2013 Is Here, Are you and your business ready for it?

Short Term Goals

Yet another new year has arrived and the old one gone, never to return. Time flies and one big question that needs to be asked is this… have you done enough for your business last year? If you did well last year, what do you plan to do for your business this year? If you didn’t do too well on the previous year, what should you do now to make a difference?

2013 Is Here, Are you and your business ready for it?The best thing you can do right now is to set your goals and make sure that you set them right. So how then should one set their goals? Because we’ve all been there where we are very energetic, motivated and excited when the new year arrives and then the energy dies down after just a mere few week.

The thing is, this happens to almost everyone. Of course some ‘extraordinary people’ with natural talents might not suffer from this problem but chances are you and I are just the same, and we have to face this every year.

If you go about and ask around the people you know if they still remember what their short term goals were for last year, most people will have to stop and think about it before giving you an answer while still scratching on their head filled with doubt. This is because most people forget their short term goals easily after a short amount of time.

Here are some ways to help you achieve your short term goals.

Know your short term goals.

Firstly, before setting your short term goals you must know the time frame of your goals. There are long-term goals, medium term goals and short-term goals. For long-term goals, you will usually set it inside your brains, and that is more than enough. For example, your long-term goal could be to make a lot of money so that you can buy a new house at your dream destination. This kind of goal is usually very hard to forget because ultimately this is where you want them to be.

It is, however, important that you have a clear long-term goal first before you can start setting your mid-term goals and short term ones. Only when you know clear what you want can you go about and set your mid-term and short-term goals.

Mid-term goals are usually goals which you look to achieve every year and short-term goals should be goals you look to achieve every 3 months or less. This way, you can slowly pinpoint your way to success.

Your goals have to be crystal clear.

So now you know you want to earn a lot of money. How much money do you need? How soon do you want to get there? These are all the questions we should ask when you’re setting your goals. You must include as many details as possible, and you have to be crystal clear of what you want. Some experts will even encourage you to visualize it in your mind or create a picture of your main goal with all the details that you can think of. This is very effective to help you get a clear picture of what you want.

Your goals have to be realistic.

It is very important to have a realistic goal that you can shoot for. This means your goal must not be too ridiculous that you will not believe that you can actually achieve it. You need to set a reasonable goal that you think you can achieve within a set time frame that you think is possible.

When you believe in your heart that it is actually possible to make it happen, that’s when you are able to follow your plans carefully and get yourself towards your goals one step at a time. Without a strong faith, you will find yourself discouraged and easily forgetting what is important to you. No one can ever hope to accomplish their goals if they were not passionate about it, and if they could not believe that they could achieve it. People will just give up too easily without a goal that they can believe in.

Your goals need to be step by step.

Now we move into those midterm and short-term goals. Your midterm goals should be mini goals that you set to ultimately move you closer to your main goals every year. Your short-term goals are your plans on how you want to achieve your yearly goals. This way, you can move step by step towards your goals every year in an organized manner.

Always write down your goals and place it where you can see it.

In the beginning of this article, I mentioned that one of the main reasons that people fail with their goals is because we forget our goals too easily. The one way to prevent ourselves from forgetting our goals is to write them down and make it official. The next thing you should do is to put it up where you can read them every day. This is important because our brain needs to be constantly reminded on what is important to us if we want our body to listen to the brain.

If you set your goals right and take a vow to do anything within your power to achieve it, and then go ahead and take massive actions, then there is no reason why you will not be able to success in achieving your goals. Always remember that the rule of goal setting is that you need to be clear with what you wanted, make sure that is achievable and believe in it.

Lastly, try your best to list out the small steps that you need to take each day to move closer to your goals. Be sure to write them down and review your goals every once in a while. This way, you will never get lost, and you will never find yourself forgetting what you have set out to achieve this very year.
