If goals are our vision of a bright future, shouldn’t we focus our attention on achieving our long-term goals?
So, short-term goals are also crucial as long-term ones. In fact, without short-term identity goals, there are higher chances of failure to achieve our long-term goals.
When it comes to personal success, some tools are compelling as reasonable short-term goals.

Why Are Short-Term Goals?

A short-term goal is that you want to achieve it soon. Here soon means today, weekly planning, this month, or even this year.

Short-term goals are more accessible to accomplish than long-term goals.

For example, A great short-term goal is “I will increase my salary by 20% in the next seven months”.

Short-term goals allow you:

* focus on doing the important things to achieve something

* see where you headed and what you need to achieve something

* identify the next steps you have to take

* check on your progress to see if you’re still on track

* overcome your tendency to procrastinate.

How Can You Set Good Short-Term Goals?

Short-term goals break your more significant outcomes and visions into manageable milestones. They are a critical link in getting from “Why am I here?” to What’s the one most important thing I can be doing just now.

Five ways to set your short-term goal for success:

* Identify your short-term goals based on your long-term goals.

* Set outcomes and process your goals.

* Make your goals smarter.

* Set balanced goals.

* Step back and identify your short-term goals often.

If your monthly goals do not seem to be working, come back to the above list. There are good chances you have lost sight of one of the high principles.

Existential Crisis

Maybe you have heard the word before, but do you know what it’s like to drown in an existential crisis?

An existential crisis is a moment that an individual questions the meaning of life. It sounds pretty simple. The truth is, to be in an existential crisis is to question about life itself. It also means wondering about decisions, relationships, motivations, and other stress-inducing scenarios. It can be closely related to anxiety.

Having an existential crisis has dual characteristics, both good and bad.

There are specific criteria that indicate this illness. There are words, body language, and activities also. That means you and your loved ones are questioning their own existence and are searching for more than life provides.

Here are a few ways to point those who are in the grip of existential crisis:

* Confused about socializing
* Spending too much time on social media
* Losing identity, losing home
* Drinking lots of coffee
* Crying is common
* Low motivation
* Becoming a hypochondriac
* Questioning everything
* Dwelling on death etc.

Freedom from this hell

There are many treatments for people who are suffering from an existential crisis. One of the most notable treatment would be categorized as existential-humanistic treatment. Unlike routine psychology, this form of therapy focus on your concern for your future and the ways that are holding you back mentally.

According to Ph.D. Louise Sundararajan, Existential-humanistic psychology does one crucial thing:
“It asks about the meaning of life.”
