5 Goal Setting Mistakes to Avoid

Sky’s the Limits – Don’t plan Low 

When creating your goals for 2019 I recommend that you break the rules of how you have gone about it for the last…well every year since you began creating goals.   That is, if your really want to make big changes in 2019! If all you want is to stay afloat, maybe do a little better than last year then setting goals the exact same way you have every year is fine.  However, if you’re serious about making some incredible, life changing things happen in 2019 – I dare you to Think Big -Think Different – Think “The Sky’s the Limit”!

Take a moment and remember back to when you first started.  The opportunities were limitless, the excitement of what was possible kept you awake at night, made you bound out of bed in the morning with the anticipation of what the day would bring.    Fast forward 3 – 5 – 10 -20 years.  How is it going?  Are you just getting by?  Trudging through your day with little to no excitement?  Doing the same thing asbefore with nothing new on the horizon? I dare you to break out of your annual routine and stop making these small thinking mistakes when setting your goals for 2019.  

Top 5 Goal Setting Mistakes that keep you and your business just “Good Enough”

  1. Review the numbers over the last 3 – 5 years.  Set goals for the next year based on that growth pattern
  2. Account heavily for the Economy as well as the Trends and Predictions of your industry
  3. Look at last year’s financials – Slap 10% on it and divide that among you and/or your sales team
  4. Only look at Financial Goals – don’t include project, personal or group goals
  5. Don’t write down HOW you plan on hitting those goals

Here’s a radical way of thinking about your goals.  Start with realistically Dreamingof what you want to accomplish.  Then GO BIGGER!  Yes!!  Hit that idea out of the park!  Begin brainstorming how this could really happen!!   Don’t worry about why it can’t happen, pull yourself and/or your team together and start brainstorming ideas on what you CAN do!  Not what HAS been done or worse yet, what OTHERS have done. 

 How much money do you want to make?  What projects to do you finally want to get done this year?  What new idea do you want to give a chance of breathing life into?  Where do you want to take your business?  Dream it! Believe it!  What does it look,feel, taste, smell like?  How will this change your life?   Include how you will measure as you go along.  How will you know when you have arrived?   What strategic steps you will take to accomplish it? Break it into Quarterly, Monthly, Weekly, Daily steps!   Write it all down, take the time to get into detail.  The more specific you are the easier it will be to reach your New Miraculous Goals.   

This is the concept of creating the life and lifestyle you want to participate in actively every day with meaning and joy!  I wish you an exhilarating, productive and lucrative 2019!!

How Do You Crush Procrastination?

Crush Procrastination Crush Procrastination! There is a better way to set goals! 

I have discovered that using Activity Goals vs. S.M.A.R.T. Goals is a huge benefit to Crush Pocrastination and consistently achieve goals I set for myself and my clients.  I don’t want you to think S.M.A.R.T. Goal setting is not useful, I have used it successfully for years and years.

Use Activity Goals to focus on the micro-actions.  Traditional goal setting (S.M.A.R.T.)  focuses on the outcome only, which leaves a void between what you want to accomplish and the steps to do it. Continue reading “How Do You Crush Procrastination?”

Don’t Play Small

Dont Play Small

Please don’t play small in your life!  I don’t care if you’re an employee, sales professional, supervisor, manager or the owner of a business.  Taking small steps will not keep you safe or unnoticed or avoid being perceived as arrogant or egotistical you are shortchanging yourself  and the world.  Don’t play small, it won’t help you or anyone.  At the same time do not measure small by some “World Standard” only you know when you are not doing what it is you truly want to.
