9:00 – 10:00 am Growth Over Goals
Jordan Montgomery, Tiffin, Iowa
How often do you obsess over your goals? Popular culture encourages us to set big goals and to strive to reach them. We set benchmarks and thresholds and go to work focused entirely on reaching these markers of success – less interested on how we get there and instead only concentrating on reaching the finish line. However, this linear attention on goals often hinders true growth in the areas that matter most. As John Maxwell famously said “If you focus on goals, you may hit your goals, but that doesn’t guarantee growth. However, if you focus on growth, you will grow and always hit your goals.” Discover four main areas of growth you can work on to not only reach your goals but also to improve your life.
