Keep your eye on the prize
Tosin Akinwekomi, CPA, CMA, calls it “finding your north star.” When the Emerging Leader award recipient spoke at last year’s No Limits conference, he offered sage advice about goal setting and the difference between short-term and long-term goals. A “north star goal” isn’t about going from a B- to an A, it’s about setting a long-term goal that’s much bigger. Starting your own business, writing a book, rocking your dream career. Keeping your eye on why you’re working so hard will help keep focused and prioritize what’s most important to you. Pick the right goal posts to ensure you’re spinning your wheels to get somewhere you really want to be.
