As we wind down with the end of the year approaching fast — where has the year gone? — it is appropriate, indeed necessary, that we review our performance over the last twelve months and decide what our goals are for 2015.
My goals are not yet set. There are too many things to be considered in light of what has happened this year before I can make a sensible goal for next. The only goal I can set at the moment is that by the middle of January I have to have my 2015 goals settled.
I suspect that I am not alone in my quandary and that many of you will be joining me in using this holiday season to do some serious thinking.
I wish you well and remind you that whatever goal you set, it needs to be realistic and measurable. And actual performance needs to be checked against the goal regularly so that adjustments can be made if necessary.
