Commit to your Goals!

Setting the right goals for the right reasons and how to stay motivated to achieve them


Quick Summary

Goals are an important part of life personally and professionally. In many cases not achieving a goal has more to do with the goal itself than one’s ability to reach the goal.   

In this program I cover the 5 ‘right’ reasons for setting goals and compare them to the 5 ‘wrong’ reasons, and 10 ways to stay motivated to achieve them. Whether one is setting goals for the workplace, or for personal development, the content of this program delivers great tactics for ensuring success.  

If you want an actionable, highly inspirational, and effective program that delivers real life skills to be implemented immediately, then “Committing to your Goals” is for you.

Presentation Outline

Drawing upon real-world experience and examples I will customize a program to fit your needs and format. Here is the step-by-step approach learning how to set and achieve goals.

Set the right goals for the right reasons: In this section I share 5 ‘right’ reasons for setting a goal compared to 5 ‘wrong’ reasons. The right reasons are:

Intrinsic: Goals you pursue because they are inherently satisfying and personally meaningful.

Authentic: Goals that help you feel authentic while you are pursuing the goal.

Pursuit: It is easier to reach a goal that propels you to a positive outcome versus a negative outcome.  

Harmonious: Goals should not conflict – goals need to be harmonious with each other so they can be accomplished without contention or conflict.

Activity Based: Goals that include new experiences, new opportunities or new challenges are easier to reach.

10 ways to stay motivated to achieve your goals:

  • Expect resistance – learn how to deal with resistance to your goals
  • Learn to incent yourself – learn to self-motivate
  • Experientialize accomplishing the goal
  • Overcome the ‘boredom’ factor
  • Create sub-goals that lead to the main goal
  • Celebrate your accomplishments
  • Share your goals with others
  • Commit with passion – own your goals
  • Develop greater self-discipline by practicing on ‘silly’ goals
  • Learn how use failure to propel you toward your goals

This session is dynamic, engaging and memorable. Attendees leave the program with real skills they can implement immediately and experience a dramatic increase in their ability to make and keep goals.
