Part II: Focusing on the Big Picture > Blocks to Goal Achievement

Chapter 9. Blocks to Goal Achievement

Even after you and your supervisor agree on professional goals, achieving those goals may require the ability to overcome barriers or “blocks.” A block is anything that prevents you from reaching desired outcomes, causing frustration and pressure. Typical blocks include:

  • Personal problems such as poor health, anxiety about family, lack of knowledge or skills and low self-esteem

  • External pressures such as economic recession, low customer demand and excessive competition
