Goal Achievement

I am a goal junkie.  Every year I list out my goals in areas like personal, family, business and work on a plan to achieve them.  You need to know where you want to go in order to get there.  Here are some guidelines that have helped me achieve over the years:

1)  Make the goal specific and measurable – a $ amount, # of pounds you want to weigh, etc.

2)  Write your goals down – I write mine down in a journal first and then put them into a spreadsheet (see #3 below)

3)  Break down your annual goal into monthly activities you need to have accomplished to reach your goal – then weekly, then daily;  here is anexample:  I want to earn $48,000 this year, I have to earn $4,000 per month – to earn that I need to sign up 4 accounts of $1,000 each month.  To sign up 4 accounts I have to meet and give proposals to 10 prospects (figuring a 40% close rate) and in order to have 10 prospect meetings in a month I need about 3 prospect meetings a week. – to schedule those 3 weekly appointments I need to call on 100 people a week who may need my service. – to warm up those 100 calls I am going to email and mail those people the week before.

4) Review your goals and progress frequently over the year – you need to keep reminding yourself to stay on track

5)  Celebrate acheivement – when you reach one of your weekly or monthly targets or complete a goal – reward yourself with something – a night out, maybe buy something to enhance your professional image, etc.  don’t over do it – but this will help you stay on track to your goals.

Happy New Year and enjoy mapping out your life and achiving what you set out to do.
