As seen in PBA News: 4 Ps of Goal Setting


Precision, Passion, Persistance = Perfection


by Sherri Jessee
Success can be achieved when you take the time to organize your desires for the future and set goals toward achieving those desires.
PRECISION
Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable.
List the specific things you want to achieve. Do you want more clients? Would you like to have your work published? Would you like to win a NAHA? A precise goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. List your goals and commit to achieving them. Putting something in writing about your goals is the first step toward making them happen. By writing down your goals and setting a time line, events are set into motion that may not have happened otherwise. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable—not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. As you reach your goals, build upon them and set new goals that are even higher.
PASSION
By achieving one success at a time, you will have an incredible journey.
Think about those things about which you are truly passionate. What would you really love to be doing? Where would you really love to be? Who would you really love to be working with? What makes your heart race when you think about it? Set small goals that you can easily obtain. These are stepping stones that lead to the bigger goals that you will eventually set—the really big ones that give you butterflies in your stomach when thinking about them. By achieving one success at a time, you will have an incredible journey. Establish a way of measuring your progress toward reaching each goal you set. When you are able to complete goals on your list, you will stay on track and experience the excitement of achievement. This will encourage you to continue the efforts required to reach your goals and create new ones.
PERSISTENCE
True success will eventually come to those willing to work hard enough and long enough.
It was Thomas Jefferson who said, “I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.” True success will eventually come to those willing to work hard enough and long enough to achieve their goals. You must be persistent and set your “GPS” to your final destination. Then have the courage to head out on your journey. Don’t worry if you have to occasionally “re-calculate your route.” With persistence, you WILL get there.
