Goal-Setting in the 21st Century

I am working with many clients these days on goal-setting. That, by itself, is not a big switch. We still focus on SMART Goals.  We focus on setting process goals that are within one’s control.

The switch is that we’re using a really cool tool called “Goalscape.”  You can see it pictured below.  With Goalscape, we’re able to prioritize how important a goal is, divide it into subgoals, and quantify progress with those subgoals (by shading in that piece of the pie).  You can use a free account (I suggest using it to collaborate with me!), or you can purchase a subscription for yourself.  I get a small cut when people obtain the software through me, so I encourage you to use my link!
