1. Short-term goals should be attainable (you can do it), actionable (there are things that would be required of you in the NEAR future to do it) 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. When addressing long-term goals think through what you want to have accomplished, where your time will be spent, etc,
4. 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.
