Goal setting plays an important role for developing the strategies that will enable the individual to perform at the required goal levels and reach that goal, which in return leads to satisfaction, higher motivation, commitment and performance. Studies have shown that individuals who are provided with specific, difficult but attainable goals perform better than those given easy, nonspecific, or no goals at all.
