Purposeful goals

Harry Langdon, Tutor at BPP Professional Education CI

13.30 - 14.30

Purposeful goals will focus on how to enhance motivation of goals; how we create goals related to our values and goal setting methods for success. This session will be useful to anyone who is determined to grow themselves to lead a more purposeful life. Focusing on what we want in life is key in order to stop aimlessly wandering. Writing structured goals is a key component to successful achievement, it is also vital to focus on the “why” around goals, as without a powerful “why” the goal is unlikely to be achieved. What you focus on, you become.
