Setting Personal Goals and Objectives – 3 Tips

Goals and Objectives

Goals and objectives are the driving force behind success. Whether in your personal life, your business life or both, when you determine your goals and objectives based on your values, your chances of reaching your target grow.

Often we base our goals and objectives on what we should do or who we should be, rather than on what we do and who we are. This is a recipe for disaster.

Check out these three tips designed to give you power when setting your goals and objectives. They may just change your life.

1. When you hear yourself use the words should or shouldn’t, beware of becoming a victim.

The words should and shouldn’t convey obligation rather than willingness to take a stand for ourselves and our goals and objectives. When we use should, our authentic self is not present.

How to make a change! Watch your language. Be intentional, and empower your actions by what you say.

2. When setting goals and objectives, assess the kind of life you will be living to attain them. Make sure you understand how the people around you will be affected by your decisions.

When we don’t achieve our goals and objectives, it is most likely because we didn’t factor in the lifestyle we would have to embrace to reach them. Nor did we consider how feasible the changes would be for the close circle of people around us.

How to make a change! Think carefully about what your journey toward your goals and objectives will look like and share your discovery with the people involved. Both at work and at home, you want your team by your side.

3. Where is the passion? When setting goals and objectives, why is passion important in life? Yes! Do listen to this awesome business advice from Steve Jobs. Getting where you want is hard work. Unless you are motivated by passion, you aren’t going to make it.

How to make a change! Fully embrace your power within. Let passion bring fire to your veins. Let it move you and direct you from the inside out.

I do most of my work in the internet branding and marketing arena, and I have noticed that the people who achieve their goals and objectives with the greatest success are the ones who act with intention, in line with their values and passions.

Get in tune with yourself and your values. You will find that setting your goals and objectives—and achieving them—will be easy and perfect.
