Setting S.M.A.R.T. goals works! Many people want to achieve goals and as an executive life coach I work alongside them. But success is never an accident. It starts with a goal and it’s only by studying the success of others that this pattern emerged and was crafted. As a homebuilder our company success was based on setting and achieving goals. This strategy worked as the net profitability increased 10 fold.
We thrive when we set and achieve goals. God gave us these desires in the first place and He wants us to take action to achieve His purposes.
Relationship is the stuff that life is truly made of. Not the artificial relationships in schools or social and business environments where forced inclusion is expected. Rather, chosen and nurtured relationships.
How do true friendships and spheres of influence form?
Moving often as a child I found myself accepting the notion that friends are due to proximity. Geography not genuine concern defined my friendships.
We know friends are important because they impact and establish the quality and direction of our lives. Without friends we have no influence because no one’s listening. Leadership is influence.
