About 35% - 37% will say things like:
- 'I don't have time'
- 'I don't know how'
- 'I've got a pretty good idea of what I want but it's just in my head'
- 'My work goals are set by the boss. Not sure what I want in my personal life'
- 'I might fail to reach it'
- 'What if I succeed? Can I cope with the changes that will bring?'
And - more than 60% will say: 'I don't really know what I want to set goals on.'
They say things like:
- The project seems too big
- It feels as though it will take too long
- I want to be sure I'm recording what I really want and I've been too busy to give it a lot of thought
- ...... and more of the same.
Funny thing is, without exception, the tiny minority of people who do regularly write down their goals agree that the power in the goal-setting process is getting those bright ideas out of their heads and out in some way - in words or pictures. Every time we read a story about a sports star or a top achiever in any field of endeavour, they talk about their clear, well-thought-out and specific goals. Can you think of any exceptions?
