Set for success


Set for success

Decisions have been made, you know what you want and the stage is set for success. Or is it? Deciding what you want and setting goals is often a step taken. For many, however, the goals set are never realised. I believe there is a more effective way to commit to a life that rocks by using an alternative to goal setting.

I’m a goal setter from way back. My family, teams and clients and I have kicked a lot of personal and business goals. But as time passed I saw that setting and achieving a goal does not necessarily bring fulfilment. In fact I saw a lot of high achievers who were not happy or fulfilled because, at some point as they climbed the ladder of success, fulfilment had escaped them. I did that for years but have now learnt a better way.

I’ve felt that ‘ouch’ myself, and it was a painful but a great tipping point. As a result I teach an alternative to goal setting that delivers life-changing results. Fulfilment comes from moving forward in a direction aligned with our values — setting what I call value-based directions rather than goals.

I discovered through this life changing exercise:
• If you want achievement set goals.
• If you want achievement and fulfilment set value-based directions.

So back to the beginning – if every action starts with a decision, moving forward needs to start with making decisions aligned with your values. And as Roy Disney said, “When your values are clear to you making decisions becomes easier.”

A goal achieved will get things done but a value-based direction will get the things done that matter.

Every Minute Counts and You Can Have It All!
