Setting goals and achieving them is a habit. When the goals process is practiced effectively, it becomes a part of your everyday life. It truly is a way of life.
In our Seeds of Success program, we share these ideas about goals:
- “Goal setting begins with an awareness of where you are right now and a desire to change the future.”
- “Goals are a prelude to action; they are a course to take; they are an expression of your strengths; they are an exercise of your desire for becoming a leader.”
- “Goals bring out the best in you; they express your desire to achieve, to improve your life, and to be more effective, more productive, and more successful tomorrow than you are today.”
In my family, goal setting has always been a way of life. My father, as a leadership development expert and coach, taught his children about goal setting from a very young age. In fact, I completed my first goal setting program when I was six years old! It’s never too early to start! I recognize that everyone doesn’t grow up learning about goals and being constantly encouraged to write down and achieve goals. But it’s never too late to start! If you’ve never set a goal in your life or if you’ve been wishy washy about goal setting over the years, why not now? Start today. If you need more direction on how to get started, read this blog that includes seven steps for getting started on your goals.
