Goals are part of every little aspect of our businesses and our lives; and give us a sense of direction, inspiration, a clear target, and clarify the importance of our tasks. By learning the Art of Setting Goals for ourselves and for our teams, we create a clear objective in our heads. This helps us to guide the goal settings.
Goals should always be:
- S - Specific
- M - Measurable
- A - Attainable
- R - Relevant
- T - Time-Bound
Goals need to be incorporated all of these criteria to help focus your and your team’s efforts, while exponentially increasing the chances of achieving these goals.
In the absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.
