The Ignite 2012! event was about the goals, outcomes and intentions we have for this year. Many people set ‘new years’ resolutions without firstly establishing what it is they want to achieve. To realise a resolution you need to set and achieve a goal. Once a goal is achieved it becomes a resolution (something that you do out of habit or routine). Without this fore-thought and preparation we put unnecessary pressure on ourselves with the potential of reaching a state of overwhelm quickly and dropping any intentions of working towards our targets.
So February seemed to be the perfect month to discuss goals, outcomes and intentions plus their place and purpose in our personal and professional lives.
We began by discussing the power and language of setting goals, outcomes & intentions. We explored the value in setting and executing goals, the ‘life-cycle’ of goals and so much more. This think tank was highly interactive with lots of valuable input from all guests. Here are some of the outcomes from the morning.
