Up until 2001, goals were divided into three types or groups:
A mastery goal is a goal someone sets to accomplish or master something such as “I will become my best potential self.”

A master-avoidance goal does exist and proving that each type of goal can, in fact, be useful depending on the circumstances.
Clarity is important when it comes to goals. Setting goals that are clear and specific eliminate the confusion that occurs when a goal is set in a more generic manner.
Challenging goals stretch your mind and cause you to think bigger. This helps you accomplish more. Each success you achieve helps you build a winning mindset.
Commitment is also important. If you don’t commit to your goal with everything you have it is less likely you will achieve it.
Feedback helps you know what you are doing right and how you are doing. This allows you to adjust your expectations and your plan of action going forward.
Task Complexity is the final factor. It’s important to set goals that are aligned with the goal’s complexityy
