Weekend Poll Results: Early Days for 2018 Goal Setting

With thanks to all who participated, here are your responses to my question … Have you established goals for 2018? If so, how are you doing two weeks in?

Three out of four have set goals for 2018

… and 41% of respondents have already developed strategies or an action plan to achieve such goals, with another 44% working on it.

Communicating your goals to others is another way to increase your level of accountability. As of mid-January, 48% of respondents have made their goals known to others; another 7% said they’ve either have done so, or will be communicating their goals this week.

 

What about metrics?

Good question. 65% of respondents have identified timelines within which to achieve the results they want.  58% of you have established metrics by which you can measure success.

I’ll be writing more about goal setting in the weeks ahead. For now, have a look at the data below.
