This week I want to get back to basics.
When I start working with a client, one of the first things I ask them to do is to complete my 12-month goal worksheet. Something happens when people plan their success strategically; not only do they meet their goals, but they exceed them by leaps and bounds.
What didn’t seem possible previously suddenly becomes reality.
That is why in addition to establishing realistic goals to achieve, I also ask them to write down their “Hairy Scary Goals” - a goal so big, it almost scares them.
Because as you become better at goal setting and execution, your reality is going to change. What is not possible now may just be possible tomorrow.
So really take some time to think about it; what do you want your life and business to look like and feel like in 12 months? What is reasonable to achieve and what would be amazing to achieve?
The next step when I work with clients is to take one of their 12 month goals and to set out a plan to accomplish it by organizing it into 4 main objectives - each taking no more than 90 days to complete.
So if your 12 month goal is to hit $200,000 in revenue, what are 4 major areas of your business that you will need to focus on?
- Launch new program?
- Hold a holiday sale?
- Attend a retreat to raise your vibe?
- Add an affiliate program?
These are all hypothetical, but an example of how you could break up your year into four 90-Day segments and then create goals within those.
Make sense? Now tell me, what did you select as your main 12 month goal?
