With another year starting, many of us have thought about things we’d like to do differently in 2022. For some people, setting goals is like breathing. They always have something new for which they’re striving. For others, setting goals is stressful. They are content where they are and aren’t looking for anything to change. Or they’re too fearful to try something new.
Whether you’re the kind of person who likes to set goals or the one who does it reluctantly, we must be careful to not set ourselves up for failure. In this issue of The Messenger, we will look at how to set goals that will last throughout the year.
A survey was recently done that found that the top New Year’s resolution goals centered around a person’s self-improvement. Eating healthier, exercising, stopping smoking. The second category had to do with their career.
In this month’s Messenger, we will look at a goalsetting framework developed by Edwin Locke.
