Leadership On the Go: Goals

Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? Luke 14:28

The above verse are the words of Jesus talking about the cost of following Him. Jesus was telling those who would hear that the cost of discipleship is very high, even to the point of leaving everything behind.

Have you counted the cost of leadership and goal setting? A leader without goals is like a spectator without something to gaze upon. Here’s another cheesy statement: Know Goals Know Progress, No Goals No Progress..

So if you are leading a business, church or band, you need to have short-term and long-term goals. Goals give you a measuring stick and a guide for decision making.

Short-Term Goals:
Goals that can be achieved in a quarter or year.

Long-Term Goals:
Goals that can be achieved in a 2-5 year period.

Make your goals attainable and impossible for one person to accomplish. Making your goals attainable leaves room for hope and positive moral. Also, make goals that the team can rally behind to only accomplish together. Keep setting goals in order for your organization to continue moving forward.
