It’s the beginning of the year, a time when many of us set goals for our businesses and personal lives. However, many people will forget about these goals within a few months because they haven’t made SMART goals. SMART goals are Specific and written, Measurable, have an Achievable outcome, are Realistic in time and skill and are Time-based. These goals tap into your strengths to help you achieve the numbers you want to this year in regards to closings, leads and referrals. Here’s how to set them.
1. Picture success. Visualization is a powerful tool that allows you to focus on the most important aspects of success. It’s more than choosing an arbitrary number to shoot for—it involves seeing how achieving your goals will impact your life. When you take the time to see every detail of the future you’d like to live, it can motivate you to achieve your goals.
2. Break it down. Goals are easier to achieve when they’re broken down into smaller pieces. Break down your large goals into smaller goals, including 10-day goals and 3 month goals. Think of these goals as milestones that will keep you motivated and will make achieving your goals a bit easier.
3. Track. We can’t stress enough the importance of tracking. When you document your activities and results, you create a clearer picture of your progress and provide motivation when you need it most.
