Set A, B and C goals for yourself, and have your boss buy in to the plan. The A, B, C strategy comes from Kevin Eikenberry, writer of the “ & Learning” blog.
C goals are Comfortable. It doesn’t take much to achieve them.
B goals are Believable. They take some extra work. Achieving them would likely bring some sort of acknowledgment. If you fail, though, there’s no penalty.
A goals are Awesome. To hit them, you’d have to make some significant changes or come up with new ideas or processes. Strike a bargain with your boss: If you reach an A goal, you get a reward.
With a set of A, B and C goals, you’re distinguishing between bare-minimum expectations and stretch goals. You’re also letting yourself off the hook, if you don’t hit your “awesome” goals.
