Goal Setting


Goal setting involves establishing specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-targeted (S.M.A.R.T ) goals. Work on the theory of goal-setting suggests that it's an effective tool for making progress by ensuring that participants in a group with a common goal are clearly aware of what is expected from them. On a personal level, setting goals helps people work towards their own objectives—most commonly with financial or career-based goals.


Goal setting features as a major component of personal development literature:

• "Goals provide a sense of direction and purpose" (Goldstein).

• "Goal setting capitalize on the human brain's amazing powers: Our brains are problem-solving, goal-achieving machines.

• "Goals convert the strategic objectives into specific performance targets. Effective goals clearly state what, when, and who and are specifically measurable.

Setting goals affects outcomes in four ways:

1.Choice: goals narrow attention and direct efforts to goal-relevant activities, and away from perceived undesirable and goal-irrelevant actions.

2.Effort: goals can lead to more effort; for example, if one typically produces 4 widgets an hour, and has the goal of producing 6, one may work more intensely towards the goal than one would otherwise.

3.Persistence: Someone becomes more prone to work through setbacks if pursuing a goal.

4.Cognition: Goals can lead individuals to develop and change their behavior.
