GOAL SETTING FOR 2012 It’s time to write and read your new goals for 2012. If you have not yet written down specific goals, commit today to get them written BEFORE 1.1.12. Your goals should include any and all areas that are most important to you. Examples: Career, Financial, Personal, Health, Spiritual, Philanthropic, Education, etc. Write down your ten non-negotiable goals and follow them with 4 – 5 Action Items and Completion Dates. If you don’t write them down, or include dated Action Items – there is a chance they will only have the longevity of some New Year’s Resolutions. Lastly, post them where you can read them as you are conducting your job search efforts. These goals remind you WHY it is important for you to focus on your Job Search to turn the goals you’ve set into your reality in 2012.
