For success, write down your goals on a piece of paperWhen it comes to finding out which is mightier, some say it's the sword and some say it's the pen. I would rather say, for personal ambitions and goals, it is the paper, which is mightier. We have often heard wise men and women say, if we desire success in life, we need to write down our goals. But, where to write? Scrap books or diaries? No, definitely not. Instead, a small piece of paper is going to do the trick for you. Yes, write your goal on a piece of paper (especially true for long-term goals) and stick it to your laptop, computer, TV, bedroom door or even the washroom door. They say writing down your goals on a paper and placing it at a convenient place where it always catches your attention is the best way to accomplish your goals. Until and unless you jot them down and get to see them on a regular basis, you are likely to neglect and forget your goals. Most successful people and even some smart students use this technique to achieve success in their respective domain.
Why to speak of others, at times, I myself use this technique to achieve my goals, especially the short-term ones. One more thing about writing goals is that you need to quantify them. Quantifying leads to greater success. Better still, if you can break them into smaller targets. When done with the writing, stick the paper at a place where it catches your attention day in and day out. By quantifying, I mean, giving a certain quantity or number to your goal. For example, in the recently held article contest, I used this very technique. Since it was a short-term target, I quantified my goal, wrote it on a plain sheet of paper and pasted it to my bedroom door. I had started late, still set a target of 20 articles. Could however, manage only 11. Even that was possible due to the fact that I had written down my goal on a paper, gave a number to it, broken it down to a day wise target and then pasted it at a place, where it constantly spurred me to get going with the task at hand. So, in case you desire of greater success in life, get going with writing down your goals on a piece of paper.
