Motivational Quotes About Clarity And Focus Towards A Goal

Focus is useless if there is no clear direction for our goals. As the father of personal coaching, Thomas Leonard, says, "Clarity affords focus." 

Moreover, channeling our energy and resources becomes a breeze when we strategize. George Duran, a veteran in corporate planning, wrote in a 1981 article the timeless and effective goal-setting strategy2 — the SMART framework. This clever acronym stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound goals.

After crafting our plans using this framework, together with discipline and focus, we now have an unbeatable recipe for motivation and a crystal-clear vision of our desired trajectory in life.

If you still doubt the power of goal-setting, stop. According to a study, mentally placing ourselves in our desired future makes us more engaged in achieving our goals. The future eventually becomes our reality the deeper we engross ourselves in planning for it1.

So, grab a pen and paper and write down your smart goals after checking the quotes about clarity below.
