Hey Leaders!!! What’s Your Take on ‘If there’s a will, there’s a way?’
Where there’s a will there’s a way. When you hear that familiar saying, what thoughts pop up? In particular, what for you, as a leader, surfaces in terms of setting and succeeding with goals?
For a lot of us, when we recall that bit ‘o wisdom, we have flashbacks of our parents, grandparents, coaches or teachers responding with that saying whenever we told them about our dreams, wishes and wants.
But time and experience have taught us this: Goal achievement requires much more than just shear willpower. What’s more, along with even the best-intentioned desires to succeed comes a dose of skepticism. Skepticism around whether we’ve set the right goals in the first place. Or whether we have the right resources to execute effectively. Or what external and internal factors might potentially derail our success. Or whether all our planning and goal setting have been done in vain.
Particularly around the New Year, when everyone feels inspired to make resolutions and businesses are kicking off ambitious, newly approved annual plans, the skepticism can feel and be real. But you don’t have to give in to it. You don’t have to give it power. You have a choice in the matter. And if you choose to really make this year the one in which you make goal-setting the priority, you can succeed.
But it takes the right approach, method, or “system.” Whether you’re a current or veteran MAP client, you know the power of the right system. The right system helps you focus on what’s vital, setting goals, strategies and activities around what matters, then it drives results through execution and accountability.
