A Harvard study suggests 83% of the US population do not have goals. Those with goals are 10 times more likely to be successful. Goals provide a sense of direction, motivation, a clear focus, and clarify importance. By setting goals, you are providing yourself with a target to aim for. As a leader, goal setting is an important objective as it puts in motion actions needed to yield results. Here are four keys on goal setting:
1. Visualize what you want the desired outcome to be. According to the Laws of Extreme Business: The Law of Vision says your visualization develops out of your promise, which is then translated into the functions and activities of the enterprise. The greater the promise and the greater the vision, the more momentum and energy you can create. Your vision must be intrinsic to every aspect of your business, or it will remain intangible and beyond reach.
2. Write goals down. It is important to put your goals on paper so you can see them, remember them, and refer to them. The act of writing down a goal down is a very powerful motivator.
3. Identify the investments and sacrifices you will need to make in order to achieve your goals. Leadership expert Dr. John C. Maxwell, says “Leadership success requires continual change, constant improvement, and ongoing sacrifice.” No matter your industry or career path, increasing achieving goals requires sacrifice. You must be prepared to give up your free time, your family time, and sometimes even your monies to achieve success.
4. Schedule time to work on your goals. There’s a saying “time stops for no one,” which is why one must be intentional with time when it comes to setting goals. Make an appointment in your daily agenda and hold it as sacred as the time you go to the gym. This habit ensures you’ll always achieve your goals.
