What will you achieve in 2020? Do you have clearly defined goals and plans to achieve your goals? I am constantly reminded of the famous Harvard Business School study that showed that the 3% of people who had written goals and plans to achieve them made up approximately 90% of the wealth of the group. Coincidence? I don’t think so. You see, the clearer you can become on what you want to achieve and how you are going to achieve this the easier it becomes to make your goals become your reality.
Why is this?
We are goal-seeking creatures. We are constantly setting goals and finding ways to achieve those goals. However, most people do this by accident. So, they stumble through life hoping that they will someday achieve what it is they desire. However, when you have clearly written goals and plans to achieve them, your subconscious goes to work to find the ways, means and/or people required to help and support you along your pursuit.
Now many business owners I meet do have some form of goals and plans but in my opinion, these are often short-sighted and don’t look at the complete picture. You need to ensure your business goals are aligned with your life goals. Otherwise, you will have an amazing business and no life. After all, why did you get into business in the first place?
For most, it was for greater freedom and a better life.
