Creating goals for your business is one of the most important things you can do to reach success. If you try to keep them in your head, you’re bound to forget them and that’s not what you need or want with your business. The best thing to do is write them down, but if you don’t do it the right way they aren’t going to do you any good.
Detailed goals are what you need, but if you don’t know the steps you need to follow to reach them, you’re not going to go anywhere. So the best thing to do is to create a goal map that shows you everything you need. It’ll take time to create this map, but it’ll be worth it in the long run because you’ll know exactly what to do and you’ll reach your goals.
There are many ways to create a goal map and you’re sure to find one that’ll work for you. One way is to use a program that’ll help you create it and then you can view it on the computer or print it out. Another option is to create it yourself with a pen or pencil. Either way, you’ll come up with the same thing because the information will be the same. Here are a few suggestions to help you create a goal map to help you reach success.
The first thing you need to do is come up with your main goal. That’s the one that all the small goals will lead to. An example of a main goal would be a specific amount of money you want to make at the end of the year. Put this in a circle at the very top of your paper. Color in the circle with your favorite color or a color that represents your goal. If your goal is money you may want the color to be green. It’s your choice, but make sure you have the ability to read the goal.
Next, you need to come up with the next level of goals. These are the things you’ll need to do to reach that main goal. Going with the main goal above, some of smaller goals would be marketing, parties or classes to show what you do, and adding to your business. These goals are based on your specific business, so it’s going to be different for everyone.
After you come up with the smaller goals, you need to go step by step and decide what it’s going to take on a monthly basis to reach each of these goals. Once your monthly goals are established, it’s time to do weekly and daily goals. Once these steps are decided, you need to add these to your map and put them in squares.
This map will show you exactly what you need to do to reach your ultimate goal. You’ll see what you need to do and you’ll find it’ll be easier to know what you have to do and you’ll do it. Your goals will be reached and your business will grow and reach success.© Copyright 2013 Sophie Zollmann
