Goals and goal setting. Much has been written about this topic; from importance to how to write the tasks and action items. Biagio ‘Bill’ Sciacca is the author of Goals Book: Embracing Personal Responsibility in an Age of Entitlement. Biagio not only does consulting, he has taught at the university level since 1982, and, recently, took a full-time academic post at Penn State University, where he lectures in Micro and Macro Economics, Marketing, Leadership, Strategic Management and Interpersonal Skills in Business. His first attempt at the book resulted in a lot of blank pages, where the reader was supposed to fill in their goals. He realized that this might not be helpful and takes a different approach to goal setting and encourages us to think about habit formation.
In this episode, Bill discusses 1. His thoughts on goals and persistent goal setting. 2. Attributes of high-octane leaders.
Ask yourself: Do you set time aside to plan goals?
