  • Like many, you areprobably very skilled at setting goals–but not quite so goodat achieving them.You make New Year’s resolutions, promosing to yourselfto lose weight, exercise more, or get organized. A couple of weeks into a new year, and you find youresolve without energy, along with your goals.According to a time management poll, many personal goals did not make it to the end of January and most people eventually forget about their goals before the year is over .It is same thing at work. Companies establish all kinds of goals,from nicely printedmissions statements tokey performance indicators, and then often fail to work as a team to meet manyof them.Why are you so bad at goal setting? What is blocking your mind and focus? Here are five probably mistakes:1. You underestimate how hard it isDiet books and ads too often promise full body make overs in 30 days, 60 days, 90 days? Be real!In reality, most meaningful goals take a lot of work to realize. If you don’t recognize from the out start that losing ten pounds, or increasing sales 10%, will take considerable time and effort,  you will find it all too easy to give up once you get caught up in the day-to-day. You have to forecast the difficulties so that you are mentally prepared to meet the challenges when they inevitably arise.2. You didn’t “own” your goal.“I’m just doing this because my boss wants me to” is a goal that is destined for failure. If you’re just implementing a new sales strategy to please the new vice president, not because you believe in its necessity, you’re going to find it impossible to stay on course when you encounter obstacles–or just the daily interruptions.We’re living in a perfect storm of distractions–email, cell phones, texting, IM, on demand media. It’s way too tempting to tell yourself, “I’m incredibly busy, I’ll get to this tomorrow.” In one survey, people admitted to wasting nearly two hours a day of an 8-hour work day on socializing or goofing off on the internet. Waiting for a “tomorrow” usually means never.If you want to meet that 10% target, you need to be self-motivated and be committed to achieving it.3. Your goal wasn’t clear, or measurable.“Increasing customer satisfaction” is too general. You need to identify the specific, quantifiable goal (ie: improving customer retention by 5 percent), so that you can measure your progress on a regular basis.  The on-going monitoring–seeing that retention inched up, or down–will reinforce your strategy and help you stay on track.Yes, we know that there are people who argue that dieters should never get on a scale–that you can tell if you’re losing weight by how your clothes fit. But how many people actually lose weight that way? And is it really possible to keep focused on that difficult-to-achieve goal, without periodically checking in to see how you’re progressing?4. You didn’t realize the rewards would be modest.If you set a goal to increase sales 10%, and so far you’ve inched up sales 2%, you’re probably not going to see the confetti sprinkling down over your head. The sense of satisfaction may be limited. Progress frequently is incremental, and slower than we hope. The key is to remember that fact, so you keep plugging on.5.  You tried to do it alone.There is a very good reason why so many diet plans encourage dieters to join to support groups. Most of us need a community of supporters who will cheer us on when the going gets tough–and, most importantly, hold us accountable. Just the sheer act of publicly acknowledging your goal can help make you accountable to achieve it.It takes courage–and humility–to publicly admit that you need to do better. But once you do, having that band of supporters will help you stay disciplined to reach your goal.How have you achieved a difficult goal? How did you do it?
  • Like many, you are probably very good at setting goals–but not quite so goodat achieving them.You make New Year’s resolutions, promosing to yourself to lose weight, exercise more, or get organized. A couple of weeks into a new year, and you find you resolve without energy, along with your goals. According to a poll by the time management firm Franklin Covey, many personal goals did not make it to the end of January and most people eventually forget about their goals before the year is over .It is same thing at work. Companies establish all kinds of missions statements andkey performance indicators, and then often fail to rationally work as a team.Why are you so bad at goal setting?  What is blocking your mind and focus? Here are five probably ‘awarenss’:
  • 1. You underestimate how hard it isDiet books and ads too often promise full body make overs in 30 days, 60 days, 90 days? Be real!Achieving meaningful goals usually take a lot of work. Know from the start that losing 1 kg, or increasing sales 10%, will take a lot of time and effort. Do not give up too easy or get caught up in daily errands and distractions. By knowing the difficulties, you can be mentally prepared to meet inevitablechallenges.
  • 2. You didn’t “own” your goal.A goal that is destined for failure = “I’m just doing this because my boss wants me to” is. If you’re doing something to please someone,not because you believe it is necessary, you are going to find it impossible as soon asyou encounter aninterruption.It is verytempting to tell yourself, “I’m incredibly busy” or I’ll get to this tomorrow.”  Waiting for a “tomorrow” usually means never.It is very easy to waste hours of in a work day on chatting or surfing the internet aimlessly. If you want to meet that 10% target, you need to be self-motivated and be committed to achieving it.
  • 3. Your goal wasn’t clear, or measurable.“Increasing customer satisfaction” is too general. 1. You need to identify the specific, quantifiable goal so that you can measure your progress on a regular basis. Improving customer retention by 5 percent2.Regular monitoringreinforce your strategy and help you stay on track.See retention goes up or down3.Very few people cankeep focused on difficult-to-achieve goal, without periodically checking to see how they are doing
  • 4. You didn’t realize the rewards would be modest.If you set a goal to increase sales 10%, and so faryou have manage to achieve 2%, a sense of satisfaction may not be there. Progress frequently is incremental, and slower than we would like it to be. The key is to remember that fact, so you continue to work and find ways to improve.
  • 5.  You tried to do it alone.There is a very good reason why so many dieters need to join to support groups. A community can help tocheer us when the going gets tough. Public sharing of your goal can help make you more accountable to your own promise.You need to have the courageand humility–to publicly admit that you need to do better. Supporters will help you stay focus to reach your goal.How have you achieved a difficult goal? How did you do it?
