SETTING GOALS AND ACHIEVING GOALS – COMMON MISTAKES MADE

You think goals are something you only do once a year – at New Year.

You set New Year’s goals but you don’t achieve them. Without realising it you build up the belief that you are not good at achieving goals.

You don’t spend enough time taking stock of how your life currently is so that you can be clear on what you would prefer instead.

You don’t take enough time to think about what it is you really, really want.

You have too many goals.

You don’t put your goals into writing.

You don’t think through the specific metrics of your goal – i.e. your goal is too general.

Your goal is far too big for you to achieve. You have not broken it down into smaller more manageable goals.

The goal is outside your control and influence – you could never make it happen on your own.

Your goal is a ‘should’ goal and not a ‘want’ goal.

You don’t know ‘why’ you want your goal.

You don’t spend enough time working out the possible downsides to achieving your goal.

You don’t have a plan, an effective course of action.

You don’t take enough action.

You don’t think through, or find, the resources that you need to achieve your goal.

You don’t go where you need to go, contact who you need to contact, get what you need to get etc to achieve your goals.

You don’t develop the skills you need.to achieve your goals.

You don’t believe:
“ This is possible!”

“ I want to do this!

“ I can do this!”

– the three core beliefs behind setting goals and achieving them.


You have a clash of values. For example, security is more important to you than risk, and yet you set a goal that requires high risk.

You are just not the kind of person to achieve the kind of goal you set.
