Setting and accomplishing goals isn’t easy; if it were, why wouldn’t everyone be doing it?
Today’s episode walks through the most critical steps you can follow to make it happen.
All the details of what’s included below is inside of this episode!
Before we dive in, one of the most important lesson I’ve learned is that goals are accomplished one at a time.
If you want to make progress and move forward in your business and life, then FOCUS is integral.
So before you fill your plate with way more than you can handle, resulting in massive overwhelm and zero action, take a step back and realize that any successful business has been built ONE block at a time.
How to set and accomplish your biggest goals
Here are the steps you can follow starting today to set and accomplish your biggest goals.
5 Steps of reflection
Following the 5 steps of reflection will help you choose your goal.
Remember, ONE goal at a time. Progress requires FOCUS.
Make your goal SMART
Once you’ve chosen the ONE goal you’ve focus on, it’s time to make it SMART.
Now it’s time to put a plan in place. The simplest way to do this, since you already know exactly where you want to go, is to reverse engineer your plan.
Given what you want to accomplish, what are the bigger picture tasks that need to happen?
Walk backwards into identifying the smaller steps you need to take to get there.
In The Freedom Journal, these are called 10-day Sprints. During each sprint, you work towards accomplishing ONE of your micro-goals.
Set review periods
You need to be able to track your progress towards accomplishing your number one goal.
In The Freedom Journal, this happens every 25 days.
This is a time to pause and look at:
What’s not working
Do you need to correct course?
How are you doing time-wise?
Time to leverage your “measurement” and gauge your pace! And remember, be flexible! If you need to pivot, that’s okay; that’s exactly why we set 10-day Sprints and Review Periods to help us along the way.
Hold yourself accountable
This is a critical piece of the puzzle; if you’re not actually doing the things you’ve already identified as the necessary steps to help you accomplish your ONE goal, how do you expect to get there?
It’s really easy to “let it slide”, but now is the time to step up and NOT let yourself get away with pushing deadlines, saving something for tomorrow, or getting distracted by things that aren’t contributing to you getting one step closer to accomplishing your goal.
