It is February 12th and we are almost mid month of the 2nd month of the year. So, I wanted to check in to see how you are doing with your goals? Are you on track? Did they slip your mind? Or maybe you just gave up on the whole entire process.
If you have drifted off course, or forgot about them let me share 3 quick tips to get you back on track and headed for success.
1. Set Measurable Goals. You must set a goal that you can measure by. Don't just say I am going to get more clients. You should say, I will get 10 new clients by June 15, 2014. Now you have a goal that you can measure. This will help in the future when you look back to see why the goal did or didn't work out.
2. Make a Specific Plan for that Goal. Now you need to plan on how you are going to achieve that goal. If your goal is to get 10 new clients by June how are you going to achieve that? Again, the more specific of the plan the better chances you have of achieving that goal. Example; I will get 10 new clients by June 15th, by sending out 20 marketing letters a week, posting to social media every other day with valuable information, attending a networking meeting once a month, etc. Now that is a specific plan that you can follow and measure.
3. Follow Through. Make sure you follow through on your plan. I know that working from home that is this can be a difficult task at times. If you have a hard time getting the actions steps done in your plan you can ask a friend to follow up with you, set your phone timer to remind you, reward yourself once you have completed all tasks that month, or hire a coach that will hold you accountable.
