by Paul J. Meyer:
“Success is the progressive realization of worthwhile, predetermined, personal goals.”
Success is progress.
Progress towards a clear goal.
A goal that has worth.
A goal that is personal.
In other words, success is action that moves someone towards the accomplishment of goals that have been thought through and have great personal value to the person working towards them.
It’s simple stuff but you wouldn’t believe how many teams and organizations do not have really clear goals, with step-by-step action plans, that allow all members of that team or organization to exert their best efforts in achieving them, knowing why achieving those goals has a personal benefit to them as well as the company.
That is why goals are so important and why we work with all our clients to clarify their goals. It’s powerful stuff!
