How To Tackle The Goal Setting Problem Nobody Talks About 

How To Tackle The Goal Setting Problem Nobody Talks About  | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
There are myriad goal-setting books on the market and an equal number of goal-setting systems, each with its own fans. Much of this ignores the plain truth – most people, when you ask them, don’t know what they want. Goals, beyond a daily to-do list, are a hazy concept for most.

donhornsby's insight:
We have somehow confused adulthood with having less physical pleasure in our working day but it’s totally OK to devise a life that pleasures your senses (in case you were wondering). If nothing else is working why not stop thinking and come to your senses?

5 Ways To Think Differently About Motivation When Setting 2016 Goals

5 Ways To Think Differently About Motivation When Setting 2016 Goals | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Learn 5 new ways to think about and harness your motivation to achieve your 2016 goals and resolutions.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): We’re all capable of improving, regardless of what natural abilities we were born with or without. It’s important then to acknowledge our successes or failures and remind ourselves that they are a direct result of our own effort or lack thereof, not of factors outside our control.

 

It’s the difference between having a “fixed mindset” or a “growth mindset”. A “fixed mindset” assumes that our abilities can’t be changed in any meaningful way, and success or failure is the reinforcement of the traits we were “born” with. When we have a “growth mindset,” on the other hand, we see obstacles and challenges as opportunities for growth beyond our existing abilities.

 

These two mindsets spur a great deal of our behavior so it’s essential to recognize if you tend toward a fixed mindset and try to shift your thinking toward a growth mindset.

How Many Goals Are You Chasing Right Now (And Do You Have Too Many)? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
Are you going after too many different goals right now?

 

Do you have a long list of projects that you rarely make any progress on?


There’s no “perfect” number of goals … but, generally, the fewer goals you have, the higher your chances of succeeding with each.

You Need Clarity of Purpose to Succeed 

You Need Clarity of Purpose to Succeed  | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
Napoleon Hill once said “There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.
People who are constantly striving to achieve something meaningful in life crave clarity. It’s the only way to reach deeper into yourself to find out what makes you come alive. We all start from somewhere confusing, because you probably like to do a lot of things. But once you define your purpose, you will become unstoppable.
Successful people have a definite sense of direction. They have a clear understanding of what success means to them. Everything they do is consistent with their goals. They look forward and decide where they want to be. Their day to day actions help them move closer to their vision.
Once you find your why, you will be more careful and selective about your daily actions.

donhornsby's insight:
Think about it: When you feel unclear about a goal, you have difficulty achieving it. And if you don’t know why you should do something, you lack committed to taking action.

Are Your Goals and Your Purpose the Same Thing?

Are Your Goals and Your Purpose the Same Thing? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
There is no shortage of preachers when it comes to having goals. Self-help books and audio and video and live seminars abound with goal-setting and goal-achievement as a central tenet of their teaching.

Via Barb Jemmott
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Setting goals without knowing your purpose is a fruitless and unfulfilling business. Focusing on goals rather than purpose is epidemic in this world, and ignoring purpose altogether is quite common. So if goals stand in the way of the fulfillment of your purpose, they have to go, and they can go as they are not required.
