The year 2017 so far had a lot of focus on Goals and Goal Planning. You are wasting a lot of time if you don't have your goals set. You should already have at least the first quarter of 2018 planned, also to the last quarter of 2017.
This kind of planning can be identified with those who are letting go of procrastination, and those who are bent on becoming a success. There is a Quote that I always follow from my mentor. It says, 'Successful people do daily what unsuccessful people do occasionally'. If you want to be a success, you must have your goals and dreams planned out. In addition to that, you have to decide that you are in fact a success. Nothing must stop you from achieving your goal.
I have been tested in so many ways this year. At one time, I thought that I could not make it. I was on the verge of giving up, again. One move in FAITH caused me to step out on the unknown, and since that day EVERYTHING has worked in my favor. So, my lady, never give up on your dream.
Here are some of the things I did to ensure I kept on track.
Write and re-write your goals. Things change daily, sometimes by the minute. Those changes can have an effect on what you are planning to do. Don't sweat it. Just re-write your goal to accommodate the change, or write a new one that aligns with your purpose. There is nothing wring in doing this. In fact, it totally shows that you care about what you want in life.
Read your goals aloud daily. Each day, look over your written goals. It's not enough to just think about it. Say it aloud, get it into the atmosphere, let the world hear your plan. That way, things get set in motion to get what you want to you faster. You can also put them in places you can see throughout your day.
Ensure you write SMART goals. Make sure your goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time based. This will help you be more strategic, and will give you more realistic results.
Get organized. Get one main notebook or journal where you want to keep your goals. You may want to have another book handy where you would jot down all your ideas that come to you. That would assist in achieving the goal. Ensure you have a daily/monthly planner so you can keep track of your progress. Don't forget to celebrate each win.
There are four more months in 2017. You still have time to do something great. Amazing things can be done when you purpose in your soul to be great. Start today, for tomorrow and the days that follow will go by so quickly. You will wonder where the months and years have gone, leaving you still with your dream in your mind.
Get cracking. You can do it!
