It’s been a busy week, but I wanted to take a moment to give you all an update….I was ill last week and wasn’t able to get much done. So this week I’m not only playing catch-up at my day job but also trying to get back on track as Business Owner.
I’ve started writing my goals down I want to accomplish for the week on Sunday evenings. It’s a list of 5-7 items that you MUST complete by the end of the week. You can take it a step further and then divide it into daily goals if you like. This works for business and personal goals.
I’ve completed 4 out of 6 of the items on my goal list but will have them all completed by Sunday evening when I sit down to write the following week’s goals.
Be sure to make you goals powerful by making them S.M.A.R.T.
- S – Specific (or Significant).
- M – Measurable (or Meaningful).
- A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented).
- R – Relevant (or Rewarding).
- T – Time-bound (or Trackable).
For example, instead of having “file for a Fictitious of Doing Business As (DBA) name” as a goal, it’s more powerful to say, “File Fictitious or Doing Business As (DBA)name with the County Recorder’s office by November 10, 2013.”
Feel free to comment below with some things you do to keep you on track when it comes to planning your week.
