At a key time in 2018 building a goal orientated plan for the year ahead is paramount!
- Grab a calendar. Pick a short term, manageable 3 to 6 month period to set your goals. Short term goals tend to get you into action right away, are easier to visualize, and because of their short term nature, they encourage you to set realistic, easy to accomplish goals and develop your calendar and work to fill in ALL upcoming events. If you develop and strong calendar you can get ahead and really optimize your upcoming events.
- Focus on one or two at a time. Don’t get overwhelmed by trying to change every area of your business or your calendar at the same time. Just pick a couple of areas that you want to begin working on, and give them all your focus. Then, move onto others or delegate – if you have a large number of good goals, spilt up your team or use more of your team.
- The goals you pick don’t have to be fully accomplished in the time period you’ve identified. This is the key! Rather, what you’re looking to do in the coming months is to simply develop momentum, establish a pattern, and begin getting excited about your business again.
- Write your goals down. You’ve heard over and over again, how much more effective goal setting is when you write your goals down. It’s totally true. Once you’ve identified your goals, write down in detail what it is you want to accomplish, or what part of each event you are going to get the most out of.
- Start now, today, with actions you can take to move yourself closer to your goals. Make 10 more cold calls today? Send your info to guests coming to your town for an event? Go buy a large wall calendar? Plan your own big bar event
- Make a list of actions you can take today and take them! Do the same thing tomorrow and get in the habit of taking an action each day to move you closer to your goals.
Until then, keep the questions coming and have a great profitable month.
