Goals: Starting the Process

Without goals, how do we know when we succeed?

Let’s start the process of setting goals.  Think about where your business is right now and where you want it to be.

Get a pen, a pad of paper, and start writing…

Prioritize:   Identify what is important.

Focus on what:  What do you want to accomplish?

Make goals meaningful:  How will they enhance your business?

Focus on outcomes:  How will your customers benefit?

Be Inventive:  Work toward your goals within the unique character of your business.

Communicate your goals:  Let your customers know where you are going and they might even help you get there!

Now you have a general idea of the direction you want to go.

Next week, we will work on crafting our goals.  Want a hint?  They need to be SMART.
