Why Writing Down Your Goals Important?

Do yourself a favor and stop reading motivational quotes. Okay, I am not against motivational quotes, I love them actually. Success quotes give us hope and makes our thoughts positive. But reading and thinking is different from acting upon it. If you really want to succeed, make it tangible.

Get a paper and pen now! Yes paper and pen, not your tablet, not your iPhone but a paper and pen. Right down every goals, dreams and aspirations you can think of, even those seemingly impossible ones. MAKE IT TANGIBLE.

No, writing it down won’t make you successful and instantly reach your goals. Keyword: STEPS. In every goal you write down, write every step you think you need to do in order to fulfill that goal. PLAN IT because if not it may be just another unfulfilled goals. If you cannot think of steps, research. There are a lot of blogs that can help you to have a concrete plan.

Why write it down? Writing it down makes you accountable. Having everything tangible and visible makes it possible to do. Nothing can beat a concrete plan written on a paper. If you only store it in your brain chances are it may lose in the brim of information overflow. Make it possible by listing it down.

I believe when someone says,

“You are worthy of your dreams.”

But let me add something,

“You are only worthy of your dreams when you do something about it.”


Maybe this will be having a Part 2. But as for now, thank you for reading my post.

  1. Another thing about it is that, when we write our goals we should remember two things:

    1) It should absolutely be doable and realistic.

    We need to measure our goals against our capacity to do them. It’s some sort of symbiosis, which leads us to the second one:

    2) It should be as very specific as possible.

    “I want to be successful in my career” won’t cut it. We need to identify in which field and in which time frame should we be successful.

    I remember all of these because it’s a bit similar to one of my tarot readings last night. 😀
