Setting SMART Goals and Achieving Success with BAR strategy.

What is the goal?

You can define it as “An aim or desired result” is called a goal. But, have you ever thought.
• What should the goal be like?
• How can a plan be achieved in the right way?
• How can we achieve our goal in less time?
Precisely saying, the basic formula for goal setting is “WWH.” Have you guessed it? It is
Why?
• What?
• How?
We will explain each factor in detail. Are you ready to explore the basic formula of success? Great!
Why
This factor is the driving force. It is the fuel for achieving your goal. Does its intensity determine whether the chances of achieving the goal are higher or not?
So, kindly ask these questions yourself before setting a goal.
• Why do I want this to happen?
• Is this my need or passion?
• Am I planning to do this just because of society?
• Am I ready to face challenges?
• Does this goal have a higher purpose behind it?
Chances of achieving a goal become higher when it is your inspiration instead of temporary external motivation. We just become lazy when we don’t have a passion for something. You should have a burning desire; otherwise, you will procrastinate!
What
At this stage, you should be clear about what you want to do? Precisely define your goal, and there should be no ambiguity in it. After determining your plan, check it. Is it a SMART goal or not?

S: Specific

You should not mix two or more two goals. A goal must be defined precisely and understandable by anyone with basic knowledge of that field. If not, then you need to rewrite or rethink it. In this way, you will be more focused.

M: Measurable

It is essential. Human beings stay motivated when they see results, and positive results keep them on track. So, your goal should be measurable too. For this, you should define the time limit for a purpose. Only, in this case, will it be possible to measure success after suitable periods.
Example
A man’s goal is to earn $1,000 in a month. It is possible to measure his success in terms of money.
Contrarily, a man’s goal is to become slim. What is the problem with his goal? Yes, there is no limit defined for it, e.g., 5 kg, 10 kg, etc. How will he measure his success? So, the chances of achieving these vague goals are next to impossible.

A: Action-oriented

There should be some action plan clearly defined for the goal.
Consider the above-mentioned example, “earn $1,000 in a month”. It is a precisely well-defined goal, but how will fulfill it? He should have an action-oriented plan for that too. Otherwise, it is like wishing to go to another side of the river without any medium.

R: Realistic

It would help if you made your goals higher but stayed grounded in reality. Must consider the availability of your resources, knowledge, and time.
Example
A person has a poor sense of humor and aims to become a famous entertainer.

T: Time-Based

There should be a time limit defined for your goal too.
“My goal is to lose 5kg in 30 days (from January 25 – February 25).”
It is an example of a SMART goal. Why? Because this goal is specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and time-based.

How

At this point, you must have your rough action plan. We will focus more on the secrets that will improve your action plan.
Example
Someone’s goal is to earn $10,000 per year through his new XYZ business. He has also developed an action plan for that. Now he should transform his action plan according to the “BAR” magic

B: Barriers

Define your barriers precisely and realistically. They could be like:
• Don’t have the investment to start a new business.
• No contact with potential clients.
• No solid experience in this field.

A: Activities

As barriers have been defined precisely. Now for the obstacles mentioned above. The following activities should be done:
• Get investment
• Find potential customers
• Learn business tricks

R: Resources

At this point, you have to develop a solution to minimize your barriers.
• Ask your family, friends, or bank for a loan.
• Grow your professional network.
• Enroll in a free or paid course (according to your budget) to learn the basics of business
If you want to increase your productivity, don’t forget to apply this “BAR” formula to your action plan.dipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

Final Thoughts

Lastly, take responsibility for your goals; otherwise, you will end up blaming society. Nothing can be achieved in this way! If you want to achieve something, then own it!
You will observe much better results when you start developing your goals in this way.
