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!
Louie spoke at Lake Zurich High School for an 88 minute live presentation. He brought a car in and demonstrated general maintenance/safety items (ie: tire changing, jumper cables, fluid top offs…etc). The school did it as an in-school field trip. “Hi Louie and Steve, Just wanted to say thank you again for coming this morning to talk to my classes! To be honest I had no idea you spoke about so many different topics and could bring so much information and diversity to the experience, I really appreciated it. I know it took some of the kids by surprise too, but I think that made it even more effective. I can’t wait to hear their reactions tomorrow, I’ve never seen them shake hands with the guest speaker before so I know you impacted some (if not all) on some level!! I’d love for you both to return next semester if you are willing and able. I’ll only have one class so it will be easier to get them under the hood more and have an open conversation.”Lauren Engelhardt
“We now have the tools to be more efficient and resourceful” “I am writing this letter to let you know how pleased we were with Louie. Thanks to Louie’s extremely motivational seminar, Berger Excavating is making huge strides. We now have the tools to be more efficient and resourceful. Not only was I surprised by the event, but the positive feedback from all involved has been overwhelming. Louie had the ability to bring everyone closer as a company and want to work together to make a stronger team. I would strongly recommend this training to anyone and everyone. After the way the economy has been in such a down-turn, this was what we really needed to re-group and focus on the opportunities of the future.”Julie Berger-Chamberlin – President Berger Excavating Contractors
