Successful Business Goal Setting for 2010

Creating clear doable goals for your business will help you achieve success for 2010.
Have a clear purpose, then be passionate and persistent about it until it is achieved.

7 Steps for Achieving Your Business Goals for 2010

  1. Create goals that are doable, action oriented and achievable. Where do you want your business to be by the end of 2010? By the end of December 2010 you want to look back at say that you successfully accomplished all your goals. This will not only make you feel proud but will give you a great sense of accomplishment and also boost your confidence.
  2. Write down your goals on paper – This makes your goals more substantial instead of having them floating around aimlessly in your head. Place this paper near your computer or somewhere where you will look at it every day or at least once a week. This will ensure you are on the right track.
  3. Write goals in the present tense i.e. “I will write, publish and market an e-book by the end of July”. This kind of positive affirmation gives you a definite determination that will help attract the people, places, and situations you need to achieve that goal.
  4. Picture yourself achieving these goals. Create a perfect picture of your goals and refer to it often. This adds a visual impact to achieving your desired goal.
  5. Break down your goals into simple steps – you need to create simple steps on how you will achieve your goals. You could even create a flexible timeline when you plan on completing each goal.
  6. Take action – setting goals is worth nothing if you don’t take action, so don’t procrastinate. Most people fail in this area because they get so overwhelmed with either the number of goals they set, the size of them, or paralysis from analysis. Don’t over analyze each goal so it paralyzes you from taking action.
  7. Surround yourself with like minded people – talk to other people who are upbeat and positive about achieving their own goals as well as yours.

Your goal setting for 2010 can truly be successful if you establish a clear purpose for fulfilling them, being passionate about them, persevering until they are accomplished and taking action daily.
