The higher goal a person pursues, the quicker his ability develops, and the more beneficial he will become to the society.

Is There a Blueprint for Goal Setting?

This isn’t the first time I’m writing an article about goal setting. In a previous article, I discussed Keen CLEARWATER CNX Walking sandals black/gargoyle 7i7EmKl
. Then yet again in another article, I broke down Banana Republic Womens Knotted Crossover Slide Navy Size 10 tGAxzl
process used by life coaches to help their clients set practical goals.

The above two topics are undoubtedly valuable and will provide you with tremendous insights about what it takes to set useful goals. However, there is a little more to goal setting that is still yet to be discussed. In fact, there are critical elements for goal setting that are easily overlookedthat we will address in this article.

With these elements in place, you will be able to generate the momentum you need to achieve your goals. Without these elements in place, you may struggle to even get started.

Breaking Down the Five-Step Goal Setting Process

Let’s now, break down the elements of effective goal setting into five distinct steps.

As you set your goals, it’s crucial that you work through each one of these steps in the order they are presented.

Each step of this process will help you build a strong foundation for the work that lies ahead. Moreover, each of these steps will help you make the necessary mental shifts required to generate the momentum you need to achieve your goal.

Let me put this another way: If you follow these five steps as outlined here, you will effectively cover all your bases. In other words, you will put in place all the necessary pieces on your chessboard tohelp you checkmate your goal.

If you follow these five steps as outlined here, you will effectively cover all your bases. In other words, you will put in place all the necessary pieces on your chessboard tohelp you checkmate your goal.

Now, of course, there are no guarantees. You still need to do the necessary work to bring your goal to fruition. However, you will likely experience far less resistance by following this process. Subsequently, this will help you to generate the momentum you need to pursue your goal with more freedom and purpose.

Step 1: Define What You Want

Your first step is to get very clear about what it is you would like to achieve.

The goal you set is, of course, only limited by your imagination. You could, for instance, set goals for your career , for your Ralph Lauren Snow Boots 0pnb6sIo7
, for your ASICS GELCOURT SPEED Multicourt shoes azure/blue print GxeKi0q8k
, for contribution, and even for Superdry Florence Stiletto Boots EoBEtfh4
. The goal itself doesn’t really matter. What matters is that while setting these goals you are able to answer the following three questions:

I’m not quite sure what an “Amazon-like Experience” is but I think I can figure it out. Is that the model librarians should aspire to?

Does your library deliver an Amazon-Like Experience?

Assuming we even knew what that was, would that be the experience you’d want to deliver at your library?

“Amazon-Like Experience” is a phrase that is relatively new to me. I first encountered it when reading a higher education newsletter and came across Bottega VenetaLatte calf bv grand sneaker D2OGka
.

Out of curiosity I did a Google search to see if “Amazon-Like Experience” is an actual thing. While “a thing” is probably not the best way to put it, there are certainly a number of references to the phrase. One comes away with the impression that “Amazon-Like Experience” is some sort of user experience gold standard.

What is the experience? If you’ve ever used Amazon – probably everyone reading this blog has – you have a good idea. Convenience. Ease of Use. Vast selection. Quick problem resolution. Usable and user friendly website. Overall, it’s an experience that is tough to match.

According to this article on online education, “Amazon has set the standard for eCommerce engines. Non-traditional, adult learners, expect an Amazon-like experience since they are searching for, and purchasing, courses online.” Granted, user expectations are definitely shaped by high-quality experiences received at both brick-and-mortar and online retailers and service providers that excel at user experience. But when we say that someone is expecting an “Amazon-Like Experience” what exactly do they want? What does it look like?

Start with ease-of-use. Literally anyone can use Amazon with a single instruction or prior knowledge. We talk about an experience being based around “the Skechers Sport FLEX APPEAL Trainers slate ZH3qhfM1
” and Amazon allows users to do their jobs with a minimal number of clicks. They can find what they need and order it quickly. There are features galore that allow users to see past activity, to identify future purchases or have items recommended to them.

There’s no question that for online retail, Amazon sets a mighty high bar for user experience. Most library search systems, from the local discovery layer to the largest global database, are currently far from an Amazon-Like Experience. That said, Amazon is a good model in many ways for great online learner experience. Except for one thing.

I’d venture to say that most Amazon customers feel little personal connection with the company. It can be a challenge to get personalized assistance when you need it. Problem resolution is quite good, but sometimes human intervention is needed and that can be difficult to get with Amazon. If that is also part of the Amazon-Like Experience, then librarians can do better.
