“Goals Guide: Best Practices in Setting and Pursuing Goals”

Setting your goals properly is a big and important undertaking. Goals are common, but that doesn’t mean we’re good at setting and achieving them. Far from it. Many of us put a fair amount of time into goal-setting but very little time into designing good systems and processes for goal-pursuit. The result: falling short on our goals fairly often. Time to change that! This Goals Guide includes:

  • The Benefits of Setting and Pursuing Goals
  • The Most Common Mistakes in Goal-Setting and Goal-Pursuit
  • Goal-Setting Best Practices: Beyond SMART Goals
  • Goal-Pursuit: Best Practices
  • Related Articles and Resources
