Is goal_setting important? Ask almost anyone about the importance of goal_setting and they will affirm that it is incredibly important. Here is a small selection of verbatim responses to the question \"How important is goal_setting?\" \"The difference between successful people [and people struggling] is the setting of tangible and measurable goals.\" \"I believe goal setting does work and needs to be written down. \" \"If there are no set goals, things either happen, or they don\'t.\" \"With measurable goals you are in action to fulfill them\" \"... there\'s no excuse for failing to progress if you don\'t take ownership of your own goals\" \"Setting yourself some goals is always going to be effective\" \"I have been setting goals for myself for over 10 years. I believe that the goals enable me to achieve the things that I want\" \"People who are successful tend to be the same sort that write down goals\"
To my knowledge, none of my friends answered \"I wish to be a wage slave pushing paper from one side of a building to another, politically maneuvering myself into a position of power and authority, attending useless meetings each day and commute for 4 hours\" so what went wrong? Well, perhaps it is the goal_setting process.
