Linking to Parent Objectives?
Each goal must be linked to a parent objective before saving. The relevant strategic objectives can be found in your Objective Guide on the My Goals page.
Pro Tip: Shorten Your End Dates!
Goals with due dates far into the future tend to stagnate and go stale - break up your work into more, shorter term goals. Doing so creates wins for you, and it also better represents the progress you're making toward that objective. Win-win!
