Action!!

We all know that to be able to build a successful business, we must take action. The question is … What Action?

Before we take action we need to know where we want to take our business. Hmmm … sounds a lot like I have to go through the dreaded goal setting exercise that has never makes me any money! Well you’re half right! Most goal setting exercises don’t make you any money because they are more philosophical than actionable. I have found a way to set goals that is simple and actionable.

Set SMART goals; Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-based. This system can be used for long term goals, short term goals, as well as daily goals. Let’s take a look at how to use the SMART system. By the way, this system does not cost you a dime.

1 year SMART GOAL

Step one – SPECIFIC:  $200,000 in revenues

Step two – MEASURABLE: Yes

Step three – ACHIEVABLE: Yes, this 25% higher than last year

Step four – RELEVANT: Yes, this fits into my long term wealth building

Step five – TIME-BASED: Yes, 1 year

1 month SMART GOAL

Step one – SPECIFIC:  $16,666 in revenues

Step two – MEASURABLE: Yes

Step three – ACHIEVABLE: Yes,

Step four – RELEVANT: Yes, this fits into my one year goal

Step five – TIME-BASED: Yes, 1 month (20 days)

Daily SMART GOAL

Step one – SPECIFIC:  $833 in revenues

Step two – MEASURABLE: Yes

Step three – ACHIEVABLE: Yes

Step four – RELEVANT: Yes, this fits my 1 month goal

Step five – TIME-BASED: Yes, daily

Here is how you chart your actionable items. In my business I know I must reach out and touch 10 new people every day to generate $833 per day.

Actions

Step one – SPECIFIC:  40 phone calls or 15 in-person visits

Step two – MEASURABLE: Yes

Step three – ACHIEVABLE: Yes, if I block the time and make it priority number one

Step four – RELEVANT: Yes and absolutely must be done

Step five – TIME-BASED: Yes, TODAY

Have fun and get excited! You will accomplish your goals and make your dreams come true.
