Accidental Entrepreneur: How To Set Goals for Success In Life

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my 39th weekly article as this week is called “ How to set Goals for Success In Life.”

In this article I go over the different types of goals that are needed to achieve both personal success along with broader company success. Setting goals intentionally along with a systematic approach to tracking progress/course correcting is critical to ultimately achieving those goals.

“உள்ளுவ தெல்லாம் உயர்வுள்ளல் மற்றது

தள்ளினுந் தள்ளாமை நீர்த்து”. — திருக்குறள் (596)

“Think lofty thoughts/goals always; even if it fails to

materialize, it’s still as good as having materialized”.

— Thirukkural (596)

Once a person acquires knowledge and ability to make decisions based on data, the next step for success is setting goals. In this article I try to describe various levels of goals a person can set and monitor for success. This is an important aspect of achieving the ultimate results. At the corporate level, setting these goals are considered a part of the broader Company Vision. Based on the company visions, each department will set their own goals and each project would set their goals. Combinations of personal goals and company goals, drive the success of each person, community and country.

Goal setting is a habit which needs to be set intentionally and followed up by systematically exercising to reach the goal. Below are my way of setting goals and achieving end results:

I hope that my explanation of goals and the purpose for setting those goals by navigating within the goal of the company is clear from this article. For entrepreneurs and managers, a key part of their job is to set clear goals, connect the people with purpose and provide an environment to thrive to meet the goals. This simple but thoughtful act is the one that sets apart a successful team and company and unsuccessful people. Learn to set the proper customer driven goals and then work with the team members to achieve it. If this is done with intention and cooperation, success is inevitable.
