Pain amd Pleasure

In order to build momentum in the goal setting process it is critical to identify the payoffs or lack of payoffs. Another way of getting at this is to spell out the pleasure of achieving the goals and the pain of not fulfilling them. In my case the pleasure of the goal regarding the hundred interviews is that it would enable me to fulfill a promise to my mentor,grow awareness about the effects of racial bias,engage more people in the dialogue about Jewish and Christian relations,and offer more opportunities for personal appearances and speaking engagements. The pain would be lost opportunities, fewer speaking engagements and a mediocre response to a promise I made to my mentor. If you can clearly in concrete terms identify the pain you will receive in not fulfilling the goals as well as the pleasure the attainment will provide you will have created strong leverage.
