Knowing where you’re going
It’s the beginning of another year, and like every year at the beginning of January, I’m wondering where the time has gone. I can’t believe it’s already 2012! But like most people this time of year I’m thinking about the year that just passed and making resolutions for the new year. Last year I had personally resolved to visit ten new countries. It was an ambitious goal but, since I travel a lot, I had a plan to make it happen. Unfortunately I fell a bit short of my goal—I only made it to eight new countries in 2011—because some personal scheduling issues thwarted my plans. I’m not too concerned. Things happen. I made a solid attempt and didn’t quite get there.
I strongly believe in setting goals, both personally and professionally. But to me goals aren’t meant to be pulled out of thin air. Goals should make sense, they should challenge you but still be attainable, and you should have a plan for how to reach them.
