What can today's psychology of motivation reply to the layman's question of "How do I attain my goals?" Most importantly, nowadays, research on the psychology of goals suggests that this question needs to be broken down by differentiating between successful goal setting and successful goal implementation. The distinction between goal setting and goal striving was originally emphasized by the German psychologist Kurt Lewin (1926). It turns out to be very useful for understanding the many new findings produced by the renaissance of research on goals (Gollwitzer & Moskowitz, 1996; Oettingen & Gollwitzer, 2001), and thus we will use it to organize our answer to the question of what people can do to increase their chances of meeting their goals. terms-of-use Gollwitzer, Peter M. 2011-03-25T09:27:38Z 2006 Gollwitzer, Peter M. 2011-03-25T09:27:38Z application/pdf eng Successful goal pursuit First publ. in: Psychological science around the world.
