Six Ways Of Achieving Business Goals

Author : Nick P

New Year celebration means more new resolutions on the platter. There’s virtually no end to planning and hoping things for the year ahead. Many people will set their goals such as faster job promotion, a salary hike; spend more time with their families etc. It’s good deal fun setting goals for the New Year, but how many of us really care to see them through? How many of us ever actually achieve those goals? They are not that encouraging figure. Have you wondered why most people fail to do that! One of the reasons can be lack of foresight. They do not set realistic and clear goals. The second reason is most people do not take steps to achieve the goals they have set for the year.

If you have a vague goal in your mind, that gets you nowhere. It becomes almost impossible to take steps to achieve your unrealistic goals.

Follow six Key Steps – Get Better Results with Your Goals:

a. Set Goals in Numbers and Digits

Defining goals in vague and global terms makes them hard to achieve. Set the picture clear. Instead of planning a weight loss for the coming few months, set definite tasks like, losing 2 pounds per month until you reach the desired level. Defining goals in numbers and figures makes them real and easily attainable.

b. Schedule Time Limit to Achieve Goals

Goal without a timeline is nothing but a utopia. Set time frame and see if you’ve moved along the scale of accomplishment. If not, evaluate the reasons and how far off your goals seem. Time frames motivate. When you have crossed off tasks in the list, you get a taste of success, even for the time being. If you do not set a time frame to your goals, you probably end up chasing that dream for the rest of your life.

c. Goals must be Attainable

Goals must be realistic and attainable to be completed in set timeframes. Move ahead of fantasy. You may have high and mighty goals in your charter, but when you find they are not real enough to materialize, tweak your goals to fit in the accomplishment charts.

d. Follow Your Progress

Define long-term as well short-term goals in tandem. Short-term goals are landmarks and show the way to the targets – you know your exact position on the goals, seeing those short-term accomplishments. You go on striking off the temporary and weekly tasks to get to the monthly ones. Doing this helps you determine if you are progressing or lacking behind in your goals. Then you can take extra steps to speed up.

e. Allow for Obstacles

Goals without obstacles are unreal. It’s natural to face obstacles and deadlocks when you’re shaping up your goals. Don’t get upset or frustrated. Little failures lead to grand success stories. When you overcome obstacles, you feel on top of the world, a sense of satisfaction that keeps you motivated for more such tasks. Even if you did not achieve your goals, take it as a challenge for your next goal. Don’t give up.

f. Identify the Purpose of Any Goal

You set goals, because you want to get results. Goals without a purpose are not sufficient to motivate you. We all have personal reasons to set goals and substantiate them. When you want a salary hike, you must know where you’re going to spend those extra bucks.

While you follow these simple and significant steps, you can see some reason not to repeat what you’ve done the last year. You don’t skip resolutions and succeed in whatever goals you’ve put forth. New Year resolutions may sound cliché but if you follow and take steps to achieve them, you will achieve almost anything in life.
