We suck at setting goals

Posted on January 07, 2013
There's a good chance you made a New Year's resolution this year, and there's also a pretty good chance you've already broken it. It's no secret that setting goals for yourself is hard, and the hard truth is that many people who make goals never achieve them. Much worse than not achieving your goals, however, is failing to set any for yourself in the first place. No matter how big or how small your intended goal is, just setting one for yourself is important. Whether you intend to ace a class, score an internship, or simply become a better note-taker, setting your goal and being aware of it is much better than not knowing what you need to work on, or not caring. For people who set and achieve goals successfully, there are some important habits that make all the difference. For example, people who take the time to write their goals down are much more likely to actually achieve them. The following infographic takes a look at the state of goal setting—how many people set goals, how many people actually reach them, and what those goals might be. Whether you've already broken your New Year's resolution or you've never set a clear mission for yourself before, make it your first goal to take a look at today's infographic.
