Running and Leadership – Goals

Setting Goals is the Key to Success

2nd of 5


Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal.  – Vince Lombardi


What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.  – Zig Ziglar


I lead teams.

I lead meetings.

I teach leaders to lead.

I can see the end result, because I have defined it clearly.

I set a goal to be in shape. I have expressed the goal in terms of running a certain distance in a certain amount of time. I can’t accomplish that goal without the following:

  1. The belief that I will succeed…
  2. A description of what it looks like when I have succeeded…
  3. A long-term vision…
  4. Short-term goals…
  5. A weekly schedule…
  6. A daily plan of action…

That works for my work, as well as for my running.

What about your work?

What about your life?

Goals are SMART!
