I’d like to talk to you about How To Set Goals To Achieve Success In 2013
You’ve probably heard the quote “if you keep doing what you’ve been doing you’ll keep getting
what you’ve been getting.” Perhaps you set some big goals in 2012 but
then lost sight of them as you became busy trying to achieve them.
Building and running a business online requires a lot of discipline especially if you’re trying
to do it all yourself. Often times you may feel overwhelmed because
you continually have to build and market your website.
Some of these things may include content writing, search engine optimization, pay per click
marketing, video marketing, link building, etc.
These activities could easily occupy a full time marketing staff. Because you can’t afford
to hire employees you do it all yourself. So let me ask some important questions.
How do you prevent being in the same situation in your business as you were the previous
year? What type of goals should you make?
How do you make SMART goals? How do you create a plan to achieve your goals?
Let’s address the first question. 1. How do you prevent being in the same position
in your business as you were the previous year?
Spend some time reflecting on the things that didn’t get accomplished last year so you don’t
make the same mistakes in the upcoming year. Create 3 columns on a piece of paper and enter
these 3 headings Failures, Why It Happened, Corrective Actions.
2. What type of goals should you make? Your lofty goal should be your most important
one. Often this is called the BHAG or big, hairy, audacious goal.
For Example: “I want to generate enough passive income to be able to travel anywhere at anytime
without worrying about where the money is coming from.”
Picture what type of life you want to have if you acheive your goals.
Your monetary goals should actually be a byproduct of the life you want to lead.
Some of these may include: Family, Church, Charity, Community and Health
Goals If you put all your eggs in one basket, for
example just concentrating on your business then it can have a detrimental effect on other
areas of your life. To learn about S.M.A.R.T goals and how to
