[Think Like An Entrepreneur Thursday] Ep. 8 Three Steps to Setting Business Goals

starting a business | Dec 04, 2017

Learning how to properly goal set is crucial to not just the success of your business, but honestly everything in life. Typically, people set very vague goals.  For example: "I want to be rich", "I want to lose weight"  Neither of which really does anything if you’re actually trying to get results.

There are three things you should do when setting your goals that are actually achievable, while still pushing you.

1. Be specific: You can't just say I want to make six figures, or lose weight. You have to be specific. In order for it to be specific, you can have a set goal of what it means to actually achieve it.

2. Work you way backwards: Once you have that date set, figure out what you need to do on a monthly basis or weekly basis or even daily basis. This way you are focused day in and day out.  You know what needs to get done on a consistent basis to reach this goal. Ever day the tasks that you do should not be by chance. The last place you want to be is being reactive every day in your business versus proactive.

3. Make sure to make your goals measurable: You can’t achieve goals if you’re not sure the exact number it’s going to take to achieve it. This aligns with being specific, but you have to be able to measure with not just the end goal, but be able to measure your progress along the way. This gives you the opportunity to determine if you’re on the right path or need to pivot along the way.
