    When an employee efficiency add more work without providing more opportunity for growth,it will be undesirable.Efficiency which is sometimes burdened with unattainable target is also undesirable.Most employees who are stuck on the corporate ladder without an opportunity for growth always expect adding routine and meaningless tasks to their role.Adding routine tasks to smart employees will regress them to mediocrity,hinder their creativity and make the lose sight of their org goals.We have encountered this scenario in most high tech and R&D oriented companies where their researchers and scientists have less opportunity for managerial training and can't climb up the corporate ladder.Their role,then,should be defined on a particular ladder -say a technical ladder to treat them as they ought to be treated.

    This is a fragment of a story I wrote: "Main and Garcia."

    This was a tough life that I was living, but I was enjoying it. It seemed colorful to me. It depends on what your priorities are I suppose. The standard trappings of success didn’t appeal to me, not really, not enough that I would struggle through four years of college to get to it. Life’s too short. I didn’t expect to get this far as it is.

    Circumstance meets opportunity; that was my life. Not so bad really. Nobody is going to care what my title was or how much money I made or what kind of house I owned or what I drove even two years after I'm dead.
    Take my word for it -- I worked in two different cemeteries, one for four years to the day; and I never saw a headstone that mentioned anything about worldly attainments on it. It's not SUPPOSED to matter. All this worldly struggle.
    Thanks for your concisely written essay, Donna-Luisa. Don't mind me. I got my own take on life which I see that you share. Save for that I never was a winner.

    Folks, I'm sharing from a response I made to @Ali Anani on his post. "In my humble opinion setting personal goals and professional goals have parallels and what works in one can work in the other. The major difference is professional goals affect a broad group of people and stakeholders because the existence of the organization depends on it, whereas personal goals affect the person making and living the goals. Goal setting for both needs flexibility and should be created based on objectives and expectations. Maybe its a bit radical way to think but I don't see goals as anything other than a destination with a GPS or map advising where to go. Anywhere along the journey I can make the choice to change the course. The problem with goal setting both professionally and personally is failing to understand what drives the goals being set, and not being prepared to adapt to changing times or changing destination. "
    I've never been rigid with goal setting though I can be quite focused once its something I'm passionate about! I agree that on a personal level one can toss the planning manual out the door :-) and do whatever works for you. Ultimately whatever one decides its still a #lifegoal to make yourself happy and comfortable in your own skin!

    I commend you on your goals @Donna-Luisa Eversley! Life can sure throw some curve balls but it seems you have managed to keep plugging away. I'm happy you've met your goals and have more you are striving for. For some reason if I set goals I get anxious so I just take 'most' things one day at a time. I'm a fairly spontaneous person, many times out of need. I'm not saying I've never had goals but I've realized they cause me extra stress. You are so positive, keep it coming, love it!

    My latest thought was to go back to what always appealed to me. That one thing you've always wanted to do above all else while striving to be a better person than the day before. That is your special talent meant to be shared. It's as if life tells you "You've worked so hard this long, why stop now."

    That is what we should put our thoughts and energy towards. It means something different to each and every one of us and that is what makes us all unique.

    I'm certain you are already on this path and I wish you an exciting and joyful journey! Keep me posted 😊

    Thanks for the tag, DLE and for the stimulating post. Like the major portion of the population, formal personal goals have not historically been a large part of my life, particularly when I was bringing up a young family and working my butt off to meet the needs of various company goals prepared by others. It's only in the latter part of my life, mostly post 50 years old, that I have had the opportunity and foresight, along with the financial security, to create and achieve my own goals, most of which have been photography and travel related. I continue to work part time, even although I am well past retirement age (whatever that is) because I now have my own goals to achieve, improving management systems and in the process, hopefully improving managers. It's such a pity that so few individuals are aware of the benefits of formalising goals as part of life's planning. After all, "when we fail to plan, we plan to fail" and if we don't set ourselves up with goal posts, then how can we experience the exhilaration of shooting between them?

    Thank you, DL, for this excellent buzz, for which I can closely relate to as a 40-something. First, I agree with you that "age is just a number." I say that a lot and remind folks of the saying, "It's not the number of years in your life, but the life in those years."
    Second, I commend you on achieving so many of your life's goals, which is admirable. Third, in contemplating future goals I would remind everybody of the time-less words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (whose birthday we celebrated last week in the USA):
    "Life most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?"
    This is applicable both online (per social media) and offline (through direct personal interactions). It's an important question we should all ask ourselves.
    Another great MLK quote to keep in mind when setting and embarking on new life goals: "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."
    I encourage bees to read and share my recent blog post about MLK (if you haven't already done do): https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/mlk-day-key-lessons-for-millennials-gen-z (I appreciate your gracious share/tweets, DL!)

    Should goals be announced?
    Should goals be announced?The topic of this buzz is challenging to me and I needed to pool my courage to write this buzz. The buzz goes against prevailing wisdom in that it promotes the idea of keeping goals hidden from employees and customers. So, why have SMART goals?...

    23/01/2017 #44 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA
    #43 So true, Ali. Announced company goals, allow employees to feel an 'equal' member of the company. And definitely make employees feel as if these are their goals, too. And, as you say "own them".

    hank you dear @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA and in particular for your ingredients of success "Know, Like and Trust factors". I tried to highlight when the internal goals mad be hidden for a good cause. Te way you described how announced goals are developed in successful companies make the employees feel they own the goals. So, if goals are declared they should be owned by employees for them to be successful. I thank you Jean for your remarkable feedback.
    Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA
    23/01/2017 #42 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA
    Thank you, Ali, for this most interesting article. Regarding sharing company goals - while many companies do like to keep goals private, unwilling to share them with employees for their own unique reasons, not to mention fear those goals will be discovered by the competition, sharing is better from a variety of standpoints. Companies I've worked for, as well as top brands like Macys, Starbucks, Oracle, regularly share goals. Department heads meet weekly with employees to discuss those goals and query them regarding actions that department, or each employee, can take to help meet those goals; at the next meeting they share how they reached those goals; often refining them and putting them to use daily. This helps expand team effort, provides reachable goals, and further encourages employees to produce a better quality of work, for example. On the other hand, when you share your company's goals with your customer base, as do many fast food companies, and brands like Ford and GM do, you are continuing to develop the all-important Know, Like and Trust factors. Thank you once again Ali, for a share which encourages us to question accepted norms as gospel.

I left a gorgeous job for the same reason.
    I need not remind the reader that plants attract pollinators by providing them with a sweet stuff. As for CEOs who try to keep and attract talents by using repelling approaches and still hope to keep and attract talents is an example of lousy management. Bees go for flowers and not for garbage orgainizations.

    #36 Nobody will know better about personal branding than creative marketers who know how to position themselves in the mind of the employers.The issue here is different.Personalities that leads to conflict or polarization rather than building common interests is a failure.Hidden goals that are always associated with motivation or perception is something else.In my career 30+ years in qualitative research I tended to uncover people latent demand and articulate consumers perceptions and behavior that are already exist,but are not either aware of or able to articulate.
    As a facilitator concerned with org structures and the fit and balance between peoples core skills and core interests and the org cultures and processes,I tended to listen to many talents who quit their organizations "for personal reasons?"by digging down in their minds to find out the hidden reasons behind their decisions. I often was struck with answers more reflective to the culture of innovation,motivation and compensations.
    In another situation I was asked by an electronic company to examine why many of its most talented engineers were leaving for their competitive companies.Although most of the resignations were addressed by "for personal reasons",in reality I discovered that they had left the company not only because of the rewards,but also the company's rigid rules and the emergence of circles of political influence around the CEO.

    We already embed things , Hopefully the embedded are aligned for the good companies and the alignment is uniform with seamless blend between vision, objectives, output and consumer perspective for the great ones.

    Even if it is not seamless, collective effort and resources of organisations can do the damage control effectively by embedding the solution, recover unapologetically.

    As an individual who is contemplating Personal Brand, the embedding needs more thought, credibility is on the line. It is very easy as compared to organisations but can easily blindside a person.

    I believe the equalizer in the male female realm is the brain. I also believe that data sets once created and correlated tend to destroy what they look at. Not just any female or male is the causation, but yet Jim and Mary in combination were successful. If we cant describe the brain of Jim and Mary then we cant really know causation. The generalization of gender is what causes us to assemble things in a certain way hoping something will repeat itself, when in reality two brains came together that complimented each other.

    Data sets tend to establish certain generic guidelines of success. Before long books come out in what a road to success looks like. Folks follow patterns of behavior and expect the same result. Major missing ingredients are left out because the data sets cant reflect those pieces. Now we have schools and students who bend into the causation factors and the data sets of the future are now polluted, they don't work anymore.

    Elaborate technical analysis in the stock market is a prime example. Once someone sees a pattern and charts it, everyone has it. Now it becomes a self fulfilling pattern as folks know that others are watching the same trends with the same data set.

    I don't know how this would work but being able to collect data on the brains of Jim and Mary would be more telling than generalizations. I can only imagine an anthropologist three hundred light years away watching America and what they would generalize from our observed behaviors.
