Personal Goals

Meaning of Personal Goals

Individuals can set personal goals. A student may set a goal of a high mark in an exam. An athlete might run five miles a day. A traveler might try to reach a destination-city within three hours. Financial goals are a common example, to save for retirement or to save for a purchase.

Managing goals can give returns in all areas of personal life. Knowing precisely what one wants to achieve makes clear what to concentrate and improve on, and often subconsciously prioritizes the goal. However, successful goal adjustment (goal disengagement and goal re-engagement capacities) is also a part of leading a healthy life.

Goal setting and planning (“goal work”) promotes long-term vision, intermediate mission and short-term motivation. It focuses intention, desire, acquisition of knowledge, and helps to organize resources.

Efficient goal work includes recognizing and resolving all guilt, inner conflict or limiting belief that might cause one to sabotage one’s efforts. By setting clearly defined goals, one can subsequently measure and take pride in the accomplishment of those goals. One can see progress in what might have seemed a long, perhaps difficult, grind.

How to Achieve Personal Goals

Achieving complex and difficult goals requires focus, long-term diligence and effort (see Goal pursuit). Success in any field requires forgoing excuses and justifications for poor performance or lack of adequate planning; in short, success requires emotional maturity. The measure of believes that people have in their ability to achieve a personal goal also affects that achievement.

Long-term achievements rely on short-term achievements. Emotional control over the small moments of the single day makes a big difference in the long term.

Goal management in organizations

In organizations, goal management consists of the process recognizing or inferring goals of individual team-members, abandoning goals that are no longer relevant, identifying and resolving conflicts among goals, and prioritizing goals consistently for optimal team-collaboration and effective operations.

For any successful commercial system, it means deriving profits by making the best quality of goods or the best quality of services available to end-users (customers) at the best possible cost. Goal management includes:

  • assessment and dissolution of non-rational blocks to success
  • time management
  • frequent reconsideration (consistency checks)
  • feasibility checks
  • adjusting milestones and main-goal targets

Jens Rasmussen (human factors expert) and Morten Lind distinguish three fundamental categories of goals related to technological system management:

  1. production goals
  2. safety goals
  3. economy goals

Organisational goal-management aims for individual employee goals and objective to align with the vision and strategic goals of the entire organizations. Goal-management provides organizations with a mechanism [which?] to effectively communicate corporate goals and strategic objectives to each person across the entire organization. [citation needed] The key consists of having it all emanate from a pivotal source and providing each person with a clear, consistent organizational-goal message so that every employee understands how their efforts contribute to an enterprise’s success.

For example of goal types in business management:

  • Consumer goals:

    This refers to supplying a product or service that the market/consumer wants.

  • Product goals:

    This refers to supplying an outstanding value proposition compared to other products – perhaps due to factors such as quality, design, reliability and novelty.

  • Operational goals:

    This refers to running the organization in such a way as to make the best use of management skills, technology and resources

  • Secondary goals:

    This refers to goals which an organization does not regard as priorities.
