					Goal Setting

„You can want to do the right thing,
and you can even want to do it for the right
reasons.
But if you don’t apply the right principles, you
can still hit
a wall.“
  Is your Setting Goals causing you
  problems?

You can tell when...
 Your future is hazy and ill-defined, and you only
  WISH for things to be different.
 Having no CLEAR destination, you're often all
  dressed up with nowhere to go.
 You may have daily successes, but LACK REAL
  PROGRESS in any one direction.
 You never live up to your full potential because
  there's never anything IMPORTANT enough for you
  to give 100%.
 You believe that life could be better, but you're just
  not sure how.
Are you good manager of your
Goals ?
  However, when your Set Goals color is strong and
    vibrant...
   Your future is bright and positive because you
    know precisely WHAT YOU WANT AND WHY.
   You have CLEAR TARGETS to focus on and to
    guide each day's actions and commitments.
   Your days and weeks build upon each other in a
    straight line, aiming towards new destinations --
    even GREATER than the last.
   You believe that life is INCREDIBLE because you
    are setting and achieving INCREDIBLE GOALS.
1. The Power of Goals


   Goal setting is obviously a powerful
    process. It’s based on the principle of
    focus.
   It’s a common denominator of successful
    individuals and organizations.
   If we hold on to our goals, we become
    masters instead of servants. But if we let
    them go, we often feel uneasy or guilty
    that we didn’t keep our commitment.
There are many reasons why we don’t
achieve our goals.

   Sometimes the goals we set are
    unrealistic. We create expectations that
    don’t reflect any sense of self-awareness.
   Sometimes we set goals and work to
    achieve them, but either the
    circumstances change or we change.
   Sometimes the goals we achieve are at
    the expense of other more important
    things in our lives. (Accomplishing one
    goal impacts other areas of life in a
    negative way.)
Goal setting is powerful because it
accesses the power of:
   Creative imagination
    We use our creative imagination to visualize of
    possibilities beyond our direct experience.
   Independent will.
    We use our independent will to make choices, to
    transcend background, scripting, and
    circumstance.

When we set a goal, we’re saying, „I can
 envision something different from what is,
 and choose to focus my efforts to create it.“
   Self-awareness
       The accurate assessment of our capacity and the
        balance in our Personal Integrity Account.
       It helps us recognize and respect our need to stretch,
        to push the limits, to grow.


   Conscience
       An effective goal is in harmony with our inner
        imperatives.
         It helps us to recognize that there are principles
        independent of us.
            It helps us to be humble and open to growth and
            change, to realize that we are neither omniscient nor
            omnipotent when we set a goal. Situation may
            change. We may change. And we can’t act with
            integrity without being open to that change.
    How to set and achieve principle-
    based goals

  Without principles, goals will never have the
  power to produce quality-of-life results. A
  principle-based goal is all three:
„the right thing, for the right reason, in the
  right way“

   Through conscience, we connect with the passion of
    vision and mission and the power of principles.
   Through creative imagination, we envision possibility
    and synergistic, creative ways to achieve it.
   Through self-awareness, we set goals with realistic
    stretch and stay open to conscience-driven change.
   Through independent will, we make purposeful choice
    and carry it out, we have the integrity to walk our talk.
     What? Why? How?


   What? A principle-based „what“ focuses on growth and
    contribution.
   Why? Why do I want to do it? Does my goal grow out of
    mission, needs, and principles? Does it empower me to
    contribute through my roles? It isn’t just setting and
    achieving goals that creates quality of life.
   How? How am I going to do it? What are the key principles
    that will empower me to achieve my purpose? What
    strategies can I use to implement these principles?

    Once we create alignment between the „what“ and the
    „why,“ we’re ready to look at the „how.“ Doing the right
    thing for the right reason in the right way is the key to
    quality of life, and that can only come through the power of
    an educated conscience that aligns us with vision, mission,
    and true north.
  What? Why? How?
WHAT:
     My goal is to maintain a healthy, well-disciplined body.
WHY:
      I will surely increase my self-confidence
      I can build my personal character strength
      I can have the strength, endurance, and physical
       presentation necessary to effectively fulfil my missions.
      I can be an example to others in effective health
       maintenance.
HOW:
     Good nutrition.
     Physical maintenance.
     Mind/body connection.
     Focus. I will attend to specific health problems.
