Behind any meaningful change there has to be a motivation to change. That motivation is most effectively shown as a goal. Goals can be anything that leads you to sustained action. Goals are usually material in nature because tangible items are easier to see then intangible.
Setting goals can be difficult if you don't have a guideline to follow. Here is your guideline.
1. They must be measurable.
2. They must have a date.
3. They must be realistic.
4. They must be written.
5. They must be believable.
Jason Brader from FASST and I held a seminar discussing goals on Saturday afternoon. Our audience was student athletes and their coaches. The turn out was great and the kids left with a renewed vigor and confidence.
The "V" in Valid represents vision. Goals help you define and reach your vision. The next few weeks will be dedicated to Goals and Vision.
Another significant event which took place on Saturday was the start of my personal coaching venture. Personal Coaching is an extension of my mission, which is helping to restore others. More info can be found at www.seedmin.com.
Proper goals can energize, but poor goals will demoralize.
How do you set goals?
