How do you set solid riding goals for yourself?

How do you set solid riding goals for yourself?
Analyze where you are now and figure out where you want to be (try not to compare yourself to anyone else, we are all completely different). Everyone has long term goals, which can take quite a while to achieve, so make sure to set some short term goals, which keep you interested, motivated, and help you to your end goal. Make sure they are all *realistic* . Nothing is more discouraging than an unrealistic goal that you may never reach, for example, it is completely unrealistic to make your goal to win first place in your first show (a nice goal, but not realistic).
It can help to think of each short term goal you make, as a rung on a ladder, and the top of the ladder is you long term goal, or end goal.
Sorry for the mouthful lol hope it helps
