Goal setting for 2018.
If you’ve completed your goal setting that’s fantastic news, but you shouldn’t worry if you’re still procrastinating. Procrastination has had a bad press of late so it may be refreshing for you to hear we’re confident you’ll deliver on time and to a high standard. We know this because you’re still learning and thinking about the process even if you’ve not put pen to paper, or fingers to a keyboard just yet.
What’s your motivational style?
If you need to complete your goal setting quickly, to know it’s done, chances are you’re task driven. Or do you need the pressure of an approaching deadline to galvanize you to action? Well, the good news is – the content of this blog is relevant to goal setting for both procrastinators and task-driven individuals alike. This is also great for those of you who don’t feel they fit into a box. If you feel the context of the task determines your motivation level – you’ll want to read my next blog. Whatever your style, you’ve either completed your goal setting or started it (even in your unconscious mind)! We would like to ask you all the following question…
Did you factor in how you wanted to feel during your journey?
It’s a serious question. Our research has shown right about now would be the perfect time to factor this in. Why? Because how you feel about your career and your business is the most important factor in deciding whether 2018 has been good to you or not. Makes sense, right? We suggest you take 7 minutes to watch this short TED talk by scientist and map maker, Daniele Quercia.
