With the New Year upon us, I'm gonna take a wild guess and assume that you are busy thinking of ways to grow and advance yourself in both your career and personal life - Right?!
Which is normal because  that's the sort of effect the beginning of a new year always brings upon all of us  - the desire to grow and better ourselves!
Which is why NOW marks the perfect time to get proactive in developing a growth plan for your career , and indeed your personal life in 2016! But the way to do that is to seriously think of what it is you'd like to achieve and then set yourself goals accordingly, because I'm not sure if you realize it, but goal-setting is a surefire way to get results and see the growth you so desire, and probably deserve!
And so here are the 5 Reasons Why You Need To Set Yourself Personal Goals in 2016:

Reason  Number  One:

Goals help us define what's important to us. We wouldn't be determined to achieve something if we didn't set goals. 

Reason  Number  Two:

Goal-setting is especially crucial in helping our minds to focus on achieving a specific task for us, especially if a goal is perceived to be quite challenging, because the way our brains work is: the harder it is, the bigger the reward! And That's why goal setters are always high achievers.

Reason  Number Three:

Goals are the guiding force towards achieving what we desire. Without a goal, the brain doesn't really have a clear direction as to what it should be doing or working towards. Which is why most of the time, if you don't have a goal, you'll find yourself having a series of uncompleted tasks, and wonder: "What was I doing all this time? Where did the time go?" And the reason behind that was: there was never any clear mission to achieve in the first place.

Reason Number Four:

The only way to know for sure that you're advancing in life is by setting yourself some measurable goals, otherwise, you end up having  no surefire way of measuring your progress.

Reason  Number  Five:

Above all else, goal-setting helps us keep focused on the bigger price and ultimately on what's worth striving for. For without goals, one simply wonders from year in and year out without ever achieving a single thing!

So here's to you setting some kick-ass career goals for yourself in 2016.
