Financial Goal Setting
May 06, 2020
Do you set goals? Any goals will do, but do you set them?
I set mine monthly at the moment, with everything going on, but usually every 90 days. I write one revenue goal, one systems or process goal, one launch goal and one social media/email list goal. That's it. I don't write 50 goals as I can't achieve them, plus it keeps me focussed. I put them on my computer lock screen so I am reminded of them every morning when I log in.
It is so important to set goals in your business. Time easily slips away and you find you are no further forward than you were 6 months ago. But making sure they are things you are going to work on and can aim for are critical.
When you set a revenue goal, do you just pluck a number out of the air, or take last month's number, or do you look at how that number will be made up? How much time will you be working over the period, what work are you going to do? Breaking down your goals into manageable steps is key to making sure you will achieve them.
Accountability is also key to ensuring you keep on track - find someone to talk about your goals with and help you keep on track. It's easy to get bogged down in the minutiae of your business, but you need to ensure your goals drive you and your business towards your ultimate vision.
