I've explored goal-setting and planning with small business owners, creatives, and independent workers for over 12 years now. That means I've observed many different types of goal-setters. Some confidently choose a new goal and get to work. Others rebel against goal-setting entirely—opting to go with the flow and trust their guts. Still others are always juggling multiple goals at once, hesitant to wait on any good idea. And some research and analyze until they feel ready to choose their next target.
