Every goal should be created with as clear a vision as possible. The more detailed you can be about your end point the easier it becomes to plan and focus. Having a cloudy or vague idea is more likely to result in lower performance.

These 3 principles define the ideal steps to attain satisfaction and control with your progress and self development. 

Your accountability to your goals can only be fully realized once you have a clear heart felt purpose. The best approach will create your own autonomy to be responsible and self dependent on your goals. By including a challenge and development through skills mastery, the combined outcome is a motivated, determined and accountable person.

Creating a vision board, process map and full details offer great starts to discover the missing elements of your full journey to success.

It is fine to create a strategy however mapping it out in a visual form allow super insights for inefficiency and conflicts for goals. This is especially important when creating multiple goals across multiple people. So, a dad that wants to pursue a study of history may find the time allocated to study conflicts with the amount of time required to support other family activities. So the intent and desire and goal remains however it is a risk of failure until it is mapped to understand other consequences and commitments.

Expect and anticipate mistakes and failures along the journey of your goals.

The reality of life bring unique challenges that even the best prepared plans sometimes miss and fail. So, pursue your goals with the knowledge that you are being challenged. These testing times will stress you mentally and for some goals physically, on top of these stress factors are natural events and life's own curve balls. Hope and plan for the best but be prepared for mistakes to be made at each phase of your pursuit. Keep a focus and reminder on why you set your goal, pick yourself up and simply move forward. A great phrase I use for this is SUMO: Shut Up and Move On.

Engineer your system and success process

Every goal should be process driven and automated as possible. Plan so it becomes normal and systematic, not an extra "to do" at the end of your day.

Every goal should be process driven and automated as possible. Plan so it becomes normal and systematic, not an extra "to do" at the end of your day.

Robust engineering systems operate on well designed and successful processes. The same approach should apply to how you visualize and implement your goal structure. Creating clear habits of positive behavior, creating positive environments for action (avoiding distractions) is a clear need for progress. Use the image of a well tuned machine, or car to implement your goal like an engineered system.

Picture types of measurement possible

To measure the distance someone has gone during a day may only share part of the full story regarding their exertion levels. For instance, try walking 1 mile or 1 kilometer, then try to crawl that distance, or sprint run it as opposed to a gentle job. So, defining the correct scales and types of measurement is vital to gain the best visual performance indicators for your progress. These result provide then the basis of motivation, progress, identify clear improvement areas and highlight development spots. Although measurement is one of the most used aspects seen across goal setters, we see them over looking the correct and optimal methods of measurement. So do not chase the wrong metrics.

Gamification a visual display of progress

A range of rewards and images can be created to match the story of your gamification process.

A range of rewards and images can be created to match the story of your gamification process.

Visual tools like gamification rewards offer instant gratification and feedback on progress. It is hard not to see the explosion of visual rewards for instance seen when using various apps from podcasts to audio books to fitness and even reddit. There are clever reasons why this helps motivate people to reinforce behaviors. You should learn from these leading technologies and implement your own gamification system of visual tools. Give yourself a "Free Carrot" token for every pound in weight you use as on simple example.

Visualize and consider motivation factors

We are social animals by nature. Find common allies that share similar goals or are able to collaborate on shared actions to help each other reach your goals.

Embrace the like minded people and cherish the memories you can create together for success.

Every person and business is unique. What works for one person or business department may not be identical to another. Repeat of success through copied processes is not a guarantee of success. This is why there are so many "standard" goal setting models, the framework is similar and yet the execution should be varied on a case to case basis. So, use the pictures and images here as inspiration to form your own detailed steps for goal setting success.
