How to Set Goals & Actually Reach Them

The idea behind the SELF Journal was to quit the yearly planning cycle and instead focus on one goal over 13 weeks.

In the 1960’s, psychologists Edwin Locke and Gary Latham discovered that goal setting is one of the easiest ways to increase motivation and enhance performance, they found that setting goals increased performance and productivity up to 25 percent. On an average 8 hour work day this is like getting an extra 2 hours of work accomplished solely by having a goal based on the activity.
