THE ZEN OF GOAL MANIFESTATION
Organizational and corporate approach to goal setting and goal achievement is straight forward. Goal setting and achievement is taught as a technical skill class to high-school seniors or freshman year in college. Freshman year college programs offer insight and training in goal-setting and goal achieving.
Leadership within the context of any organizational team requires familiarity with the framework of goal-setting and achievement.

The common element in the practices of goal-setting and achievement consists first of a definition of what is the goal. A goal is a specific objective to be achieved and its associated plan outlining the actions steps required to achieve the goal.
Classically the defined goal has to be specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic and time-bounded. In the corporate world, the goal must be written and shared with a team or with a supervisory level in the case of an individual goal involving personal productivity. When the goal involves a team it is shared with the team. Planning the goal achievement involves the team as appropriate.
Strategies to manifest results are ideally a consensus agreement of the team. Responsibilities are shared among team members. The progress towards the goal achievement is reviewed periodically.
If this description sounds to you linear and mechanistic – you are right. It is typical for the western philosophy to view the world in straight Euclidian geometric lines.

But wait. There is a vast universe outside the corporate world. Intelligent people who achieve big goals are aware that goal-setting and goal achieving is not linear and rigid as described. Some paths to achievement are circular and other paths are elliptical.
Goals, all goals, materialize through spiritual channels. Anything that is spiritual is not necessarily aligned in a straight line. There is this saying:
“Thoughts are like boomerangs, returning with precision to their source.
Thoughts move in circles and ellipses. Every completed cycle is returns to the sender after undergoing some “processing”, some remodeling. A thought that returns is reshaped and “refitted”.
As a thinker you do not need to do anything physical, except observe the intellectual process.
We call it, Zen Attraction & Manifestation.
Goal achievement should be as gentle as a Zen like state.
We refer to it a Zen-like process knowing full well that no one knows for what the Zen state is.
As we explain elsewhere each goal is first conceived in the mind. A goal is a thought. A goal has a thought at its inception. A thought is spiritual, and everything spiritual has a way of materializing.
The Law of Attraction is always creating. It does not need committees, nor does it obey management’s deadlines. Once you wrote down a goal the Law of Attraction starts to assemble and match the required components for completion and final manifestation of the objective. The Law of Attraction processes are ceaseless. The Law of Attraction does not go on a holiday vacation.
The process of manifestation can be effortless if you do not stand on the way of manifestation. The Universe is infinitely rich in resources and the Universe does not need human assistance in manifesting. The sun does not obey a thermostat installed by humans.
Time to manifestation or a “deadline” is not subject to “management’s” directives because time is relative. People and governments change their time zones to fit their convenience. They call the time they set standard time or move the digit on the clock and call it day light savings’ time. Big corporations notoriously miss their production deadline.
At any given time. There is a lot of time or there is no time. It depends on your thinking.

Here is what you and your team can do to achieve a goal.
Decide among yourselves what the goal is, as clearly as you can.
Determine what supportive resources or components you will need to materialize – manifest the goal.
Do not change your mind about your goal in the midst of the process.
Anticipate your receiving your resources from any supplier, or source, expected or not expected.
Watch how the goal is manifested in a Zen-like posture.
If your help is necessary you will be told.
