Setting of annual goal has been a regular phenomenon in modern organizations.
Rotary International, RI Districts and the Clubs set their annual as well as the long-term strategic goal in a regular basis. In an organization like Rotary where the leadership changes every year and the leader has to provide direction to his/her vision within the period, importance of “ goal setting “ is even higher.
Generally, the goal setting is a conscious process of establishing level of performance in order to obtain desire outcome and goal is the aim of an action or task. In Rotary we emphasize on goal setting mainly for the reason that – clearly defined and set goal, trigger our behavior towards actionable behavior, goal guide our focus, and once mind believes the body achieves. To make goal-setting effective we also need to set the structure that directs the action and behavior and improves the probable unsatisfactory performance and we normally set the
structure during the planning process.
The Goal of RID 3292- 2020/21 is the outcome of grass root observation, suggestions collected during the course of extensive club to club and the regional visits during the important District Assignments in the past and as the District Governor Nominee/Elect. It also reflects the orientation program organized for Governor Nominee, GETS, Extensive Interactions during the International Assembly, Vision and the yearly theme of the RI President and his expectations.
Our expectation is – the team we have formed is capable of taking the charge; Assistant Governors and the Committee Chairs in the District team are committed to provide the necessary support to the clubs, the District team and the Club Presidents have the requisite ability, energy, persistence in achieving the goal and are fully committed to the cause of Rotary, in the end, that positive energy will take us to the goal.
