Quantifying Goals (02:47)


People aren't very good at achieving personal goals. One mistake is to set vague goals. Measure yourself quantitatively and set a target for improvement.

Realistic Goals (01:41)

Some set impossible goals, or too many at once; organizations often have this second problem. Sometimes we need to break a larger, currently impossible goal down into smaller goals.

Conflicting Goals (02:10)

A common problem is setting conflicting goals. Prioritizing and balancing are key.

Learning From Experience (03:00)

People setting goals often fail to learn from failure at the same goals and consider what went wrong. Setting a goal you have already achieved is also a mistake- push yourself; it helps to team with a friend.

Celebrating Goal Achievement (00:58)

Celebrating goal achievement is crucial, to recognize a milestone. High-achievers often never allow themselves to be satisfied, meaning there is no incentive to achieve the goal.

Mental Approaches (01:08)

Visualizing success is key to motivation. Expect setbacks so they do not discourage you.
