Everyone knows it - most goals, resolutions, decisions seem attainable at first but after a while we realize that our initial enthusiasm got the best of us. This happens because most people are not good at defining their goals - and success is built on carefully defined professional goals, not on hasty decisions and unrealistic optimism.

Defining and Achieving Professional Goals

Dorie Clark

Overview

It's one thing to say: "I want to succeed", and it's something completely different to come up with a set of attainable, concrete goals and stick with them in the years to come. First, you have to identify the most important elements of your professional life and career. Next, you'll have to limit yourself to a specific number of goals, instead of including every goal you can think of in your professional plan. Finally, you'd want to reward yourself at the ideal points of time in order to keep your motivation high.

As you've probably realized by now, this is easier said than done, which is why most people never define their professional goals and never actualize their potential. Dorie Clark is a Professor of Business Administrator and a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review, and her goal is to help you use the innate talents you possess to provide you a clear guideline and a set of techniques for defining and achieving professional goals.

Favorite Quote

"Goal-setting is often something we think about once a year, usually around December 31st. Instead, if we put just a little more focus on the process throughout the year, it turns out we can accomplish far more and get disproportionate returns."
