Goal Setting – April 2010

Introduction

Hey Team, I’m a little late putting this one in motion.  Last week took an unexpected turn but I’m not complaining.

My goal-based activity is move along but at a slower clip.  I need to get started or I’m going to embarass myself. 

How are you doing??

 Context Setting for New Readers – Welcome! On this site, I’ve invested considerable time sharing, exploring, and refining my approach to goal setting.  I try to outline goals along 8 unique fronts which together help me – as I accomplish my targets – remain rounded and balanced. My eight fields of focus include:Spiritual, Financial, Career, Personal Development, Physical, Family, Social, and Household.I also layer time horizons across each category to ensure I am able execute in the moment while maintaining an alertness in the end game.For 2010, I am incorporating a new facet into my experiment in self improvement – Public Accountability – and that’s what you’ve stumbled into. Please feel free to check out any of my previous articles on this topic for additional context and exploration.      Man in Full     4th Quarter     Accomplish Goals by Having Them
