Even though I have not always followed through with them, goals have been a big part of my life. There has been a pattern of setting goals that have been safe with moderate accountability. Goals which can be kept to myself. NOT GOOD!
According to one of the on-line dictionaries, a “goal” is: “the result or achievement toward which effort is directed, aim, end. An “objective” is: something that one’s efforts or actions are intended to attain or accomplish; purpose; goal; target: “The objective of a military attack…”: “The objective of a fundraising campaign.”
Until now, I have not always had clear personal objectives; they have almost always been placed on me by others to achieve their desires. No clarity. No purpose. Do you have clarity for you? Are the objectives you have set for yourself clear? Solid? Is there accountability built in? Are they SMART? Set your sights on “that one thing.” And then, GO GET IT!
