I believe most of us already know how important this is.
Setting goals is simply giving yourself a task that must be completed within a period, to put it simply. It gives us an idea of where we are going and some drive that pushes us to getting there.
Goal setting allows us to mentally visualize what we want and if we can visualize it, we can walk/work towards it. It gives a clear understanding of the larger picture.
In my opinion, to utilize this to it’s full potential we must not only set goals but we must constantly revisit them until the time they are accomplished. Consistency, regarding this is very important as well as patience.
So set your goals, strive to accomplish it, be consistent and above all be patient.
