Why Most Goals Setting Does Not Work

You may have come across a process called “Goals Setting”, which involves the development of an action plan designed to motivate and guide a person or group toward a goal.   Today goal setting is a major tool of the personal-development and entrepreneurial space, used by many life and business coaches. Despite the obvious traction, I am here to tell you that, “Most Goals Setting Does Not Work”. Specifically, it is not that the process itself does not work.

I had a call just now from a dear friend asking me how do I deal with people who takes what I say too personally, as a lot of the things I say tends to be the truth and the truth hurts.

Not because I want to, but it generally just falls into my responsibility to do so. But I love it. I also …
