Know what you want and know what other want

Goal Setting Potential Relationship

What do you want, and what do others want?
You need to know exactly what you want and exactly what others want. The overlap is your opportunity to do business.

The difference between a wish and a goal

Goals are not wishes
Wishes are mere flights of fancy
Goals are specific, objectively defined, numerical, achievable, realistic and optimistic.

How to set and agree on specific goals.

  • Be specific
  • Define your goal numerically
  • Define all your key terms
  • Identify the skills knowledge needed
  • Identify the material resources needed
  • Identify the time needed
  • Ensure the deadline is reasonable and agreed

State your goals in the positive sense.

Don’t state goals in the negative sense.

A negative goal is leaves unstated what you will do, and merely states what you won’t do.

If you say, “I won’t repeat the mistakes of the past”. Then we still do not know what you are going to do. You need to state goals in the affirmative. Example, “By the end of the decade, we will put an American on the moon and return him safely”.
Avoid negative commands: Give only positive commands

Make sure that last thing they hear from you is what you DO want.
Always make the last thing they hear, before they leave, a statement about what you DO want.

I found the course content incredibly interesting and very informative. Everything seemed very common sense based, but not something you immediately think about until it's in front of you. I found most benefit from the psychology of language in terms of conflict and conversation. Chris was a fantastic presenter. Incredibly engaging and made sure everything was clearly understood. It was very easy to follow with Chris' explanations
