Make Goals

Tip #10

Bend it Like Beckham - Make Goals

Bend it Like Beckham - Make Goals

“Give me a stock clerk with a goal and I’ll give you a man who will make history. Give me a man with no goals, and I’ll give you a stock clerk.”
J.C. Penney

Goal setting is critical to having a positive attitude. I recently heard an author on Oprah talk about “The Law of Attraction.” I heard the same theory years ago phrased as “where the mind goes, energy flows." When you focus on your job search, you feel energized and positive results will happen. In fact, your job search can become an obsession. Some people will spend every waking moment focused on finding a new job. Do you doubt they will be successful?

Your mind’s “interest” wants to give you what you want, but you need to make every effort possible to ask. Written goals are a very clear-cut way of "asking" the universe.

Goals need to be S.M.A.R.T.

S – Specific and simple. Stated in the present with sensory-based language.
M – Manageable, measurable, and motivational. I can, I do, and I feel.
A – Attainable and achievable. They should be a stretch, but very possible.
R – Relevant, risk oriented, challenge/skill based.
T – Track-able and timed. Measure the process and set dates of accomplishment.
