Consider this quote from American philosopher and writer Elbert Hubbard;
“Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage, but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal.”
We are quickly approaching the mid-point of the year … so as a leadership coach who holds people accountable for their performance; I have a couple of questions for you:
Are you likely or unlikely to achieve your 2011 business goal(s) ?
Are you likely or unlikely to achieve your 2011 personal goal(s)?
If you answered unlikely to either of these questions, the follow up questions to help you think things through are:
What is causing you to fall short of achieving your goal(s)?
What are you going to do about it?
My leadership tip for you is to be sure that you are set with realistic business and personal goals for the second half of the year … and that you organize your energies around achieving them.
It’s easy to say but hard to do. So here is a collection of 13 other quotes to help inspire you.
Enjoy your leadership journey.
