We’ve had a great week of posts, looking at performance achievements, setting up learning agendas, and then how balance factors into the equation. Now let’s tie that all together and see how you can apply the same principles to your goal setting.
The type of goals you select and the nature of each, dramatically influences your prospect of accomplishing them. Here’s my go-to checklist for setting goals:
- They need to be your goals. (Research shows the goals pushed on you by bosses or family have dismal levels of realization.)
- The goal should be built on your strengths, not for fixing a weakness. (For all the reasons we discussed in the last four posts.)
- Goals supported by a mindful learning agenda have prodigious levels of accomplishment.
- The goal should be quantifiable and measurable. Goals like “write better” don’t really get you anywhere.
- You want to create “sticky” goals: goals so enticing, powerful, and compelling, they pull you toward achieving them!
