Small Business Goal Setting
1. Write them down – A written goal is much more powerful than one that remains in your thoughts. Once it has been written, your subconscious sees it as a declaration or intent and it becomes more likely to happen.
2. Share them with someone who can hold you accountable – You can’t really do this until step one has taken place. By sharing with someone besides yourself, that written declaration becomes more of a commitment. Your subconscious will worry about being asked about how your goals are progressing and naturally want to respond favorably.
I’ve been going through a lot of goal setting exercises over the past couple weeks and have received some great ideas and strategies that are even more detailed than what I just discussed. However, over the years, I’ve found these two simple principles are the most powerful.
Happy New Year!
