Why It’s Important To Set Goals

January 27, 2017

A year has been and gone so you know what that means… It’s goal setting time! This time of year everyone’s starting their new year’s resolutions. You go, Glen Coco!


Why It's Important To Set Goals - White Petal Travels


Goals give you focus and motivation to work towards something you’ve always dreamed of and help you achieve your highest potential.  According to life coaches, goal setting is your first step towards success, it’s when you switch from a passive state to being involved in life… In other words, stop dreaming and start living!



Do you have a bucket list? Sit down and start writing goals that will help you start ticking items off your list. By breaking those bigger goals into multiple smaller ones will make it more attainable. You don’t just run a marathon, you train and work your way up to it.

Want to buy a car or a house? The same rules apply, start with small goals you can easily achieve like saving x amount of money per week. This will all add up making that final goal possible.


Turn your dreams into a reality.



Need a little help keeping those goals? Share them with people who care about you. By sharing your plans it makes you accountable and allows them to ask questions like how are the piano lessons are going? Or have you booked that holiday yet? It gives you that extra little nudge to get it done.


Now with all that talk about goals, here are some little goals I’ve set for myself:

  • Learn to cook better.
  • Cut out processed foods.
  • Be more active – I’m living in Canada now, outdoors is everything!
  • Learn how to use my fancy new camera that I have NO idea how to work properly.
  • Get back into doing yoga regularly.


Have you set yourself any goals? Leave them in the comments below and see if we can help each other reach them!

    I really enjoyed your point of view on goal setting! I wrote a blog post a couple days ago about goal journaling. I’m trying to set daily goals (small ones) while using the journal as a planner as well. I’ve heard the same, that goal setting is a huge step towards success so this is my experiment with goal setting for now! – Great post!

    I so align with all of your goals! The past week I’ve done yoga every morning when I’ve woke up. As for cameras, I recommend the Sony A6000. It’s not intuitive but once you spend 30 min. to learn it, you’ll have amazing photos. I’m sure I don’t use it properly either!

      My sister gave me her old Canon 400D to learn with but it’s been so cold here in Canada I feel like my fingers are going to fall off every time I try to use it! ha

      Wait a go with the daily yoga!

    Definitely trying to cut out processed foods and cook more! I boiled fresh carrots for the first time yesterday for dinner! I usually get the steamers 🙂
