Goal Setting for Success

Goal setting and achievement can be critical for the success and growth of a microbusiness. So why are so many goals forgotten, abandoned, or never reached? And how do you know you are setting the right goals for your small business? This podcast will explain how different people and their personalities affect how they interact with goal setting, and offers tips for success.

One problem many people have is setting deadlines when they mean to be goal setting. Are you guilty of this?

“I think a lot of people confuse setting deadlines with goal setting. And I think there is a big difference between the two… I would say sometimes I set deadlines for myself to get stuff done. It feels like a goal, because I can check it off my list. I can see that I accomplished something. But really when I give it some thought, it’s very different.”

“I met some goals. No, you’ve got stuff done.” – Sharon DeLay
