Through a random selection of fifty respondents we found that there is some commonality in the manner in which goals are set: When we compare the groups of \'Very Satisfied\' with their achievement and \'Satisfied\' or \'Somewhat Satisfied\' with their achievement. The first group were more likely to have SMART goals. The goal is described in sensory terms _ what will be seen, heard and felt, and for a small number, smelt and tasted. Respondents were clear about what achieving the goal will do positively for them and the cost to themselves (and others) of achieving their goal. Their goal, they considered personally stretching yet \'knew\' that they were capable of achieving it themselves. More than 60% stated their goal in the present tense _ \'I am\' rather than \'I will be\'.
Let\'s talk about goal setting; how you go about setting Purposeful goals, and making sure those goals actually get achieved. How do you make goals work not only for New Year\'s time, but throughout the whole year? How do you make them actually changing your life, transforming your life for the better? Personally, I\'ve struggled with goals for a long time. That\'s because they seem simple. They seem obvious; you need to go in there and start to look into what actually makes goals work so that you can set proper, powerful goals to achieve your Purpose. If you\'re like me, then you have big dreams for your life. You know you\'re capable of so much more. What that means is that you have some sort of dream. You have some sort of vision. What your career could be like, how your business might be growing, what your health might be like, how your lifestyle is like. All of those areas in your life, to achieve big things in those areas, you need to have some goals to get you there.
