TODAY ON THE PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT S.M.A.R.T. GOALS AND WHY THEY ARE SO IMPORTANT TO YOUR BUSINESS.
So what is a S.M.A.R.T. Goal?
These are focused targets for your business. They have a clear aim and direction.
S - specific
M - measurable
A - attainable
R - relevant
T - time-framed (dead-lined)
For example; I aim to increase my email list by 100 new subscribers this month.
It's a very business-speak term, but the actual act of creating these goals is highly important, because they help you to focus all of your efforts in moving your business in one smooth direction to your dream business.
Why do we need them?
Without S.M.A.R.T. Goals we often try too many things that we hope will move our business forward. It's a tactic that never works and leaves us feeling deflated.
You know that feeling? Like you are going around the houses.
It’s perfectly natural to feel it.
I, myself struggled for the longest time feeling like I had no idea how to get to where I needed my business to be. It's only when I started setting these goals as part of a larger goal plan that I really discovered the easier path. Now I teach it!
If you watch the video you can see that swirly path of non-focus and non-achievement.
