Is the goal clearly written, with no ambivalence? Is it clear who needs to accomplish the goal, and any support they might expect? Certain apps really have the potential to make themselves indispensable and Clear is one of them. As its name would suggest, Clear is a simple yet elegant to-do list app. Believe it or not we use a simple spreadsheet with Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) -but it does the trick. Every employee in the company is expected to list four quarterly goals (three professional, one personal) and an action they’ll take to achieve those goals. If you’re struggling to stay on track or your results are constantly falling short of your expectations, using one or more of these tools can help you create a better plan of attack and stick to it. Now is the time to think through what you want your professional life to look like a year from now and set out a roadmap to make that a reality. The theory states that an attainable goal may cause goal-setters to identify previously overlooked opportunities to bring themselves closer to the achievement of their goals. Why did we create this goal setting guide.
