Goal Setting

Nicholas Bate adds to his basics list with seven ideas regarding goals. Good ideas.

  1. A goal can be set anytime, not just new year.

  2. A goal needs a walk, some writing and considerable reflection to make it real. 

  3. A goal set over a glass of wine, at a party, in the crowd when heart, mind and soul are truly (rightly) elsewhere is unlikely to bind your will.

  4. Goals may be big. But they need to have time friendly (20 minutes) and brain friendly (‘no problem-I can do that’) first steps.

  5. When setting the goal, agree the first three ever-so-easy steps.

  6. Don’t wait for January. Break out of the crowd.

  7. Set a breakthrough one today.
