A Fresh Look At Goal Setting - Part 2
In the last article, I discussed the advantages of goal setting and suggested a three-tiered approach. Tier One is the "doing" level of goal setting and deals with the "what" of our goals. This is the level we are most familiar with and operate in most of our lives.
Level Two involves developing specific competencies. The third level of goal setting is a process of shifting our Way of Being. At this level, attention shifts from learning a new skill and becoming competent to actually developing specific personal qualities that will support positive and enduring change. At levels one and two, we deal with our relationship or interaction with a set of objectives. At level three, we deal with the relationship we have with ourselves, intentionally looking beyond the desired outcome to include a more holistic perspective of what we want to achieve.
