Goals and Goal Setting
The Foundation and Support for
Goal Achievement
The four tasks—1: Identify Opportunities, 2: Write Goal Statements, 3: Develop
Goals, and 4: Formulate Action Plans—are only the foundation for goal achieve-
ment. They lay the groundwork by setting the stage for success.
Goals are achieved only through actions and activities. Good planning can tell
you how and where to go—but it won’t help you succeed unless you put the plan
into action.
There are three action elements necessary to ensure goal achievement:
1. Implement the plan—the programs, procedures, policies, etc.
2. Monitor progress—made at specific intervals, check on actions taken and
results achieved
3. Revise objectives—as necessary, raise objectives and tactics to overcome
