Ed Sykes of The Sykes Group helps us set and achieve goals effectively by employing some key steps. Here are my key insights from his piece.
- Take the time to shut out external distractions and truly contemplate your long-term goals, write them down and adjust them as they grow and change
- Break your goals down and set short incremental time periods for achieving elements of them
- More than ever in these changing times you need to be flexible and adapt your goals to your situation—don’t forget to keep reminding yourself also as to why you want to achieve something; keep your passion for it alight
