Goal-setting is serious business. In fact, it is one of the most important elements in achievement. Yet, oddly enough it is one of the areas that most people spend the least amount of time on in pursuit of their goals. In addition to this, how a person goes about setting up their goals, is one of the main reasons why goals fail, but it is not the only reason.
No, there are actually a few other reasons why goal setting often fails, and we plan on addressing this issue for you today in this post. So, if you’ve been struggling with your goals lately, stick around, as we’ll be addressing some critical areas that could help you out significantly.
Now, the reason we rarely achieve the goals we set our for ourselves is not because we lack talent, the brains, or the drive. Nope, the reason many of us fail to reach our goals is due to goal setting failures, and there are four of them:
1. The Goal Was Not Structured Correctly
One of the most cited reasons for why goal-setting fails is due to the way the goals were set up from the beginning. Many people accidently structure their goals the wrong way.
What’s the wrong way? Setting goals that don’t align with the S.M.A.R.T. structure. If you haven’t heard of this structure, it is essentially a goal that is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time bound.
If your goals don’t include all five of these elements, then it isn’t a S.M.A.R.T. goal, and if it isn’t a smart goal, your chances of never reaching that goal decline dramatically.
2. The Goal Was Not Aligned With Your Values
The next most cited reason for goal setting failure, is creating goals that are not truly aligned with your values and sense of purpose. Goals that are set without paying homage to your values, will soon clash with even the best structured S.M.A.R.T. goal.
On top of this, when a goal is not aligned with your true purpose and your deepest values, you’ll typically throw in the towel when times get tough. In addition, when your goals align with your values, it reduces friction when actions steps are being taken. And the less friction and resistance you face on your journey towards achievement, the better your odds are of achieving the goal.
So, be sure to keep your values in mind when setting your goals.
3. The Goal Was Never Written Down
The last reason why goal-setting often fails is related to people’s failure to write down their goals. It seems like it wouldn’t be too big of a deal, but it is.
In fact, when you write down your goals a few things happen; you increase your motivation, you improve your ability to recall your aims – which lends to better monitoring and tracking, and writing down your goal also increases your odds of achieving the goal by 42%.
So, if you really want to achieve something, do yourself a favor the next time you are deciding on a goal, be sure to write it down.
4. Disciplined Wasn’t Applied
This last reason is why most of the first three reasons never get applied to goal-setting in the first place, and it has to do with applied discipline. Creating S.M.A.R.T. goals takes discipline. Taking the time to sort through what is valuable to you and your aims takes discipline, and taking the steps of writing down your goals in a way that will serve in the long-term requires discipline as well.
Self-discipline is critical to goal achievement and success, especially from the get go. So, if you lack self-discipline, don’t fret, know that you can build it up like a muscle. And you can remedy any shortcomings with determination and will power.
Goal Setting often fails, but it doesn’t have to. Now that you know why goal setting fails so often, you can better navigate the land mines that we all face when setting and pursuing our goals.
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” – Anthony RobbinsTweet Quote

HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE AND GET THINGS DONE
Success comes easily to the person who gets things done. To the successful, execution is everything. Executions is what leads to success. It doesn’t really matter if you are parent, a school teacher, a middle manager or a household manager. There is always room for more success. And if you aspire to become effective at the art of execution, more success can and will come your way.
You are an executive, whether you know it or not. If you have the power to make a decision, and the capacity to execute on that decision, you are an executive. The real question is, are you an effective one?
So, to help you become an effective executive, and as a result, a more successful person in general, we are publishing some simple practices that anyone can begin implementing today.
So, if you’re ready to learn how to be an effective executive, and master the art of getting things done, let’s get to it:
HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE
According to Peter Drucker, who is known to many as the father of modern management, there are 8 key practices that successful executives almost always partake in. Drucker observed that effective executives typically displayed a pattern of asking specific questions with regard to getting things done. And these questions and practices were the following:
1. Effective Executives Always Ask, “What Needs To Be Done?”
Effective executives routinely ask “what needs to be done?” This is a critical question to ask, because it helps us pinpoint the what is needed, and what we can do about it.
This question removes fluff form whatever scenario you may be facing, and helps us get to a clearer understanding of the actions we must immediately take.
2. Effective Executives Always Ask, “What Is Right For The Enterprise?”
By asking “What is right for the enterprise?”, you’ll be ensuring that you are being thoughtful in your decision making.
This is important, because if we choose to take action on something that is not right for all the people who will be impacted by our decision, we can accidently create more work for ourselves down the road.
As such, you should always consider what is right for the group, family, organization, or enterprise before taking action.
3. Effective Executives Always Develop Action Plans.
An effective executive creates a plan of action, and then sticks to that plan of action. By having a plan of action, you’ll be much more likely to get started, and you’ll ensure you are taking steps in their proper order.
By not having an action plan, you increase your chances of doing things that are not important to your main goals, or right for everyone who is involved. So, create an action plan and ensure your actions are thoughtful and your efforts are efficent.

4. Effective Executives Always Take Responsibility For Decisions.
Things don’t go as planned, it is a part of life. And when things go wrong, an effective executive always takes responsibility for the decisions made that lead to the outcome.
Similarly, when things go right, the effective executive should also take responsibility. Of course, it is most critical to take ownership however, when things don’t go as planned. By taking ownership, the effective executive streamlines course corrections, and facilitates getting back into action.
5. Effective Executives Always Take Responsibility For Communicating.
Communication is important to just about every activity in any organization, team, or marriage. And troubles typically arise when communication fails.
But, when ownership is taken as to why communications have failed, the issues that cause breakdowns are more readily addressed. And so long as issues are being addressed, issues can be resolved, and progress can be made.
So, if you consider yourself an effective executive, be sure you always take responsibility for communication.
6. Effective Executives Always Focus On Opportunities Rather Than Problems.
Leaders know that you get what you focus on. And that if you spend most of your time pointing out all of the problems your team, group, or enterprises has, you can miss out on opportunities that are easier to identify by those focused on opportunities.
For example, if you are always focused on how an team member, is doing something wrong, you’ll never see what they are doing right. In addition to that, you’ll never even think to find ways to leverage their strengths to your benefit, if all you focus on is their limitations.

7. Effective Executives Always Run Productive Meetings.
Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple once stated that “The longer the meeting, the less is accomplished.” Without a doubt, there is much truth to this. Which is why an effective executive doesn’t just hold a meeting to hold a meeting.
Effective executives hold meetings when there is truly a need for them. On top of this, they ensure that no time is wasted on things outside the scope of the meeting. Value is the focal point of the effective executive’s meetings, and unproductive meetings create little value.
As such, only hold meetings if they serve a purpose, are highly productive, and add value to the organization as a whole.
8. Effective Executives Think And Speak In “We” Rather Than “I”.
If you really want to know how to be an effective executive, you have to learn to begin thinking in “We” versus “I”. If you only focus on yourself, you’ll limit your impact.
But, when you think “We” and speak “We”, all your actions will be directed at moving the needle forward as a group and as a team. This is important, because all great things in business are rarely if ever done by just one person.
No they are not. But, they are almost always done by a team of people.
