I love this time of the year. It’s not just because of the holiday season and the chance to spend time with friends and family. I like this time of the year because it gives me time to reflect on the past 12 months and set goals for the next 12. Goal setting can be daunting task for many of us. Quite often people set goals without giving thought to the impact they have on various parts of their life. For example, they might set a goal for one aspect of their life only to learn several months latter that while they achieved this goal other areas are suffering like their health, relationship, or finances.
You might be wondering why I am writing goal setting in a blog devoted to business issues. Why am I concerned with this topic? Why should you be concerned with it too? The answer is that I am a big proponent of goal setting. It is required if we are going to obtain any results in our life. More importantly, I believe that how we show up in one area of our life impacts how we show up in other areas of our life. For example, our ability to advance in business may be directly related to our relationships at home or vice versa.
The truth is that we can design an amazing life for ourselves and “run on all cylinders” as I like to refer to the feeling of success and fulfillment in all areas of our life. Effective goal setting, requires that we first assess each part of our life and determine where we need to achieve better results. If our health is at a 10 and our relationships are at a 6, doesn’t it make sense to set some goals in this area rather then spending more time at the gym.
Basically, if we are going to make progress in the key areas of our life we need to head the adage …. “What you don’t measure, you can’t improve.”
If we don’t measure those areas of our life that are important, it’s hard to improve them. You must know where you are now before you can move beyond it.
