Did you set New Years resolutions for yourself? Or maybe you opted for goals or intentions this year? My choice for the second year in a row is a mantra. It’s written down on a post it note and I see it everyday.
Regardless of the direction you took, how much stickability do your goals, resolutions or intentions, have for you?
Most goal setting research focuses on how productive and effective individuals are in an organizational setting. The infographic below tells a great story about most people and goals or resolutions. Interesting to me, is that all these goals are ones I might have set in the past but, they are not relevant for me now. And, except for one which was never a goal to begin with, at one time or another, those goals were achieved.
This infographic succinctly illustrates why if you have set goals this year, it’s important to commit to them.
