Last year I wrote about the hedghog principle and setting big, hairy, audacious goals (BHAGs) to motivate us to take on and accomplish great things. I have been thinking a lot about goal setting and BHAGs this last year as well as the ways to succeed with them. Since this is a time of year that many of us set goals, I thought it would be good to share with you some tips for applying BHAGs to our goals and use those BHAGs to motivate us to achieve great things.
I am a big believer in goal setting in general and the use of BHAGs in particular. I used BHAGs to qualify and run the Boston Marathon, to write my book and get it published, and to pursue becoming a world class professional speaker.
My tips for applying BHAGs to your goals are in the January 2008 edition of the Monthly EQ Newsletter for Project Managers. Download the PDF file of the Monthly Newsletter Here. You can also sign up to get your own copy of the EQ Monthly Newsletter on my corporate website.
I would love to hear about your reactions to the tips, the BHAGs you set for yourself, and your success stories throughout this year.
