The Power of Goal Setting

August 2, 2011

I spent two years working at Nike before moving back to Bozeman.  I had the rare opportunity to meet an amazing man, named Howard White. Howard, or “H” as they refer to him, is the Vice President of Brand Jordan, but more importantly, an amazing motivational speaker and friend. He taught me, and many others the importance of goal setting. Here were his words of advice:

1.)  Visualize your goal– in your personal life, work, etc.

2.)  Write it down (put it somewhere where you can easily reference it)

3.)  Sacrifice (think about what you have to give up in order to achieve it…this is where many people fail)

4.)  Do the work (embrace the challenges along the way)

5.)  Always know (“there will be thorns in the briar patch”)

Here is a clip from one of his speeches about putting in the work to achieve your goals.

If you need any help with goal setting, I would love to assist you. As H says, “See the invisible, do the impossible.” YOU HAVE IT IN YOU!
