1. Short-term goals should be actionable, attainable and with fixed time constraints.
2. Long term goals have few limitations although it is best to break them up into time intervals such as five-year, 10 year, twenty-year and lifetime.
3. Remember that ultimately you are trying to write down how you want to develop yourself long term. This should encompass both personal and vocational growth.
4. No goal is too small! If you are excited or passionate about anything then there is a means by which you can achieve what you are excited about.
