This is the real reason for the importance of setting goals or deciding what you will do. Goal_setting is about taking back the control of our own lives. It is about you being the boss of you and even more importantly who you are as a person. Yes, setting goals is important. Deciding what you want to do and what you will do for the rest of your life is what is important. Question: Is it important enough for you to decide to make some changes and important enough to do something about it?
Respondents were asked if they were willing to share their own personal goal, 60% did so and these break down into four main focuses: Career, Lifestyle, Money or Ability. We also asked how satisfied respondents were with their achievement. The first three are \'Outcome\' goals _ that is, they specify a particular tangible outcome. Ability focus is a \'Performance\' goal _ such goals focus on an ability or capability of the individual. For those with a Lifestyle goal focus, average wealth is 95ꯠ and \'satisfied\' with their achievement. A Career focus, average wealth is just over 100ꯠ and \'somewhat satisfied\' A Money focus, average wealth is 162귔 and \'satisfied\' and lastly, An \'Ability\' focus, average wealth is 780ꯠ and \'very satisfied\'! Go on, have a guess on the statistical conclusion... yep; those who left formal education in the 90\'s focus more on \'Ability\', 80\'s focus on career and lifestyle, whilst the 70\'s predominantly Money. Surely a reflection of the environment of the time.
