The Road to Success: 5 Ways Goal-Setting Can Get You There

Ah, the time of year when the air is crisp with possibility and excitement! Business owners take a moment to pause and reflect on the past year, considering how they can take their ventures to soaring new heights in the future.

And it's not just entrepreneurs who are feeling the buzz - students and non-business owners alike are taking stock of their own progress and charting a course towards their wildest dreams. But let's be real, it takes more than just wishful thinking to bring these goals to fruition. It takes focus, hard work, and unwavering determination. So let's roll up our sleeves and get to work, shall we?


Follow these 5 steps to help get you to your goals.

1. Setting goals allows you to laser focus on what you want. Instead of waking every morning with no idea what tasks to focus on, having your goals written down allows you to make a daily to-do list with tasks leading toward your goal. No more “flying by the seat of your pants.” Instead, follow your action plan or checklist and focus on important tasks instead of busy work.

2. Keep those goals in sight and look at them daily. A vision board hung in your office reminds you every day about your WHY…why are you working so hard? What do you want to accomplish? Even if you write a simple goal list, keep that list posted right next to your desk so you can read it every day. Keeping a list hidden in your desk or in a file somewhere on your desktop doesn’t serve the same purpose; soon enough your list is forgotten and you’re off track.

3. Be prepared for some hiccups along the way. No one’s path is smooth, especially in business. Usually, these roadblocks show up just when you’re feeling confident that you know what you’re doing. Instead of allowing these to ruin your day, find a way to resolve the problem and get back on track toward your goals as soon as possible. Once you resolve the problem, write down the solution in case you experience another similar problem in the future. Having a list of possible solutions is much less stressful than not knowing what to do.

4. Find an accountability partner. Voicing your goals to a partner brings your goals to life and it forces you to do the work or risk the shame of telling your partner you didn’t meet your goals. An effective accountability partner will ask follow-up questions and won’t be

afraid to hold their partner’s “feet to the fire.” One way to make this partnership more fun is to make a consequence whenever someone doesn’t deliver on their weekly goals. Whether that’s paying for lunch or donating to a charity, it raises the bar a bit higher.

5. Know and understand the real purpose of your goals. This step requires digging a bit deeper into your life and your WHY. Why do you want to earn six figures? To pay for your high schooler’s college so they will graduate debt-free? So you can move your family to your dream home? So you can donate money to local charities? There are no right or wrong answers. Your answer will make these goals important to YOU. Grab your FREE Goal Tracker and get started today!
