Are you setting goals that are relevant to you? Really, truly, important? Establishing relevant goals increases the likelihood that you will continue to press on toward the finish line even when challenges and obstacles arise.
Set goals that are meaningful to you. Your goals should be tied to your vision and long term plans. Focus on your own agenda, not someone else's. Too often, people set goals in an attempt to keep up with the Joneses. Don't set your goals based on someone else's race--run your own!
