Are you watching your days appear in the rear-view mirror with surprise either in delight or horror? How are you coming along on the goals that you set forth for your day, week, month and year? Have you hit any of your targets? Could you have been more focused in order to attain them?
I evaluate the metrics I set forth for big goals on a quarterly basis. How many new clients have I brought in? How many new projects have clients signed on for?
If you have not met the goals you have set forth there’s always time to catch up. If you haven’t hit any of your goals or metrics, then why? Are your goals too substantial to be attainable? Can you scale back your goals or can you reorganize your time to be able to devote more focus on reaching those goals?
Many people believe that if you have your goals written in front of you where you can look at them every day it provides accountability to work on those goals. You can apply this to life and business. Perhaps you’ve had a goal to eat healthier. If it’s written somewhere you can see it – on your calendar or on a list on your phone it may make you feel bad about picking up that donut in the lunchroom. You should have the same reaction to the busy activities that take you away from reaching your goals. Get back on track with laser focus and you will crush your this week, this month, this quarter and this year.
