Breaking Down Your Goals

Now that you have your year and month goals, break them down even further into weekly and daily to-dos.

Sometimes thinking of big goals stops me in my tracks. Not in the energy sense– if the goal matches who you are and what you love, thinking about it will bring a lot of excitement and spark.  It’s immobilizing in the sense that you don’t know where to begin and what to do now.

My example: I want to make $4,000 a month.  This sounds amazingly great and I love this goal.  But in the here and now, how would I get there?  Break it down! What avenues can get me the money?  What skills do I need to learn now/activities do I need to do now to achieve this amount each month?

Today, my breakdown’s allowed me to move closer to my goal: 15 cold calls, Craigslist ads, Constant Contact send outs and a couple emails.

How can you breakdown your goals today?

One response to “Breaking Down Your Goals

  1. Setting goals are extremely important, but just as important is acting upon them. When you have your goals broken down into achievable steps, make sure you hold yourself accountable.

    An excellent way to do this is to have a large calendar that you can write a big “X” in when you have completed the steps for that day. Each day you finish, it will add another link to the chain of exes. The idea here is to make that chain as long as possible without any breaks in it.

    Remember: successful people follow the guide of “ready, aim, FIRE” rather than “ready, aim, aim, aim, aim…”
