As 2017 starts off a lot of people are setting new goals. Today I wanted to discuss the 2 types of goals.
The first type of goal is what most companies and individuals set. They are simply goals to accomplish something specific. This gives you an end result of having something. That something is anything you can imagine and set your mind to. It could include a job, a spouse, a certain amount of money, a vacation, a car and the list for these types of things is endless.
The second type of goal is something to be. These types of goals are harder to track for progress but in the end much more rewarding than the acquiring something type of goals of the first type. When you set out after these type of goals you are want to “BE”-come someone new, different and more positive. You set a goal to BE a better listener, to BE more kind and understanding, to BE funnier, to BE happier and this list goes on endlessly as well.
I am confident it is important to set goals of both types. In all goals that are bigger & better than where you are now you will find that personal and professional growth will always be the end result.
Good Luck on your journey and remember to dream big!
Have you ever had the opportunity of being in the pressence of a truly gifted speaker? I have…. Louie Sharp speaks from the bottom of his heart about truly important matters, not fluff. Louie presented a dinner meeting keynote address for the Libertyville Sunrise Rotary including spouses and guests. Everyone in the room was attentive for each and every second of his presentation and I received so many compliments about scheduling such a gifted speaker. Louie truly made a difference in everyone’s lives during that keynote speach.Linda Vadnais Libertyville Sunrise Rotary Board Member &
“Staff are still talking about your presentation…”
“Sorry it has taken me a week to get this to you. I want to thank you for coming out to the Mundelein Park District and providing us with a great training/presentation. Staff are still talking about your presentation and everyone that I have talked to, or other supervisors have talked to, really liked it and got something out of it. We had a number of staff that could not attend and I was wondering if the video that you taped on Friday is available to show those who missed last Friday. Many of the supervisors are asking about it. Thanks again for doing such a great job, it’s much appreciated.”
