Goal Setting: The Secret to Hitting Them Every Time

goals Jan 17, 2020

Because we are in a new year, most of us have goals that we intend to work towards throughout 2020. This is great but did you know that 80% of people do not meet their goals? This could be for several reasons like; lack of motivation, not being clear enough on the goal, lack of time, or just laziness. But what if I told you that there is a secret to accomplishing your goals? 


Goals are actually pretty easy to tackle if you go about it the right way. Far too often we shoot for the moon and forget to create a “launch plan” to get us there. The other issue I see often is setting goals for 12 months or more down the road. While it’s fine to have 12 month goals, you need to remember that it can be really hard to not get discouraged or sidetracked in 12 months. This is why I recommend setting goals in 90 day increments!


Setting goals for 3 months down the road is a lot more digestible and helps you take steps now to realize those goals. Setting goals this way will also help you pivot as needed and adjust long term goals without getting discouraged. Once you have your first 90 day goal set, you will need to make a plan of action over those 90 days to help you accomplish that goal.


Remember in school when your teacher had you do S.M.A.R.T goals? At the time you probably thought it was nonsense and that you wouldn’t need or use that in real life. But it turns out, formulating goals in a way that is specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-based is key to actually accomplishing those goals. So when you create your 90 day goals make sure you follow that acronym, it will help you create a plan of action that actually gets you where you want to go.


If you already have yearly goals set, I challenge you to break that goal out into smaller 90 day goals to ensure you stay on the right path. As always, if you need help getting this plan together or setting goals for your business that are more specific let me know and I will be happy to help you out!
