Last week I touched on goals of homeownership, but how do you make that happen? How do you achieve your goals?
Regardless of the goal your level of committment is paramount. Making sure that your goal is motivating is a great way to keep the fires of ambition burning. Try writing down why it's valuable and important to you. Ask yourself, "If I were to share my goal with others, what would I tell them to convince them it was a worthwhile goal?" You can use this motivating value statement to help you if you start to doubt yourself or lose confidence in your ability to actually make the goal happen. Take the time to be your own cheerleader.
Make sure to frame your goal statement positively. If you want to improve your retention rates say, "I will hold on to all existing employees for the next quarter" rather than "I will reduce employee turnover." The first one is motivating; the second one still has a way to get-out out of the committment "allowing" you to succeed even if some employees leave. Don't let the way you phrase your goal defeat you.
If you use a To-Do List, make yourself a To-Do List template that has your goals at the top of it everyday. Make these goals a permanent fixture of the beginning of your day.
Goal setting is much more than simply saying you want something to happen. Unless you clearly define exactly what you want and understand why you want it the first place, your odds of success are considerably reduced. By taking the time to commit to your goal, you can set goals with confidence and enjoy the satisfaction that comes along with knowing you achieved what you set out to do.
