"Have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?"
Goal setting is one of the most crucial attributes needed for growth and success, in both business & personal life as it;
- encourages you to take action
- encourages accountability
- enables you to be very specific
- be clear about what you want
Goals give you a sense of meaning and purpose – a sense of direction.
There are different ways of goal setting; we tend to focus on setting goals for the short term (to be achieved within one year) and for the long-term (to be achieved in over at least 5 years).
When short term goals are achieved, you feel the motivation and confidence to achieve your bigger goals, which will then shape most aspects for rest of your life.
Many people avoid goal setting because when a goal isn’t achieved, it shows a sign of failing to commit to others and ourselves, which can knock confidence, trust and self-belief. Goals can often be set too unrealistically – many often don’t know how to set goals to achieve long-term results, and don’t realise the importance of being able to walk before you run.
The implications of not having the ability to set goals effectively (or not setting goals at all), really do make a huge difference to your business. Without goals, how can you take your business where you want it to be?
Creating a future vision for the business is common for a lot of business owners, but without setting achievable goals for everybody involved along the way, how are you expecting to meet this achievement?
Goal setting is the common denominator of successful businesses and individuals.
What if there was a way to learn how to set and achieve effective goals to your specific needs, which will:
- increase growth
- profitability and
- cash flow for your business
As well as learning effective systems that can be used in various areas of your business and also your personal life? Wouldn't that be great!
The Breakthrough Day Programme
IS YOUR BUSINESS ON TRACK FOR SUSTAINABLE GROWTH?
Breakthrough Day is a well-established, highly successful 3 monthly planning day. Its purpose is to enable business leaders to take a step back from continually working in the business to work on the business, and to visualise where they are heading.
This may include objectively assessing where they are now and specifying long term goals; next planning what they would like to achieve this year, all the way down to what specific actions will they work on now, to ensure their business and their personal life is on the right track.
