Goals. Goals. And Goals.

As is usual and customary, the celebration of a new year, or calendar, for many people seems to be as good a time as any to start afresh with goals and resolutions and aspirations.

The sad thing about New Year’s Resolutions is that most resolutions made at this time of year are abandoned.

And often abandoned well before the end of the first month of the year.

Why is that?

Lack of accountability is probably the main factor.

Considering that the VAST majority of resolvers discard their resolutions, conformity [to failure] is considered acceptable.

It is said that only three percent of the population have substantial written down goals and review those goals.



And when you corollate those numbers beside the fact that at age sixty-five, only five percent of the population can afford to retire [considered well off or wealthy], then there might just be something in this goal-setting exercise?

A Matrix of Goals

Dan Kennedy said:

“A matrix of long term, medium term, and short term goals linked to a chief purpose and/or a clear vision is essential if you are to tap both your own full potential and the full potential of others to assist you.”

These are powerful words.

Goals and aspirations cannot successfully be achieved if they are in fact only a list of random dreams and desires.

Your goals need to be a progressive course of achievable events that will lead you to your ultimate finale.

When I talk with clients about achieving financial personal and practice goals, we relate our lofty aspirational goals to the incremental monthly, weekly and daily and hourly requirements that need to happen consistently so that the lofty annual goal can be achieved.

Chunking our big goals down into smaller achievable bite-sized components is the best way of accomplishing what we set out to achieve.

Ensuring a commonality of purpose and a congruence amongst our goals, as Kennedy stated, is indeed the best way of staying on track towards achieving what we set out to do, because the actions required towards achieving one goal may be of assistance in achieving other subsequent goals.

The setting of goals that I’ve worked on with clients has allowed them to smash through their self-limiting beliefs and self-imposed glass ceilings and achieve dramatic improvements that they had never thought possible.
