Goal Setting: Is there another way?

If you’re a Service Leaver, Veteran or Reservist who is adapting to life after the military, my weekly emails will help you.

We’ve all been there, sitting down with your line manager or boss on a dreary Wednesday afternoon and you’re being urged to come up with a set of new and exciting goals for the appraisal year.

Mainly with service / organisation need in the forefront of your mind.

So it’s no surprise that we don’t value goal setting.  

It’s just not worked for us in the past.

What do you think of when you think about goal setting?

I love goal setting and never plan anything without them

Goal setting is pointless, it never works out as planned

Urgh, not again. I hate it. I do them but never actually DO them

They are something for the annual appraisal and don’t really mean anything

Ok, if you love goals – great! 

But if you checked off any of the other statements, you are not alone. 

So let’s think again.

Because whether you love or hate goals, something compels you to make progress and that suggests you’re curious to see if there is another way.
