Goal Setting SUCKS! January 17, 2014 Presented by: Billy Moyer SOS Leadership Institute
Goal Setting 101 “If you are not making the progress you would like to make and are capable of making, it is simply because your goals are not clearly defined.” - Paul J. Meyer
Goal Setting Sucks! • It actually works! • We often work on the goals of others. • Too much setting, not enough action. • Often acts outside of the purpose for our lives. • Most goals are about what we want to have, do, or accomplish. • Goal Setting should be about who we want to become.
What is Success? • Progressive • Realization • Worthwhile • Predetermined • Personal • Goal
“Goal setting begins with an awareness of where you are right now and a desire to change the future.” - SOS Leadership Seeds of Success Program
Goals Are… • A prelude to action. • A course to take. • An expression of your strengths. • - SOS Leadership Seeds of Success Program
Goal Setting 101 B A “THERE” “HERE”
The things that are easy to do... are also easy "NOT" to do!
Knowing vs. Doing
Dreams vs. Goals • Dreams come before goals. • Goal must have a target date. • Dream Big! • Develop a dream list! • Where do you want to go? Who do you want to become? What do you want to learn?
SMART Goals • Specific • Measurable • Attainable • Realistic • Time Limited
Goal Setting Process • Develop life mission/purpose statement. • Write specific goals that support this statement. • List benefits of achieving goals. • Anticipate possible obstacles and find solutions. • Write detailed action steps and deadlines to achieve the goal. • Integrate action steps into your own planning system. • Determine method of tracking progress. • Write affirmations to support your belief. • Develop a visualization that reminds you of the goal.
