Back out of that parking space and put your life in drive.
As we close the first quarter of a new decade, it’s a good time to pause and reflect on the past decade before planning for the next ten years in front of us. Are you where you thought you would be right now? As the decades keep passing by, what can we do to ensure we achieve the goals that will matter to us most in life? How do we know we are living a life we will one day look back on and be proud? Today, Janet Pilcher focuses on what to consider as we set goals for a meaningful life.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- How do we ensure we achieve the goals that will matter most to us in life?
- What should we consider as we set goals for ourselves?
- Why should you push yourself to set more challenging goals?
As the decade ends, it's time to reflect not only on your goals for 2020, but for the decade beyond. Don't be intimidated, it's not as daunting an exercise as you'd think. It comes down to asking yourself the right questions, ones that spur goal setting to not only maximize achievement and success, but to create deeper meaning.
Leaders in high performing organizations are very clear about why they set goals for the organization, for themselves, and for the employees who report to them. They want to achieve results. High performing leaders know they must rely on employees to help the organization achieve its goals.This connection from the organization’s goals to the employee’s goals is called alignment. High performing leaders create a strong linkage that creates a clear line of sight from the organization’s purpose and goals to the work to be performed by the employee.
