About this title


Dr. Wicker has developed a unique approach to goal setting that is applicable for everyone. Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about changing or developing your future. This book includes real-life examples and applicable work exercises to utilize when setting goals. The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. This book also uncovers 5 important reasons why people need to establish goals:1. Goals guide and direct behavior.2. Goals provide challenges.3. Goals justify the performance.4. Goals define the basis for strategy. 5. Goals serve an organizing function. Finally, the goal setting book can be summarized by utilizing the (C+G=S) philosophy. (Confidence + Goals = Success) The C + G = S philosophy tells us that goals are defined as a desired pattern or action that lead to specific successful results.C + G = S also tells us that goals need to be planned. Goals cannot begin by themselves, which is how the C + G = S philosophy started. Research has determined that confidence and planning were key factors in goal-setting techniques. The word confidence, as defined by Webster's Dictionary, is the belief in one's own ability. Success is defined as a favorable result-the gaining of wealth, fame, and accomplishments. The definitions listed in Webster's Dictionary of each key word helped develop the acronym: C + G = S
