Where are you and your business now? Where do you want it be in the future?
It really doesn’t matter what kind of business you have or what size your business is, you will achieve a lot more in less time if you have well defined specific goals. One great way to do so is by developing SMART Goals.
Specific – Ensure you have a well-defined goal. State what you want to achieve and when you want it accomplished by. Also look at how this goal will be achieved.
Measurable – Define how you will measure progress and the end result of the goal. Create a plan to achieve the goal with targets and milestones so you know you are moving in the right direction.
Attainable – Make sure your goal is attainable and not out of reach. Setting unattainable goals will only set you up for failure!
Realistic – You want goals that can be accomplished and that lead to steady improvement.
Timely– Putting a timetable on your goals will allow you to accomplish more while measuring the progress you are making towards your end result.
Because of these factors, anyone using SMART goals is forced to be accountable which ultimately makes reaching your goals much more achievable. Accomplishing these goals will give you a boost of self-confidence and enthusiasm going forward that will push you and your business to far greater success.
When you have your well-defined goals set make sure to give them a prominent place on your desk in work, or hanging on the wall. Wherever you decide to place your goals make sure it’s somewhere you will see them often and that will keep you focused on achieving them.
Don’t forget to review your goals along the timeline set to see if you are on track. And if you’re not doing so well, identify why and what can be done to fix this.
The only way to grow and improve is though meeting your goals! You can use SMART Goals in everything you do, from living a healthier lifestyle to taking the vacation of your dreams and building the business you’ve always wanted.
So what do you want to accomplish, personally or professionally, over the next few months, the year, or in the next couple of years, and how will your goals and planning get you there?
