Research exploring the effects of goal orientation on an individual's tendency to perform actions consistent or inconsistent with their focal goals has identified that individuals primed with goal progress are more likely to perform goal inconsistent activities as compared to individuals primed with goal commitment. In this research, we propose an individual's self-regulatory focus as a potential mediator explaining the effects of goal orientation on an individual's actions. We further propose a set of variables viz. level of concreteness of focal goal, stages of goal completion, and temporal distance of the focal goal from the present as potential moderators influencing the effects of goal orientations on an individual's actions.
