People have long said that goals are the most basic building block for success. Without goals you’re just a ship without a rudder.
But there’s more to the story, and if you just jump in and start setting goals you’re going to set yourself up for disappointment.
I’ve done this myself, it’s how I know the feeling of teeing up a big audacious goal and striking out. It’s enough to make you give up on goal setting altogether!
Which is what a lot of people did.
A couple years back there was a big “no goals” movement amongst personal development blogs. Some really successful people came out and said, “Goal setting isn’t the way to achievement anymore.”
Scores of people followed suit and renounced goal setting as an effective achievement method. While I wasn’t one of them myself, I eventually experimented with a “no goals” year (albeit inadvertently).
What I learned during that year and the year following (where I course corrected) is what I want to share with you today.
Too many people have given up goals because they didn’t hit a home run in their first at bat. Too many people have decided that goals don’t work because they let themselves down.
Goals aren’t the problem, it’s the foundation the goals were built on that’s the problem.
Listen to this session to hear:
– The real reason behind the “no goals” movement
– Why you need to build your goals on a dream and a vision to succeed
– How this all fits into the bigger achievement picture.
