|What Is Your WHY?
VISIT WEBSITE (learn more)
What is your WHY? Do not spend too much time on HOW you are going to accomplish things unless you are very clear on WHY it is important to succeed in obtaining your goals.
Here are two excellent resources for clarifying the WHY aspect of what motivates us:
The Common Denominator of Success! - Mr. Albert E. N. Gray ==> www.ibourl.com/j1v
Taking Action! - Tony Robbins, Frank Kern, John Reese ==> www.ibourl.com/j1v
There are inevitable peaks and valley as well as rough patches on the path we all travel to reach our desired destinations. Knowing why it is important to keep moving toward that destination can help us in those moments when we must make a detour or even back track in order to navigate around some unforeseen obstacle.
Keep your WHY in mind as we talk about the creation of S.M.A.R.T. goals.
Properly constructed goal allow for outcome management.
A S.M.A.R.T. goal is a means of keeping score.
We can expound on each of those ingredients, so let's get started with the SPECIFIC aspect.
Most of us would not head off on a journey without having a destination in mind. Wandering around aimlessly is usually a good definition of BEING LOST. So being specific about where we are going allows us to map it out. We may intentionally take a scenic route at times or we may build in enough flexibility to linger longer in certain areas, yet we know we are heading.
Your business plan should be similar in design to a well planned trip. What is it going to cost, how long is it going to take, who is going with us, etc. Many people naturally make TO DO lists for what to pack or what they want to see on a trip, so why not apply that same skill set to the specifics of building a business?
Most Fortune 500 companies will structure the core objective(s) of the purpose for the existence of the enterprise as a MISSION STATEMENT and then possibly reduce it even more succinctly into a SLOGAN ... how clear can YOU state your reason for being in business?
Onward and upward!
