|To be specific, you have listed hopes, not goals. It is obviously a good sign that you have positive dreams about the future, but goals are much more than that.|
For a goal to be more than a dream, it needs to be specific, measurable, prioritized, and backed up by an action plan to get there. For example, if you want to cross train your employees, your goal would include how many employees will be cross trained, what the training will cover, when the training will be completed, and how the results of the training will be measured and evaluated.
If you want to make some improvements in your life, whether on the job or off, it is very important to have real goals. In fact, studies over the years have consistently found that goals can have a strong motivational impact. Having challenging yet attainable goals can be truly energizing.
At this point, one of your near-term goals should be to develop some real goals for yourself.
