So, you’ve set a measurable goal for your business, and you’re excited to get started on the path to achieving it. But, setting the goal is only a tiny part of reaching it. Achieving it takes focus and dedication. Make sure you get on the right path by following these tips.
Accountability is essential if you want to reach your goal. An accountability partner holds your feet to the fire to make sure you do what it takes to complete your goal. They may have a similar goal, and you work together to keep each other motivated and accountable.
If you don’t have a partner, you can still stay accountable by telling people about your goal. The more people you tell, the more obligated you are to achieve it. When they ask you about your progress, you’ll be able to answer, “It’s going great” instead of “Yeah, about that. Well…”
Track your progress.
Tracking will help you stay committed to your goal. Whenever you run a few miles or make five phone calls to your clients to generate leads, document it. Not only will this help you form the habit of completing these activities, it’ll also help you establish the habit of tracking. Additionally, tracking allows you to review your progress from time to time so that you can see how far you’ve come and reconnect with your motivation.
Plan to win.
The final key to reaching your goal is to create a schedule and stick to it. Planning a daily schedule that includes goal-related activities helps you to ensure that you’ll complete your goal. However, it’s important to be flexible; sometimes things come up that will prevent you from doing a goal-related activity. If that happens, don’t sweat it. Just be sure to get back on schedule as soon as you can.
