Goal Setting

Goal Setting For Success

Christmas has come and gone; now it’s time to get serious to ensure 2014 will be a huge success. As you know, most people make New Year’s resolutions every single year but generally they are built for failure. Within a couple of weeks they are long forgotten. With that in mind I wanted to share some of the Goal setting stuff that has worked brilliantly for me. I can’t claim credit for this I’m afraid as it was from a book I read recently called The Pledge by Michael Masterson. The concepts are simple but don’t let that fool you as they work like crazy! So here goes….

4 properties ALL Goals must have…

  1. Specific – goals must be specific. There’s no point wishing to be a good golfer. You need to be more specific and say you want to be a great golfer who has a handicap of no greater than “x”
  2. Actionable – hoping to winning the lottery is a dream. Hoping to become the No.1 sales person in your company is a goal.
  3. Time Orientated – Generating £1m in profits is a goal but a better more specific and time-orientated goal would be to generate £1m in profits by 31May 2015.
  4. Realistic – Generating £1m profits in 18 months whilst is a huge goal, it has actually been done many times before, however generating £1m profits in 1 month is less likely.

You must spend some time thinking what’s actually important to you. Don’t rush this stuff it’s really important. It’s your future you’re planning – don’t waste it!! Once you have brainstormed some ideas you need to write them down. Don’t skip this step or it’s more than likely you are doomed before you start. Extensive research has shown time and time again that people who write down their goals are far more likely to achieve them. Masterson also does something I love in his book. His big goals are set for seven years out. He then breaks this down into smaller objectives 7 Year Goal – To build a business that generates a minimum of £1m net profits First year Goal – To develop 2 new products that each generates a minimum of £50k profits Monthly Objective– Brainstorm & Plan product 1 Weekly Objective – to read 2 books on the subject and plan ideas

Can You See How It Works??

Can you see how the big goal is then broken down into smaller bite sized objectives? These objectives are then broken down further into daily tasks. Each objective is based on the one that precedes it working towards the 7 year goal. It’s basically have a big picture then reverse engineer where you want to be by breaking it down into smaller and smaller tasks. You’ll be amazed if you start using this sort of goal planning how “on-target” you feel once you start taking action.
