Proper Goal Setting to Reach Success

“When you set goals, it is important to consider all the elements of a goal. This is a key step for Employee 5.0. I recommend that you use the word -SCAMPS- to remember the required elements to succeed:

  • S – Specific/Strategy: your goal needs to be specific for you to visualize successfully reaching your goal. Once you visualize it, you need to create a strategy to attain your goal.
  • C – Challenging: Challenging goals spur you to action. You are excited to work on them. Your brain loves a challenge!
  • A – Attainable: While they need to be challenging, you must also believe that you can successfully attain goals. Otherwise, you will not work to succeed because your brain says, “You know you can’t do this!”
  • M – Measurable: The steps to completing a goal must be measurable. It is important to know every day the steps that you need to take toward achieving your goal. If the goal is not measurable, how will you determine your required hourly/daily tasks?
  • P – Public: You need to let people who support you know that you set the goal. They will ask for progress reports. This step provides accountability. Do not bother telling people you know will throw cold water on your goals. How would that help you? Talk with positive people.
  • S – Set End Date: Once you have created a goal, it is important to set your completion date. This step, tied to the measurable steps, enables you to determine what actions you need to take daily to achieve your goal. This second S is the bungee cord that ties all the steps together with the first S.

  3. You will uncover positions when they are *true opportunities* – before they hit the online boards (if they ever do).
