Set and Achieve High Goals in 2009

This will be my last post on outstanding performance this year.  Outstanding performance is one of the keys to success that I discuss in Straight Talk for Success.  If you want to become an outstanding performer, you need to do three things: 1) become a lifelong learner; 2) set and achieve high goals; and 3) manage your time, life and stress well.

Allyson Spellman is a friend of mine and an expert on goal setting.  She is known as “The Breakthrough Muse.”   Allyson is a life coach and an expert on breakthroughs to success that motivate and inspire individuals worldwide.

1. Determine your goals.
2. Make a commitment.
3. Create a plan of action.
4. Set deadlines.
5. Be prepared for roadblocks.
