Often the journey to reaching a goal is more important than attaining the goal itself.
We set goals; we set the bar high, so that we can achieve something. We create expectations so that we can attain success. Without a vision, without a bar, we can’t maintain focus and thus achieve results.
While we strive to meet the goal, the journey itself is often more important than the destination. The process of learning . . . of overcoming failures and pushing ourselves to do more . . . creates the culture for even more success. When we set goals, when we set the bar high and push ourselves, it is the journey that earns dividends for the future. We invest in the process, commit to the team, demand excellence, and thus embrace our growth mindset.
Don’t see a goal as a finish line but rather a marker on a greater path . . . a path towards growth, development, and improvement.
