To understand better how
personal goal setting works, it is good to
have a simple picture of how your mind
is functioning. You can think of your mind
being built of two parts: conscious and subconscious minds. Conscious mind is responsible for your current awareness and decision making. It is only around 12 % of your mind. The other 88 % is your subconscious mind.
Subconscious mind is where you have your
personality, where all your feelings and
thoughts come from. Your memory, with all
your personal values, beliefs, and habits ,
is also there.
You have quite good and direct control over
your conscious mind. It takes more effort and
sophistication to direct
your subconscious mind, and this is where
smart personal goal setting techniques and
guidelines are particularly helpful.
