What Leaders Have to Say About Goals
I recently created a list of my personal and professional goals. It was a new task for me, seeing as I have only been in the professional world for a few months now. Setting professional goals should be more short term, easily measureable, and reachable. As a marketer, who invests a lot of time in social media and content marketing, we need to celebrate the small wins and always be one step ahead of the game. Here are a few quotes that constantly inspire me to keep moving forward and always reboot my positive attitude and energy at work!
"It is not enough to take steps which may someday lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise." – Goethe
"Begin with the end in mind." – Stephen Covey
"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal." – Henry Ford
"A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at." – Bruce Lee
"Most "impossible" goals can be met simply by breaking them down into bite size chunks, writing them down, believing them, and then going full speed ahead as if they were routine." – Don Lancaster
"Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment." – Jim Rohn
"My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them." – Richard Branson
"If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things." – Albert Einstein
"The game has its ups and downs, but you can never lose focus of your individual goals and you can't let yourself be beat because of lack of effort." – Michael Jordan
If these don’t inspire you to make and achieve your goals, then I don’t know what will! When I made my professional and personal goals for August, I separated them into short term and long-term goals. This made it easy to focus my efforts where I needed to. Use this advice when creating your own goals, both professional and personal!
