Clarity of goals and objectives are very essential to achieving success in life and business either as an employee or employer. It is very imperative in building career. Having no clarity of purpose makes you a wanderer in the jungle of life as energy is wasted pursuing wrong direction. Nothing kills career and motivation faster than lack of clarity. An individual with money without clarity will definitely end up without fulfillment, whereas, to some other without money, they would build a successful career for years because they would be focus and spend the limited resources on specific goal.
Clarity can never be achieved without having a clear goal, if clarity is so important and goal setting is part of clarity, how come people do not set definite goal that enhances clarity? Setting goal to many people is not really a difficult thing to do, the challenge is knowing who they really are, their environment and being able to discipline their thought to know and focus on what they truly need irrespective of the price to pay for it.
Teddy Roosevelt once said, “In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” The question is, how can you make the right decision when you don’t know yourself? How can you discipline yourself to do the right thing, when you are not right with your emotions?
Clarity is only possible when you are fully in charge of your emotions. Emotional intelligence gives you the capacity to rightly set goal and being cleared with your direction irrespective of the distractions from people around-family, colleague, event and situations. Goal setting is not really about planning, being specific in your planning, giving yourself timeline but more of having right “feeling” about what you are planning.
According to a research those who feel right about actions achieve far better than those who feels wrong despite having right plan in place. How you feel affects your decision making, focus, relationship and action.
The question is do you have clarity?
