It’s time to close the book on the past year and set new goals for this new business year! The new financial year is a great time to reflect, reset and set strategic goals. Here are some great simple goal-setting tips to consider.
What do I want to accomplish?
If you want a successful business, learn how to set and achieve goals by determining what you want your goals to be. Rather than thinking, “What goals do I want to set for my company?” try it with a different approach of “What do I want to accomplish?”, this way the result will be easier to determine and help you grasp what is important to you and your company.
Commit To Your Goals
Once you have set your goals, commit and cling to them. This can be done by frequently revisiting your goals and evaluating your progress towards them. If things are not going to plan, what can you do to fix it? If you are meeting your goals too quickly, set higher goals!
Inspiration can lead to great success. Visualise your goal, feel the achievement, see the physical manifestation of the goal and hear the hymns to your success.
You can stay inspired by following inspirational pages or listening to inspirational podcasts.
To be accountable for a goal means that you are responsible for reaching the achievements that you have set for yourself and your company. Setting time-focused goals will push you to accomplish your goals and have the drive to meet the deadlines.
Be honest with yourself and be willing to change a process if something isn’t working.
Don’t Burn Out
Take a break then re-focus. There are times when you may need to step away from everything to refresh your mind before jumping right back in. Taking a simple step back enables you to clear your mind to have a broader perspective of the progress and maybe even come up with new innovative ideas.
We tend to “learn from our mistakes” but did you know you can also learn from your achievements? Think about what worked and why? Be inspired by your own achievements and do more of them.
Celebrating achievements whether they are big or small can increase confidence and stimulate motivation.
