Setting Goals

Setting Goals

As we are coming into year-end and look at 2016, what are you looking to accomplish? What are your goals?

Some consider the word GOALS to be a big word, but it is simply a vision for what you want to accomplish. Setting goals is a fundamental component to long-term success. The reason for this is that you can’t get where you are trying to go until you clearly define where that is. Research shows there is a direct link between goals and enhanced performance.

There are many reasons to set goals. Here are some:

  • Gives clarity on your end vision
  • Drives you forward
  • Gives you laser focus
  • Makes you accountable
  • Be the best you can be
  • Live your best life

Putting goals in writing is a sure way to accomplish them. Writing them down and keeping them somewhere where you see them on a regular basis is an easy way to keep them in the front of your mind. Seeing them regularly often works on your sub conscious… it is very powerful to visualize them.

If you are interested in learning more, here is a resource to get you started.

“Know what you want, work to get it, then value it once you have it.” —Nora Roberts, Morrigan’s Cross

Happy goal setting. Have a great weekend.


About Friday Food for Thought (FFfT)

I frequently attend conferences and retreats on entrepreneurship and leadership and while I am away, the J2 team picks up the slack, allowing me to learn to be better at what I do. I wanted to share what I was learning with my team, so I created the weekly FFfT emails in November of 2015 and have been writing them ever since.

Before long, the J2 staff began sharing the FFfT emails with their friends and family and now other leaders have asked to be included, which led to the creation of this newsletter. I hope you enjoy!
