Holy cow! How is it June already? This time of the year, I like to take a few moments out of my morning routine to reflect on the first half of the year and get ready for the next 6 months. I don’t know about you but this year seems to have gone by very quickly. Maybe it was the fact that last year moved a bit slower with everything shut down but now that things are back to somewhat “normal” – time is flying by.
As we roll into the back half of the year, it is a great time to reflect on what is working and not working around your goals and intentions. One of the best indicators of success at the end of the year (whatever that looks like for you) is to take the goal(s) you have and move the target closer so the activities you are doing will get you to the goal.
For example, if you have a goal to lose 20 lbs by the end of the year, what actions do you need to do each day to make that a reality? Then just focus on that daily action. Each daily action will lead you to your goal. If you think about losing 20 lbs in a year and wait until the end of the year to make a daily (or monthly plan) you will most likely still have that 20 lbs at the end of the year when it is too late to do anything about it.
This is the same for your business goals. If you want to hit a certain revenue target, how do you break it down to a quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily goal to get you there? Look at the goal and then make it more achievable by breaking it down into smaller (daily) activities that will get you there. For example, if I want to add 100 people to my course by the end of the year, I need to add at least 9 people a month. (9*12=108). So that means that I need to be doing daily activities to attract those 9 people each month. If I am starting in month 6 (June) then I need to double that number to 18 a month. This makes it much more manageable than trying to target 100 people in December.
How about you? What are your annual goals and how are you not only reflecting on where you currently are but also making a daily plan to get to that goal NOW versus waiting?
I challenge you this week to plan out your next 6 months with this approach. What is your overall annual goal? What is needed each quarter, month, week, day to achieve that goal? What is your daily action plan to get there?
