Why goal setting on its own does not work…

Having worked with hundreds of business owners over the past 15 years, you start to see patterns emerge. Patterns connected to success, achievement, struggles & failure.

We work with clients on creating plans for their business, setting goals and objectives. We work with them on ensuring that their teams also have goals and objectives.

We then help them implement strategies that should deliver on these goals and objectives, testing and measuring as we go.

Many are very successful but some fail to get off the ground at all. And we wonder why and look for a pattern.

The most common pattern that I see emerging is that the people who succeed place a greater meaning on the success, it means something to them, they can visualise it and see it. For the less successful ones, the goals and objectives are set because that’s what they are supposed to do.

Don’t get me wrong – they do want to achieve but they have not connected what that really means to them and what it will help them achieve.

People blame lack of discipline for not achieving their goals.

Its more likely “not having a big enough reason to achieve”

When you are planning your 2017, make sure that every goal is accompanied by a big enough reason for you, that will mean something for for you and your family.

So, dont give up on the plan, the goals or the objective – spend more time establishing the reason why you want it in the first place.
