Here we are... 2021 is almost here. Are you ready to CRUSH your goals?
We have all tried to set New Years goals/resolutions and what has happened?
- You started of the year strong but before you even realized what happened...
- Your exercise went by the wayside.
- You aren't being consistent with your business activites.
- Your diet went back to what it was before in fact now that the holidays are over you have gained weight...
- Finiancially you have not made any progress
- You realize that your life is what it was in 2020.
All high achievers track what they are doing because they know that what they focus on grows.
What are you going to do to change your results?
Are you looking to start your online business, lose weight, run a marathon?
What are you doing to track your progress?
How do you know if you are doing the daily tasks needed for suceess.
Is you goal crystal clear
Have you set up tasks so that you are consistently working towards your goal?
I have come across something that will help you achieve what you want in 2021.
The program that I have found will help you create your plan with easy to modify templates and action plans.
It will give you the opportunity to create your vision board so what you desire is always there in front of you.
Journal to track you actions and gratitudes, what you have learned on your journey so far...
Access to an app for android and apple so you can easily make modifications while you are on the go.
Track your progress with the habit tracker. Are you doing what you set out to do?
Easily modify the calendar and change the due dates. Sync your tasks with your favorite calandar.
Help you set SMART goals and action plans... more on this later.
Build habits , journal and visualize.
You can set the timing on your actions. Do some tasks need to be done daily/weekly/monthly?
This program is safe and secure.
There is a 30 day money back guarantee...so you have nothing to loose. If you are not happy with it just get a refund before the 30 days.
What about all of those other productivity apps and programs?
Now I have tried a lot of the other productivity software and apps. One thing that I have found is that none of them do what I want them to do.
Even if I upgrade there is still so much modification needed in order to have something that will work for me. I am tired of spending so much time trying to get something that will sort of work for me.
I have found a goal tracking software that already has templates ready to use that will help you organize and break down your goals into manageable steps and actions.
I don't know about you but I am not a programer. When I upgrade in those other apps it seems that all I get are more color options. They are also mostly set up for entrepreneurs that have virual assistants or teams of people who are all working on the same project.
So if you have a team that you are working with and want to track their progress then one of those other programs may be a good option for you.
I am a solopreneur and at this point in my business I am working by myself. I do not need to track the work of a number of other people. I only want to track what I have control over...MYSELF!
Over the years I have heard so many times that the people who set goals are more successful. Things happen when you track your actions and your results. Start with where you want to be at the end of this new year and work your way backward and break it into managable chunks.
We have all heard the phrase: "How do you eat an elephant?"
What are your reasons?
One of the big reasons why I decided to start my online business is to create more time and finiancial freedom. I wanted to have a finiancial "safety net". I always thought that my job was relatively secure.
One thing that 2020 and COVID has brought to my attention is that nothing is secure. So many people have lost their jobs or had their hours cut. We are all looking for ways to suppliment our income.
More and more people are looking to start an online business for the same reason that I did. You may want more financial security, a buffer or actually replace you income so you are not dependent on anyone else.
I really hate that my whole financial future is in the hands of someone else. If my boss has a bad day he could decide at anytime to do away with my positon/job.
Is your goal something you want and are you really motivated to get it?
So many people just have a vague idea of what they want. Be specific. The more specific the better.
The bigger the goal the more consistent and persistent you will need to be to attain it. Most people want to earn more from their side hustle than they are currently making in their current job.
The issue is that they only want to put in a quarter of the effort. What is wrong with this picture?
If you only have a small amount of time to work on your side hustle then modify your goals to reflect that, otherwise you will end out beating yourself up, get discouraged and quit. Creating SMART goals will really help you a lot.
What is a SMART goal?
Creating good SMART goals is going to take you a little bit of time and thought. The more precise and specific you are the better. Add dates and times that you want to achieve certain things.
What actions are you going to do to achieve your mini goals along the way? Can they be measured?
T: time bound
EXAMPLE: You want to write a book by the end of 2021.
I write a 500 page book by Dec 31 2021, by writing 2 pages a day over the next 9 months. The last 3 months will be spent editing the book so that it is ready for publication by 12/31/21. This is very specific.
This statement is time bound and achievable although it may take work depending on your schedule. This can also be measured. Did you write the 2 pages or not?
So...you want to crush your goals in this new year!
I highly recommend taking some time over this week and really sit down and think about what you want. Really visualize it with lot of detail and emotion. The more emotion you feel about something the more likely it will come about.
If you are taking a road trip you have your destination in mind. You plan your route, where you are going to stop, how long it will take you to get there, you are excited about the trip etc...
Why do people forget to do this when it relates to business?
Specifically their own business. If you think of it as a side-hustle you may not give it the serious attention that it needs in order to grow.
Its a side-hustle...I can do it later. Then before you know it later becomes the following year. Don't let this be you...
Get started now and start moving towards what you want. The name of the program is called: Goals On Track
Hold yourselft accountable. You are responsible for your actions and your thoughts. Take control and start with a plan. Develop the habits that you need to attain your goals in 2021.
How much work will it take to succeed?
It is so easy to under estimate how much work will be needed to succeed. I know that I have run across this. When I first started my online business I thought that it was going to be so easy.
So many of the gurus put out content indicating success in weeks. Maybe they have forgotten how much work it took to get where they are.
No matter what business you have if you are just starting there are things/principles that you will need to learn to be successful.
I have mentioned in previous posts what a great business model affiliate marketing is...
When I first started, I thought that success was eminent. Well... after a couple of years of jumping around and "trying" different products, not being consistent in my actions I have discovered a couple of things.
1: I need to focus.
2: It is going to take me longer to reach my goal than I first thought.
I am not tech wizard and I did not realize how much there was to learn. I was vague in what I wanted and I did not set a specfic action plan as to how I was going to learn and achieve what I needed to in order to gain success.
Don't let this be you... Learn from my mistakes.
