Goal Setting Intro Pt 1

February 24, 2011 — Leave a comment

In order to arrive someplace you have to know where you’re going. This is a basic and obvious statement that can be passed over and disregarded. But if you do that you’ll lose the power of God’s creative principle of the vision.

You can call them goals, a vision, purpose, a target, what I want to get done or anything else but the bottom line is this . . . I need to get something accomplished, I need to reach my destination.

This destination could be improving your marriage, finding a better job, increasing your sales, repairing your car, going on a vacation. The common thread is that you have something you want to accomplish and the basic process is the same no matter what you’re talking about.

If your goal is to have your car running smoothly than you need to make some basic plans. You need to find a good mechanic, ask someone who they would recommend, call and schedule an appointment, find a ride back to work, find a ride to pick up the repaired car, and you need to make sure you can afford the repair.

The questions are the same no matter what aspects of life we are dealing with.

1. What is the end result I am going for? What is the goal? What is the target?

2. Whose help do I need to reach this target?

3. What resources do I need to reach my goal?

4. Starting from the end result I desire and working backwards, what steps do I need to take to reach my goal?

Just taking the time to think through this process will put you ahead of about 85% of the rest of the population. (See Part 2)
