How could someone have goals that aren't what they say they are?
Lots of ways, such as:
- their boss assigned the goals but the team member doesn't commit
- they are confused about what results they really want
- they don't realize how under-whelming the goal is and feel uninspired
- the goals have expired and it's really time to set new ones
Lots of reasons.
We need to check in on our goals frequently. We even need to change them sometimes. Goals are important -- isn't it worth getting them right?
When our goals are not what we say they are we aren't likely to get what we want.
