And why is it important?
A time horizon, also known as a planning horizon, is a fixed point of time in the future at which point certain processes will be evaluated or assumed to end.
*Do you remember when we used to quote the Oxford English dictionary?
It’s really just a fancy pants term for goal setting.
Something I know a little bit about.
I’ve often said that a goal is just a dream without a date on it.
The all important date.
Or the new fancy pants; Time Horizon.
But there’s a little more to it than that.
I’ve noticed that people who are good at achieving their goals are usually excellent at overcoming procrastination.
They set their time horizon/goal and then become relentless at getting over the line.
Something has been niggling me about Time Horizon.
The problem with a horizon is as you move closer… it moves.
That’s why I like the term ‘Getting it over the line’ for achieving your goal.
When it’s done… it’s done.
What are you getting over the line?
I’ll send a copy of my book How to Be Brilliant, which contains the ultimate goal setting guide, for our favourite comment.
