Develop a goal setting mindset simplifies the goal-setting process. Drawing on personal resources such as enthusiasm, optimism, attitude and commitment is more important than the process itself, according to Taylor. In this book he simplifies the goal-setting process, offers alternatives to that process, and provides simplified guidelines to follow in order to more easily achieve both personal and organizational goals.
The book also summarizes the benefits to be derived from goals, explains why the character of the goal-setter is more important than the goal-setting process itself, shows how to how to schedule time to work on your goals, and illustrates how a life purpose can work hand in hand with your goals.
The book also contains helpful advice from dozens of other goal-setting writers and management experts, and includes a bibliography of over thirty reference books for the further study of goal-setting.
