    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?...

    #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.

    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.

    #39 I shall not dispute what you wrote "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". 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.

    after months and years they always come back with a plea for help. You can judge instantly whether they are willing to do it right or just coming to you for free/cheap help and return to bad practices.

    AS always, making people aware and guiding them to do it right. Thank you.

    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.

    It's the struggles in life that reveal the strength was there all along only waiting to be needed.

    Growth and great things await the other side of fear once you say "Fuck it, I'm doing it anyway."

    Old pains are recycled. There happens to be a tendency in most people to repeat a pattern over and over again, from an early childhood experience, or a relationship with our mother/father. Sometimes it maybe the first person we had a relationship with, or even a relationship with a kid on the bus that picked on and now your whole life you’ve built relationships based on those experiences because they had a massive emotional impact.

It is the linking of distant ideas that may provide us with new perspectives and possibilities.

    #22 The wind does indeed carry the seed @Ali Anani. This is why several if not many people will have an idea that is seems to be new at the same time all over the world.

    It's no ones idea and even Nikola Tesla pointed to a divine source where all knowledge comes from.

    None of us can really take credit for that which always exists and has always existed. All knowledge comes from the same place only it is in becoming wise they we recognize which knowledge is applicable and which knowledge is valueless other than it's really cool to understand it but has no real practical application in life.

    This is why the druids wrote it down on leaves. This way they would never be trapped by the view of one or one generation. It forced new eyes to look at it and update it as it applied to the now instead of being a prisoner of the past.

    This is where the human can give into narcissism and attempt to take ownership of an idea or concept or insist they deserve recognition for discovering absolutely nothing new as it takes a certain level of narcissism to assert that one deserves recognition for any given thing in life and that can sometimes be a healthy thing however when it is used to hold down others and elevate the self above others it is unhealthy for the sum regardless of how good it might be for the one or the few.

    It's an interdependent 3d reality we share and that means we all share the responsibility and accountability for how the world looks right now. Until we embrace that our interdependence and that responsibility to the sum history will continue to repeat itself.

    It's the 100th monkey effect that works on the fact that even though every word is not hear it is felt worldwide.

    This was the focus of a buzz I wrote on the power of the voice and what intuition is as it applies to the human to human contact.

    Once an idea is expressed even if it is ignored at the conscious level the seed is sown world wide.

    Once experience is had to reveal the idea often people think it is their idea when in realty they have been given the idea through no external source as all things are interconnected and the idea of external versus internal is one rooted in the flesh to give some idea of separateness and individuality.

    Internal and external don't exist except in the mind to give our life an individual feeling.

    Relationships are based on identity and sharing views that come from emotional attachment to an idea or concept. As we change our own views as we grow and refine ourselves our projection changes and the Law of Reflection kicks in and those who do not share our projected views can not reflect it back at us and then we move on to those who can reflect it back to us.

    People grow apart because they grow in different directions when they do not work at growing together. The idea of you have your life and I have mine and we live together will never produce a healthy or long lasting relationship.

    For any relationship to work in the long term it must be fluid and the growth must be mutual.

    This is why I say in a relationship it takes at least 3, the you, the me and the we.

    #18 Thank you dear @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA for opening up the discussion. Yes, employees today want to work with organizations that are consistent with their beliefs as well. Employees come with a position. Now the question, if we change this belief or attitude, then we also affect the velocity or rate of change. People are gravitated to their beliefs, but once these beliefs alter, the velocity of the organization changes. Here is the question that knocks on my mind: do we need to monitor beliefs and attitudes for if they change even slightly, the organization changes. Likewise; the organizational culture is. Do we need new indicators for change? Thank you Jean again for making me think and ask questions.

    A very interesting post, Ali Anani, with several great questions and ideas which should be discussed. Your comments - "The external world and internal world come together. It is upon us to make them work together and move us to success, or work against each other for us to lose our movement" is an excellent summation of personal life vs work and the many divisions between the two. In the past, employees wanted jobs which paid them a living and helped them support family. They did not always consider whether the company who hired them was interested in climate or 'green' issues, whether they were polluting the atmosphere. Those were separate from their own personal beliefs; should be ignored and unspoken of at work. On the other hand, todays workers want to work with companies whose mission supports their own personal beliefs. In short, as you say they want the internal and external to merge. Thanks for another excellent share, Ali.

    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.

I love this "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". I agree and I simply love the way you expressed it".
    Dear @Emilia M. Ludovino also responded and mentioned you in her comment "What an interesting reading dear @Ali Anani. Personally, I don't like the SMART goals setting, thus, don't work with them. I agree with what @Donna-Luisa Eversley wrote on her comment - "Goal setting for both needs flexibility and should be created based on objectives and expectations. Maybe it's 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...".

    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!

    You amaze me @Donna-Luisa Eversley! You are blessed to be so introspective and self-aware. I am still going through this exhaustive process to find the answer to your sacred question. What should I be doing NOW to make the biggest difference, both in my life and for others?

    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!)

    Do you find yourself justifying getting angry at your spouse, co-worker, child, parents, relatives? And you find really good reasons to do that. In fact, you’re so good at it, you’ve made it a hobby of making others feel bad.

    Educate yourself, learning from.others is a part of it, i think everybody is a mentor, some become a regular source.

    Don't surround yourself with like minded people in any other context except for individuals who hold their own and still understand and grow with you.
