goals, targets, Michelangelo

How are your business goals coming along?

As you consider your answer to that question, I’d like you to think about the following. It’s from the genius of Michelangelo.

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.’

– Michelangelo.

Puny goals fail to inspire us. And as Michelangelo said, even if we achieve them, we don’t really achieve anything meaningful.

Here’s a far better approach.

  • Set goals that excite you.
  • Set goals that cause you to grow.
  • Set goals that are worthy of you.
  • Set goals that will lead to a meaningful improvement in your quality of life.
  • Set goals that motivate you.
  • Set goals that motivate the people around you.

That’s the kind of goal setting, which fuels you with the passion, energy, direction and inspiration you need. That’s the kind of goal setting, which can lead to meaningful results. That’s the kind of goal setting, which is used by the most effective business people.

And that’s because it works.

Thanks for the inspiration and motivation, Michelangelo.
