The Importance of Setting Goals
The start of a new year is traditionally a time to make resolutions for the coming year. However, most of the time they don’t last too long.
The importance of proper goal-setting was highlighted in a study conducted on students in the 1979 Harvard MBA program. The students were asked, “Have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?” Only 3 percent of the graduates had written goals and plans; 13 percent had goals, but they were not in writing; and 84 percent had no specific goals at all.
Ten years later, the members of the class were interviewed again, and the findings were quite astonishing. The 13 percent of the class who had goals were earning, on average, twice as much as the 84 percent who had no goals at all. And the three percent who had clear, written goals were earning, on average, ten times as much as the other 97 percent put together!
The 7 Keys to Successful Goal Setting
In spite of such proof of success, most of us don’t have clear goals that we work toward. What do you want your life to be like by the end of the year, and in 5 years time? To achieve what you want out of your life, we recommend being SMART about setting your goals.
We all have areas of our life that we want to be better, and following these principles can help you achieve a more fulfilled, happier and healthier life.
