Goals are challenging when they make you excited and nervous at the same time. As we approach the time of year where we stop for a moment and plan for 2017, I think it is prudent we talk about the value of goal setting, which gives us something to shoot for and work towards. If there is not a goal set for you personally or your company, how do you know where you are going or what to do next? I recently read a quote that said, “If you do not go after what you want, you will never have it. If you do not ask, the answer will always be ‘No,’ and if you do not step forward you will always be in the same place.”
A solid goal defines what we want. It should be challenging but realistic, and a goal you can stick with for a period of time. Analysis of that goal helps us plan our next actions and take steps to achieve the success we want. If you need help with goal setting or would like someone from First National to sit down with you to help you through the goal setting process for your company, please let us know. Our staff is fully equipped to help you ask the right questions and move toward your goals.
