need drugs but need a radical change in their lifestyle. Psychiatry and psychology are frequently inadequate solutions to a lifestyle problem of sad pessimism rather than a desirable independent optimistic selfsufficient lifestyle.

Primitive tribes almost have no mental illness and depression because they are actively involved in a purposeful life which may be difficult but it is goal oriented and generally satisfying. Modern inactivity, unsatisfying activity, being trapped in repetitive sad thoughts, leading seemingly trivial repetitive lives without active goal achievement and a sense of accomplishment, or seemingly insoluble lingering bad problems is what makes many humans “mentally ill” or behaviorally dysfunctioning and depression is one of the more frequent manifestations of it.

Counseling rarely helps because it merely suggests changes in lifestyle but does not help in eliminating difficult to lose bad habits which should be replaced by good habits which don’t lead to depression. If you are doing things which make you depressed then you have to change to good habits which do not lead to depression. Radical behavior modification is the solution and if you are a young adult or an adult then change is going to be a difficult challenge because most of your life has programmed you to live a depressing dependent lifestyle with minimum selfcontrol over your life.

To get out of your depression you need to find and make new goals to pursue which will lead to the satisfaction of pursuit and accomplishment and will further motivate you to make more goals with hopefully satisfying feelings of pursuit and achievement. Knowing that you are in the process of achieving new worthwhile goals will bring satisfaction in the present and achieving the goals will give satisfaction and motivation to continue with new goal setting in the future.

If you are depressed a healthy body and mind should be your primary goals which means eating healthy, a little exercise, and getting new knowledge and/or skills on a daily basis. Once your body is healthy your mind will follow if you help it along with new knowledge from the internet on finding and achieving goals or finding and achieving solutions to your problems.

This next example probably doesn’t apply to any blogger but illustrates what can be done in the most desperate of life’s circumstances.

If you are depressed and unemployed and destitute then get some help from welfare or live with someone on welfare and make yourself useful by doing household tasks or caring for the offspring.  If you have relatives or family then move in with them and make yourself useful by helping with household tasks and acquire new knowledge and skills while looking for employment on a regular basis. Find any job and commute by walking, bicycle, bus, or scooter until you can afford better transportation.

Share living quarters with others until you are making enough money to live alone. Once you have enough money for a computer then you can reeducate yourself with new knowledge and skills necessary for a better job.

If you have no motivation to improve yourself then start getting used to living a life on welfare for the rest of your life because jobs will get even scarcer in the new technological 21st century. If you are homeless and have no shelter then start getting used to eating out of commercial restaurant dumpsters and make the best of it by finding used clothing from charities.

If you are anti-social and want someone to provide you with food, clothing, and shelter and you can’t survive on your own then do the unthinkable and commit a crime and go to jail where they will take care of your basic needs.

Most of us will not become so desperate that crime will be the only option. For most of us, once you find out what goals you are interested in, no matter how small, then you can start committing to them and start having purpose in your life and your depression will gradually disappear if you are eating healthy and get in some occasional physical and mental exercise!!!!!! Whatever your situation in life, try to remain eternally optimistic and self motivate yourself to do things which make the best out of the situation which you are in.

6 MOTIVATIONAL WORDS BEGINNING WITH THE LETTERS Q AND R

images

QUALITY

A goal of helping very good (humans and/or goods) and/or services is quality and it will frequently increase efficiency and achievement in the long duration.

REFLECTION

Reflection or thinking after every failure and/or success in achieving a goal(s) is important if one is to change or improve on the past mistakes which are responsible for not achieving a goal(s) and/or a plan for future successes.

RELIABLE

Reliable behavior or proven systematic actions by people or machines guarantees that a goal(s) will be achieved with a great probability over a relatively long duration.

RESPECT

Respect as a goal can tentatively start by holding an important social position but enduring respect can only come about by having earned a good social position through a series of successful meritorious trustworthy deeds.

REVOLUTION

When government ceases to protect its citizens from too much immorality or criminal behavior or widespread famine then revolution is highly probable in that society.  Revolution is frequently the means to a goal which tries to change unacceptable governmental injustices frequently through force or great relatively peaceful but angry protests.

RISK

Risk is the probability that you will not reach a goal(s).  The greater the risk the less is the probability that you will achieve that goal(s).  As a general principle it may seem that the greater the risk then the greater is the reward but realistically one should realize that many great risky goals are not worth it because the probability of achieving those goals is frequently too low.
