New Year, New Decade

Updated: Jan 11, 2020




New Year, New Decade


We’ve all been guilty of it: breaking our New Year’s resolutions.

But this time we swear it is different.


Forget the ‘lose 10 pounds goal.’ I’d love for each and every one of you to set a business related goal and/or financial related goal. But how can the results be different if we don’t DO anything differently? To ensure your goals are concise and attainable, each goal should be:


Specific


Who is involved?

What do I want to accomplish?

Where is it located?

Which resources are involved?

Why is this goal important?


Example: My goal is for this newsletter to reach 1,000 subscribers by the end of the year so that I can help as many people as possible to save in taxes and help them achieve their financial and business goals.


Measurable - track and assess progress


How much?

How many?

How will I know when goal is achieved?


Example: 1,000 subscribers by year-end.


Achievable


How can I accomplish this goal?

How realistic is the goal?


Example: I can achieve this goal by asking for referrals, going to networking events, and reaching out to my ideal clients. It is a stretch but realistic - everyone knows a business owner that can use some tax strategy.

Relevant


Does it seem worthwhile?

Is it the right time?

Does this match our other efforts/needs?

Am I the right person to reach this goal?


Example: It is definitely worthwhile if I can help just one person. The time is now and the goal is based on my efforts.

Time-based


When?

What can I do today?

What can I do this week?

What can I do this year?

Example: My goal is for the year but I can break that down into how many new subscribers I need each week in order to reach my goal.


Want to help me with my goal? The easiest way is to share my Facebook page or Instagram.

Comment below with one of your business/finance goals so that I can help keep you accountable! Let this be the year we are NOT breaking a promise to ourselves.
