Pa Joof, renowned business strategist and speaker, talks about the importance of goal setting and the individual ways each person approaches the achievement of his or her goals.
LONDON, UK — November 21, 2016 — Executive coach, renowned business strategist and speaker, Pa Joof posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Go-Getters are Typically Also Goal-Getters.” Mr. Joof is encouraging even to those who may have switched goals mid-stream.
Joof writes, “As we approach the end of 2016, I wonder how many of you have achieved the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of this year.” He continues asking, “Did you stick with your goals, change your mind about them, take baby steps toward them, or did you leap into action, build momentum and surpass your wildest expectations?” “Any of those scenarios,” says Joof, “are indications that you’re a natural go-getter.”
According to Joof, “Each of us approaches our goals differently. Even if you changed your mind about a particular goal, as long as you didn’t just give up because it got to be too challenging, it’s ok.” He adds, “Sometimes, we dive into moving toward a goal and find out that it isn’t really right for us. It’s like changing your major in university. After a year or two, once you have a deeper understanding of the field of study you thought you were interested in and find out that it doesn’t ignite your passion, you can switch.”
“Congratulate yourself,” says Joof, “if you are still working toward your goal. When you start with baby steps, depending on the magnitude of what it is you’ve set out to do, you can build confidence by doing small things. Instead of thinking about how you can quickly achieve your goal, think about the smallest thing you can do that will move you in the direction of your goal. Then do the next smallest thing. This is how you build momentum and before you know it, you’ll be moving faster, taking bigger steps.”
