Are your team goals unattainable?

Some goals can be so ambitious that they are never actually achieved. Teams can easily become demotivated if goals are constructed in a way that does not allow for a sense of accomplishment or that does not provide a sense of progress. If your goals are too large, consider breaking them up into chunks that are more easily accomplished. Consider structuring your larger objectives into smaller goals that can be accomplished in a period of 2-4 weeks. This is a long enough period that a considerable amount of work can occur, but not so long that a team loses momentum and becomes underproductive.
