I have been writing one year goals since I was 16 years old, and last year was my worst year for actually accomplishing the goals that I wrote. One of the principles that I teach about successful goal setting is the need to be flexible and make adjustments to your goals if needed. Because of all that was happening in our world this last year I became ultra flexible, and I was making adjustments to almost all of my goals every week. It is hard to hit the bullseye when it moves all of the time.
Some people quit setting goals if they have a bad year accomplishing them because they don’t like feeling like a failure. I get irritated at myself and write a couple extra BHAGS, figure out what I did wrong, make adjustments, oops fell asleep here a couple of hours ago and now I am to rummy to think straight.
