If this is the case, you have a deficiency in setting performance goals. From the above, it is now very obvious that goal setting is a very important process you need to consider before embarking in whatever endeavor. According to a study conducted in the 1970s, conscious goal setting or planning affects action.
Perhaps the individual, alone or as a part of a group, has a prior immersion with personal or career planning. Why add another goal setting process to an already informed person or group? The principle behind professional goal setting The good thing about this form of goal setting when conducted by an institution or a group is that, it focuses not only for the common good of the group but also for the individual members.
Be determined. Sometimes, there are goals that you fail to achieve. Do not let these simple failures halt you when attempting to achieve your life goals. Determined people would surely not falter. Moreover, life goals could be made easier to achieve if you have focus. Know what you really want, why you want it, and how you could possibly attain it.
The worksheet can also be proved useful as a “scratch” paper. Of course it is but natural to commit some error in an earlier goal planning session. The benefit of putting down the thinking product is the easiness that it can be corrected, paraphrase, or even revised it on the spot. This “revision” process is also very important.
Take the time to sit down and list all your goals and aspirations, and craft a chart to see whether you are near or far from any of these goals. For others, career goal setting is no more than a few minutes of talking it out with some friends, or silently thinking about it, albeit melancholy, over a bottle of beer.
Just like your personal or professional goal setting, the process of setting performance goals for the employees should begin with the listing down of the company or organization s need. And if on the personal level, you consider it important to converse with yourself, how much more for the employees and the company that they are working with?
