Many people get tired of the word “goals” and “resolutions”. They kind of roll their eyes at those who set goals, jaded by past experience. Truth is, 80% of the populations never set goals and of the 20% who do, only 30% reach their goals. (source: goal setting guide)
The reason people DO set goals, however, is those who do are more successful. Another statistic showed 83% of people do not set goals, but 14% set goals in their head and are 10x more successful and 3% write their goals and are 30x more successful. Those who write their goals typically have them posted and review them often (daily, weekly, etc.) so they are top of mind and regular activity is planned to accomplish the goal.
