As a small business owner you probably wear a lot of different hats and it can be very easy to get caught up in the day-to-day details of your work and forget the bigger picture, but if you really want to achieve big things then it’s important to set goals.
Not all goals are created equal though, to make amazing progress this year you need a goal that motivates you. One that you can really get excited about, so that it stays top of mind even when life throws ten other tasks your way! Think about why you want to achieve your goal, what difference will it make to you or to the world? Imagine you had to convince someone else that your goal was a good idea, what would you say?
Once you have a goal that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning, write it down. Make it really powerful by using “I will” rather than “I aim to” and include the reason you want to achieve it. Display your goal somewhere you’ll see it everyday - pin it on the fridge, make it your screensaver or use it as a header for your to-do list. Every day you’ll look at your goal and feel motivated to get going.
Are you ready to make big things happen in 2020?
