The month of May was filled with many graduations, from 3 year old preschool to graduate school. An exciting time that is filled with many emotions from joy to fear. As the graduate there are many decisions to be made, continuing down the higher education path, begin a new career, relocation and many more all which can be very stressful. While some have the details of their life planned, others find it impossible to plan their future. Planner or not, there will be major decisions that will impact their life after graduation.
Planned or unplanned we all have goals that we want to accomplish and these goals set the course for our decisions. As we start to look to the next fiscal year we are setting our goals as an organization, as a department and personally. Each of these processes play an important step to making the organization successful. Our goals help set the roadmap that we will travel down. If as an organization we are all traveling down the same road in the same direction our path is much clearer. But we also know that there are bumps in the road, detours, and roadblocks. These things called real life happen and we must adapt. Our route may change but our goal remains the same.
Sometimes taking the first step in doing something new is the hardest, but when you have a goal that you are trying to achieve it can make that first step easier. The steps that follow do become easier, but every step along the way is part of the process.
Goals help us become better, stronger versions of ourselves. So when you are asked to write down your personal goals on your self-evaluation, remember that goals help define the road that you will travel.
Congratulations to all of our graduates and wishing everyone all the best as you start down the road to achieving your goals.
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. – Henry David Thoreau
