Goal-setting theory draws on the concept that our conscious ideas guide our actions (Locke, 1968). This theory states that goal setting is essentially linked to task performance. … Goals should be realistic and challenging. This gives an individual a feeling of pride and triumph when they are attained and sets the individual up for attainment of the next goal.
So, what we think is what we become.
1. Setting Goals Can Clarify and Focus Our Thoughts and Behaviors
2. Goals promote Confidence and Motivation.
3. Goal setting requires Commitment
The process of setting goals is one the requires time and honesty. First, it takes time to reflect on what your goals are. These are not your spouses or best friends or boss’ goals but your own goals. Second, you have to be honest with yourself that these are what you want to accomplish and that they will take you in the direction you want to go.
If you are setting the goals for the organization, is this where you believe the business should be going or is this just lip-service? I have heard too many CEO’s stand up and say proclaim the goal is to build the business by 10%. That certainly leaves it up to all persons involved as to their interpretation as well as most businesses safely grow by 10% each year anyway. Setting goals requires far more thought and work than this.
Whether we accomplish our goals, we are always in a better place than when we started.
