As you very well know it is that same time of year again. We have to take the time to reflect on the current year and look forward to the new. Did you have goals going into this new year? Did you follow through on them or quickly forget them? Goal setting can be tricky. It can be down right boring after a few weeks too. There are so many pit falls you can get into with goal planning. Look everyone know they need goals, some of us set them, and very few of those people actually follow through with them. Why?
Almost no one has received any formal training on goal setting. Sure you might have seen a fish chart or a S.M.A.R.T. training sheet, but where those win in organization they fail in the psychology of goal setting. When you boil a goal down regardless of what it is we are trying to attain a different level of “feeling” about ourselves or our organization. You want to make 50% more revenue in 2018. Great, do you know why you want that? Most people would just say so they could make more money or invest back in their business or even buy a boat, but what they are actually setting a goal for is the “feeling” of less stress financially, or more freedom financially. That goal can be achieved in many more ways than just 50% more revenue.
