Business Goal Planning


SMART Business Goals

There are a lot of different goal-setting methods out there, but one which has proven the most successful is the SMART method. This stands for:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Time Bound

Every business goal you set should follow the above rules. All goals should be specific and measurable. They also need to be attainable, and relevant and have a specific time frame for completion. If you follow this method, you’re likely to see excellent results.

Creating Goals


Breaking Down Your Goals

An easy way to figure out which goals to focus on in business is to break them down. If you’re struggling to come up with specific goals, then this is definitely the method you’ll want to try.

Start by writing down your main goals. These don’t need to be specific and will, in fact, more than likely be pretty vague. Then, once you have your overall goals, it’s time to break them down.

Think about what you’ll need to do in order to achieve your overall goals. Write down the smaller steps required in order to meet your overall goals. The more you break them down, the easier they will be to achieve.

Reviewing Your Goals

When it comes time to set new goals, it’s a good idea to review your old ones. What worked and what didn’t work? Did you complete the goals you set? If not, work out why not.

By reviewing your old goals, you can learn from anything that cropped up to prevent you from achieving them. This will enhance your chance of success with the new goals you set yourself.

Don’t forget to – the goals you set now should also be easily renewable. All goals are a work in progress and they often need to be tweaked in order to prove effective.

Physically Write Your Goals Down

With so much technology available at our fingertips, it’s easy to set business goals digitally. It may seem more convenient to type your goals out on the computer, but did you know you’ll have more chance of success by physically writing the goals down?

It’s a good idea to invest in a physical goal planner. If you look at the most successful business leaders in the world, you’ll find the majority use a physical goal planner to help them stay organized and connected to their goals.

Make Sure You Feel Positively About the Goals You Set

When you’re setting your goals, you’re going to need to make sure you have a positive outlook about them. That means you feel they are achievable, and they will help your business to succeed.

The more passionate you are about the goals you set, the more likely you’ll be to achieve them. Don’t make the mistake of setting a goal that involves something you hate doing. If you do, you’ll find it easy to put it off and ultimately fail to achieve the goal.

There are a lot of methods you can use when setting goals for your business. However, the ones above are definitely proven to have the most success; especially when you’re just getting started. It’s a good idea to try out a few different methods in order to see which one works better for you.
