“Goal Setting for 2013” - Professor M.S.Rao
"A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline." - Harvey Mackay
Happy Christmas and New Year – 2013!
As we are entering into a new year we must set our goals in such a way that we will do the things in a different manner to accomplish and achieve the impossible. When we do routine things routinely we get routine results. In contrast, when we do things differently we will achieve unique outcomes. Hence, from this year onwards let us change the way we think, do and act to make the future better.
If you want to become a successful professional in your area of interest you must invest 1,000 hours regularly. It helps you establish and build your professional brand. Malcolm Gladwell, the Author of Outliers rightly said, “People who thrive put in at least 1000 hours of sustained, consistent training to reach their potential.” Hence, choose your passionate area and then invest your precious time, energy and resources into it for 1,000 hours and I am sure you will be an expert in your domain and an authority in it. People look to you for your guidance and advice and you grow as a leader.
Remember that if you invest for 10,000 hours in your passionate area (3 years approximately) consistently, you become a regional celebrity. If you invest 20,000 hours (6 years approximately) you become a national celebrity. If you invest for 30,000 hours (9 years approximately) consistently you become an international celebrity.
Set SMART goals where SMART is the acronym for specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time bound. Ensure that you ink your goals and read daily twice after you get up from bed and before you go to bed. Divide your goals into short-term and long-term goals and align them without any contradiction. Keep moving forward by taking feedback regularly. One day you will find yourself on the top of the world where everyone looks to you for your guidance and you enjoy great respect.
All the best!
Life is great!
