Better Goals Yield Better PerformanceFor a variety of reasons, people respond very strongly to goals. Whether your goals are set for you, or you set them yourself, the simple fact of having a fixed point of reference against which to measure your performance creates a whole new and improved environment in which to perform.

But not all goals are created equal. Goals can be motivating or frustrating, energizing or draining, generate enthusiasm or lethargy.

Much depends on the process by which the goal is set, and how the goal relates to your interests and capabilities.

Choose Your Goals Wisely. Ever notice what motivates greyhounds to race at the dog track? It’s a mechanical rabbit that moves just fast enough to stay out of reach. The dogs are motivated to run their fastest, but they can never catch the rabbit. That seems to work for dogs, but people who never “catch the rabbit” quickly lose interest, energy, and motivation to succeed.

So whether you’re setting your own goals or looking at goals someone else sets for you, think before you run. If the goal is set too high to be attainable, keep your expectations low enough so you won’t be disappointed when you fall short. Goals that are too demanding eventually force you into frustration, resentment, and disappointment.

On the other hand, goals that are too easy to reach let you get lazy and contemptuous of success. The best goals require your best efforts, but no more than that.

istock_000006746099xsmall1Lots of countries have afternoon rest periods of some kind or another for their employees, but in the U.S., napping is still seen as something for lazy people or small children. We’re too tough for that, too motivated. Why, you couldn’t pay us to sleep on the job… but you should.

Philips Consumer Lifestyle recently completed a study that show that poor sleep habits are likely affecting your business’s bottom line. Among the findings:
  • 85 percent of office workers admit they’d be more productive if they slept more.
  • 56 percent say they don’t consistently get a good night’s sleep.
  • 37 percent of employees aren’t ready to get up when the alarm goes off.
  • 23 percent of employees confess to taking naps at work.
How can you tell is your staff is sleep-deprived? Signs include:
