Goal getting - Not goal setting

With Tom O'Neil

Goal getting - Not goal setting...

Key Points
- Using my COMPASS Goal Achievement Programme©, helping viewers to put in place clear tangible goals over the short, medium and long term 
- Studies say less than 5% of people have written goals and people as a rule do not goal set.  
- It is very important to have a clear idea of what both your short and long-term goals are (both personal and career). 
- If you clearly understand your long-term goals, wise short-term choices and decisions will be easier to make.

COMPASS Goal Achievement Programme©
