It is the end of the first quarter – the first three months – of 2018. Let’s warm up with a little talk about time.
One of the great equalizers is time.
No matter who you are, where you are from, where you live, how educated you are, how much money you have, how connected you are, what title you have, how many trophies you have, EVERYONE has the same amount of:
IN EACH DAY.
The difference maker is clearly something else.
It is what you do with your time.
It is what you choose to spend your time on.
It is how you leverage yourself to optimize your time.
For the faithful subscribers reading here keep an eye out for the April call on time – on getting more done each day. What are the results you have in your business, your personal life and your career for the first three months of this year?
In theory you have previously set goals for the year and goals for each month of the year in at least each of these three categories.
Maybe you have other categories as well such as:
- Personal Development
The list is yours. If you have not set goals for the year you should right now. For everyone who has set goals what are the results to date?
For each area of goal setting –
If you are exceeding your goals – Well Done! Keep it up.
If you are meeting your goals – great! Did you set your goals too low?
Think about revisiting your goals and see if you might stretch a little.
If you are not meeting your goals – why not? Were the goals set too high? Are there reasons which need to be addressed – altered in some way? Do the goals need to be reset or is it the way things are being done which need to be changed?
Here are a few tips on goal setting and results to either keep the momentum going or to create some momentum.
- Form an accountability group or at the very least one person who will hold you accountable to your goals.
- Share your goals with those in #1 and either meet in person or speak with each other specifically about your goals and where you are on performance and results on a regular basis. This might be one time a week or every two weeks for example.
- Each goal must be set utilizing the S.M.A.R.T. method of goal setting. Specific – Measurable – Attainable – Relevant – Time Bound
When this method is not utilized you are not setting a goal.
In summary, this is one of those articles to print out or save somewhere to remind you to take action and follow the steps provided. Feel free to write in the comments area or my Facebook page your goals and allow me to see how you are doing.
