Do you take the time regularly to set and plan for your business goals? If you haven’t done so in the past, then I highly encourage you to do so now especially when we are still at the beginning of this very special year 2020. There is a lot being said about this special year 2020 but nothing special will happen unless you start planning for some success to happen. So start setting some time aside, ask yourself what do you really want to do in your business? What do you want to see happen in your business, what kind of growth or success you want to achieve? How do you want to feel about your business at the end of this year?
I remember setting my goals and planning strategy for 2019 as I stepped up in believing I can achieve more. Honestly, when I started the planning process, it looked incredibly unreal and did freaked me out a bit and also I doubted myself if I could really pull everything off. Despite the doubts, I just continue working on the steps which moved me closer to my goals. At the end of 2019, I sat down to reflect on my year and oh boy! I just couldn’t believe how much I have achieved. And the process of setting goals and planning the roadmap has been crucial to my own success.
So let’s start looking at why this process of business goal planning is the secret to success. It includes a variety of different factors which first is efficiency. When you know what you want and where you want to go, you will then create a roadmap on how to get there. With the clarity on how to get to the destination, you can focus on each step and level of importance or priorities in that journey. Without that clarity and roadmap, you will instead spend endless time figuring out what you need to be working on next, what or which pieces of the puzzle could be missing. By planning your business goals, you will know exactly what to do or what comes next.
If you don’t believe me, just try it. Decide on a big goal for this quarter of the year. Write the goal down where you can see it in front of you. Research to find the steps required for you to take. Even faster, if you seek a mentor who is a dozen steps ahead of you who has achieved this goal as she/he will then be able to work with you in creating a strategy and daily to-do lists for you to work on what needs to be done each day for you to achieve your goals. Then you need to get to work and start noticing what happens next. You start to think of things which didn’t occur to you before. You come up with creative ways, reach out to your tribe, run a fun promo that creates excitement and you will reach more new traffic which equals more clients whom you can make a difference to.
Now let’s talk about the subconscious. So far we’ve been focused on what we are actively doing to make progress by making a plan, setting goals, creating a roadmap and following through each step required. There is another dimension to all this and that is what is going on in our subconscious mind. While we are busy ploughing through our to-do list, cooking dinner for the family, and even sleeping, our subconscious mind is working towards those goals as well.
Also, I truly believe when you committed yourself with courage, The Universe then will meet you halfway and reward you with abundance like resources or help you need to make your goals come true.
In short, planning and setting goals is important because it helps you grow faster. That means you end up with more success for yourself and spending more time with your loved ones rather than spending long crazy hours slaving away at your desk with stress and frustration. But most of all is, this process will get you out of your comfort zone and helps build your confidence and believe that you can do and achieve more in your business and your personal life! And while doing this, you will be surprised how many people you will be inspired as they watch you step up in being the best you can be.
