THE FIVE  CíS  OF GOAL SETTING

 

It is important to keep in mind the five Cís of life goal setting.  They are:

 

CHANGE

  

        You need to be willing to make changes, both in your operation and within yourself to ultimately make your work satisfying and fulfilling.  Dolores Hope, wife of comedian Bob Hope, advises, ďyour life is going to be as interesting as you make it.  Keep active.  Keep working.  Keep trying.   And donít be afraid of change.Ē

 

CREATIVITY

 

        Keep in mind that thereís always another way of looking at things.  Approach your work changes from different angles.  Visualize new ideas and use the creative power necessary to implement your vision of the way things can be.

 

 

COMMUNICATION

 

        Asking for assistance from others gathers information that can help you and verbalize what you want or need clearly and assertively. 

 

 

CONFIDENCE

 

         Believe in yourself.  You CAN make this work.

 

 

COMMITMENT

  

       Stick with your goals.  See them through then revise them or change them as necessary.  Tough times donít last but tough people do.  We (the agriculture community) are the toughest people I know.
