You’re not alone. And fortunately, you’re nota lost cause either.As a business owner, I found that keeping things clear and simple is the best way to tackle even my most lofty goals Breakingyour goals down into a few key elements could be the difference between all talk and all action.One way to remember these key elements is to think of your goals as SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant,and Time-bound.Let’s take a look at what each of these elements mean, and how you can apply them to better set and reach your goals…1. SpecificYou’re much more likely to achieve a goal if you get specific. But most people don’t realize how vague their goals actuallyare. Take a look at this example:I want to start using online marketing to promote my business.It sounds specific enough, but do a little digging, and you’ll find there’s a lot more to “online marketing” than meets the eye(as you likely know). In fact, the overwhelming online marketing options we have these days is what keeps many peopleparalyzed. So, start breaking it down by talking yourself through the process required, step-by-step…You could ask yourself these questions:
  • 2. June 10th, 2013 Published by: carrielorentz2To start out, do I want to do an ezine, email marketing, or social media?How often do I want to send out an ezine, email blast, or tweet?Specific goal setting will not only give you clarity of what’s required, but it will also make it less daunting because you havea specific area to focus on.2. MeasurableEstablish concrete criteria so you can evaluate your goal setting progress as you go. Break your big goal down into smalltargets that you can track.Using our example from above, you could decide that you will tweet once a day on Twitter, post a status update once a dayon Facebook, and send out one ezine every other week. Now, you’ve got a set item that you can add to your to-do list, justlike you would any other task—and you can cross it off your list as “done”. Your goal is now in action.3. AttainableYou want your goal to be a challenge, but also one that you truly believe is possible to achieve. Don’t say you’re going to writea book this summer if you know you’ve got speaking engagements every other week. When using SMART goal setting picksomething reasonable that you could really see yourself achieving.Can you see yourself writing 250 words a day or 5 pages a week? If you know you can do it, and you start meeting your quota,you’ll notice that you’ll gain momentum. Goals that once seemed out of your reach become attainable, and you’ll grow andexpand to match them.4. RelevantYour goals should feed into your main purpose, so you must get in touch with the underlying purpose tied to your goal.For example, if you want to grow your client list, your priority will be to spread the word. In this case, you’d want to use yourezine, social media, etc. to reach out to new prospects that are in your ideal target market.Make sure you review your goals on a regular basis—at least once a month. That way you can track your progress, and ensureyou’re actions are in line with your vision.5. Time-boundSet a deadline for you to achieve your goal. It will give you a sense of urgency and also help you keep things in perspectivein real time. For example, you want to grow your list by 2,000 people by September 30, 2011. This way, you go from havinga “someday” kind of plan to having a concrete guide for the months ahead.==========“Entrepreneur mentor Ali Brown teaches women around the world how to start and grow a profitable business that makea positive impact.
