Part V: Your Personal Development Progra... > Setting Goals to Achieve Your Vision

Chapter 31. Setting Goals to Achieve Your Vision

A goal is a statement of what you intend to accomplish. It is an end result, an achievement. A goal is the reason for doing what you do; it is not a task. Tasks are actions taken to meet goals. Many people make lists of things to do, and they may do everything on their lists but still feel that their lives are empty because they have not clarified their values and set appropriate goals. They are people who do a lot but gain little satisfaction from their accomplishments.

Self-empowered people not only accomplish most of what they set out to do, but they also have a clear idea of why they are doing what they do. This helps them enjoy great satisfaction from what they accomplish. If your career value is achievement and promotion, your goals might include completing a business degree or learning more about the opportunities within your organization. If you value a good marriage, your goals might include participating in psychotherapy or counseling or in a couples workshop.
