Ability to set goals for ourselves is necessary in order to set our life on the path towards desired outcomes. These goals are an important tool that enable us to go through that journey, but also to check and evaluate our progress. When we set ourselves on establishing these goals, it is important to recognize the difference between the outcome goals and goals tied to the process of reaching them. Outcome goals are identified by the things we want to achieve, while process goals tell us how we get to that point.
- One of the ways, known as outcome goal, is we view our goals is by knowing and stating clearly what we want.
- Another way, known as process goal, is to look at how you might go about positioning yourself for success in acquiring your “big want.”
- Obstacles will likely arise. But as long as your process allows for small detours, you will be as certain as you can possibly be that you will achieve your overall outcome.
“Looking from these vantage points, we get a more holistic picture of how we want to go about achieving our life successes using outcome goals and process goals.”
