Remember Short Term Goals

You business probably has a 1 year goal. Heck you might even have a 5 year goal or plan, but do you have a 3 month or a 6 month plan? A shorter term plan to build the bridges to your long goals and keep you motivated at the same time?

In setting realistic and attainable short term 3 and 6 month goals, and then giving your best to achieve them is a good motivator while you work toward your longer goals. Additionally it makes those long term goals easier to accomplish.

The setting of short term goals is not only ambitious but it makes you look at your current situation harder, looking at your stronger areas and your weaker spots with a more critical eye. Not to dwell on the negative but to build on the positive.

A short term goal could be as simple as finishing a research project or vowing to make 10 appointments to new prospects over the next month.

Even if you’re short term goals are nothing like what you really want to achieve you need to have short term goals to keep you on the right track

Larson Notes & Satire: When you are making promise to yourself be careful, don’t over promise yourself. The key is to set realistic goal that you need to stretch for but are still attainable and are in your power to achieve not an outside force.
