S.M.A.R.T. Goal setting with NLP- Timeline Therapy !!!
“You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about… Put your future in good hands – your own.”—Mark Victor Hansen
Goals have to be designed in a specific way with specific characteristics to be effective. The 8% know that if you’re serious about your goal, it needs to be written and have certain basic ingredients. The simplest way to remember these critical ingredients is by using the abbreviation SMART.
It came out of extensive research that began in the late 1960’s. Dr. Edwin Locke and Dr. Gary Latham spent decades researching effective goal setting. They not only ran their own experiments but reviewed hundreds of studies from other researchers. The studies looked at the effect of goals on everyone from tree logging operators to typists to families.
In the 1970’s, John Grinder and Richard Bandler, who founded NLP (neuro linguistic programming), added their insights into how the mind works to succeed—or fail—in achieving goals. They incorporated this practical knowledge into Locke and Latham’s essential ingredients.
Setting goals is a common practice nowadays in business and is vital in terms of our own personal development. We all know that if you do not set goals and objectives, write business plans then you are at the mercy of fate and fate is random. You will not get what you want unless you decide what it is that you want.
You also get what at you focus on, so you might as well focus on what it is that you want.
There are various models that will assist you in setting your goals.
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” -Henry David Thoreau
