How many times have we heard those words: Goal Setting? Probably far too many to count. We all set goals from trying that fabulous new Thai restaurant to landing a promotion. But how do you know if your desire is worth the effort of setting a goal? That takes a little soul searching. I recently read a fantastic article on Business Woman Magazine by Sylvia Hepler that asks all the right questions to help you set your goals and more importantly differentiate between goals and desires.
Some things you need to take into account include your values, focus, time, energy, money, self-sacrifice and finally what Hepler calls your ‘big picture’. Taking the time to sort out the answers to the questions asked in the article can bring clarity to the often fuzzy concept of goals.
