Why Goal-Setting Doesn’t Work

Have you ever wondered why some people reach goals and others never do?
Here are seven reasons for missing goals:

1.Some people suffer from Excusitis, a rare disease that affects their ability to take action on their goals. Every time they start to take action on a particular goal, they come up with an excuse as to why they can’t start right now. Examples: I would love to start that new project today, however: I have to have my cat groomed. I’ll start that diet next week, right after this birthday cake. I’ll start my exercise program when I get some new tennis shoes.

2.Lack of communication is another reason some people don’t reach their goals. Dialogue between boss and employee, parent and child, or husband and wife are essential to obtaining your goals.

3.Lack of teamwork is another reason for missing goals.

Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things. But just look at what they can do when they stick together.

4.Apathy or loss of interest in a goal. Because some goals take longer than others, people lose interest. This is why it’s a good idea to set small reachable goals, rather than long unreasonable ones.

5.Improper use of time is a major factor in missing a goal.
We must learn to “Think, Organize and Plan.” Preparing for the next day the night before helps us to find the time to work on our goals.
Develop a to do list, to help organize our day.

6.Self doubt and lack of confidence both play a role in missing our goals.

7.Remembering past misfortunes affects our ability to reach goals.
