What are goals? What is goal setting?
The object of a person's ambition or effort; an aim or desired result. GOAL
Goal setting is the process of deciding what you want to accomplish and devising a plan to achieve the result you desire.
Without goals, we would just drift along. Goal setting allows us to be proactive, instead of just being reactive.
For effective goal setting, you need to do more than just decide what you want to do; you also have to work at accomplishing whatever goal you have set for yourself.
We can think of a goal as doing the following:
- Defines the destination
- Changes the direction to move toward the destination
- Changes the mindset to adjust to and support the new direction
- Creates the necessity to develop specific tactics
Goals tend to change your mind-set by changing your focus. And as your focus changes, it takes your thinking with it.
What we are today is the product of our past. By that, I mean our previous thoughts and actions determine, to a large extent, what kind of people we become. Those who act wisely now will have insight in the future to make judicious decisions. Set Goals.... they will Com2pass.
