The midyear blues is still ongoing. Did you get through half of your new year’s resolution list? If not, it’s time for you to re-align your goals!

In the 1960s, Edwin Locke conceptualized goal setting and its relation to task performance. Specific goals contribute to higher task performance. Goals give us direction to perform and the effort required to put in (Management Study Guide, 2021). 

According to the Goal Setting Theory by Edwin Locke (1960), the vital feature of goals includes the following:

  • Specificity. Goals need to be specific. If you are planning to re-align your goals, answer the who, what, when, where, why, and how of any expectations of the goal.
  • Commitment. You need to commit to your goal. Commitment is the degree of determination that a person uses to accomplish a goal. 
  • Challenge. Goals should be challenging, but they also have to be realistic. The more complex the goal, the greater the reward. The more complicated the goals are, the more focused you become. 
  • Feedback. Feedback is essential to assess progression. Assess your performance in achieving the goals you have set this year. Have you gone through half of your list?

Goals are essential to motivate ourselves to move forward. Join us this 10th of July as we talk about our goals for the rest of the year! Tara, #UsapTayo!




  1. What goals have you accomplished during the first six months of the year?
  2. What goals do you still want to accomplish for yourself and your family for the rest of the year? 
  3. How can you help/support others in achieving their goals?


How do you feel about this?
