A goal is essentially a desired result or anticipated outcome that a person imagines, plans and commits to achieve, it must have a deadline or time-frame or else it is simply a wish
You can set goals in many areas of life, they can be centred around career, health, relationships or learning. They can be linked, so you may decide to take a leadership course (Learning) to improve your career opportunities.
Be sure to consider how your goals are congruent with each other, for instance, if you commit to take a course that will need to be done in your spare time and you have also want to spend more time with your family, is that actually goes to work?
When setting your goals it’s important to know what’s important to you and where you are heading. This is where a motivational map will help you set goals in line with what’s motivating you.
Once you have set your goals, use you motivational map to link to why that goal is important to you. For instance, if one of your goals is to write a book and one of your top motivator is the Expert motivator that would link to sharing your knowledge.
If completing your own motivational map would help you to set your goals you can purchase the How to stay energised at work course which you’ll find here
