Setting Goals is the Key to Success
2nd of 5
At the root of all success is a vision and intention. We must learn to set achievable goals.
I lead teams.
I lead meetings.
I teach leaders to lead.
I can see the end result, because I have defined it clearly.
I set a goal to be in shape. I have expressed the goal in terms of running a certain distance in a certain amount of time. I can’t accomplish that goal without the following:
- The belief that I will succeed…
- A description of what it looks like when I have succeeded…
- A long-term vision…
- Short-term goals…
- A weekly schedule…
- A daily plan of action…
That works for my work, as well as for my running.
What about your work?
What about your life?
Goals are SMART!
S = Specific
M = Measurable
A = Accountable
R = Realistic
T = Timed
Note to the frantic and weary: The “A” for accountable provides the traction that makes goals work. Check out my Podcast 32: Setting Powerful Goals That Work
