Business goals are so important. They help you understand where you intend to go in business and what you need to do to get there.
Have you considered your goals lately?
Here at Home Sorted! we believe that the close of one year and the start of another is the perfect time to reassess your current goals and put new ones into motion.
For this blog, we’re going to discuss the best way to set goals and what these goals can look like for individual people.
Visualise your end goal
First things first – you need to visualise your end goal. Sit down with a notebook or your laptop and write a list of things that you hope to achieve. These will become the foundations of your business goals.
Break it down
In order to achieve goals, you need to break them down into smaller and more manageable parts. For example, if your main goal is to turn a net profit of X amount, this can be broken down into monthly and weekly earning goals.
Commit to the process
Goal setting and achieving takes time. For this reason, you need to ensure that you commit 100% to the process. This is best achieved if your goals have a personal edge – something that will help you thrive both in business and in your personal life. For example, learning a new skill or better juggling your work-life balance.
There may be times when your focus starts to fade. Perhaps you’ve had to move your goalposts a number of times, or you failed to meet a target. It’s important to remember that business tends to ebb and flow. Instead of being dishearten, dust yourself off and remind yourself why you started on this journey in the first place.
Finally, we’ve compiled some goal ideas in the below list to help inspire your goal setting for 2019 and beyond.
- Learning something new
- Joining a networking group
- Giving back to the community
- Scheduling time for yourself
- Setting boundaries by switching off devices and notifications
- Increasing profit
- Decreasing expenses
