Achieving the Impossible: Tips for Setting and Accomplishing Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals

Setting big, hairy, audacious goals (BHAGs) can be a powerful way to motivate yourself and your team to achieve great things. But how do you go about setting these types of goals in a way that is both effective and achievable? Here are a few tips to help you get started:

Start by defining your overall vision. A BHAG should be something that is truly inspiring and motivating, something that will get you and your team excited about the future. Take some time to really think about what you want to accomplish, and then craft a clear, compelling statement that captures that vision.

Break your goal down into smaller, more manageable chunks. A BHAG can be overwhelming if you try to tackle it all at once. Instead, break your goal down into smaller, more manageable steps that you can work on over time. This will help you stay focused and motivated, and will also make it easier to track your progress.

Get buy-in from your team. A BHAG is not something that you can achieve on your own. You will need the support and commitment of your team in order to make it happen. Take the time to talk to your team about your vision, and be sure to involve them in the goal-setting process.

Create a plan of action. Once you have your goal defined and your team on board, it’s time to start putting together a plan of action. Identify the key steps that you need to take in order to achieve your goal, and then put together a timeline and a budget.

Stay focused and motivated. Finally, remember that achieving a BHAG is not going to be easy. There will be setbacks and obstacles along the way, and it’s important to stay focused and motivated throughout the process.
