Goal Setting is a process or strategy of setting goals to help you choose where you want to be in life, who you want to be and precisely what you want to achieve in the certain amount of time with a solid direction and your desired outcome in mind.
The biggest challenge most people face when setting goals is simply setting too many goals.
This leads to feelings of overwhelm from the start and usually leads to giving up on them relatively quickly.
Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future. Motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into a reality. I searched for tips from some of the well known people in marketing online to help with this strategy.

“I always set goals and objectives before the end of the year.” – Dr. Misner.
I set three levels of goals.
#1. A high goal that I can shoot for – if everything goes perfectly, and the low goal if everything went terribly wrong. Then the target goal, a number goal.
#2. Reverse engineer your goals – in 3 mths where will you be? 6mth to 9 and 12 mths.
#3. Monthly work out what you need to hit your target.
Action is part of attraction, use bullet point action steps to specifically hit your target.
Have it all planned out before the year starts. Set yourself up for Success in 2017.
Setting Your Business Goals – The Rule of 3 -Marketer Jo Barnes
“We’ve all heard how important goal setting is right?
With 2017 almost upon us , we’re all set to reflect on the past Year, and set our intentions and goals for the year ahead.” – Jo Barnes
What is your Big Picture? Have a very clear picture of what you want your business to look like in a year, 5 years even 10 years.
List 3 Specific Goals for the next 12 mths
Written in present tense such as:
1. I am earning $5,000 a mth
2. I have 5,000 people on my customer email list
3. I get 5,000 hits a mth on my blog
1. I must sell 16 products a day at $99 or 32 products at $49.50 or 8 at $199 etc
2. I must get 137 people a day onto my email list
3. I must get 1650 hits a day on my blog
Take the 3 measurable goals and add them to a calendar or spreadsheet to look at every day on your computer or on the wall in front of your desk.
Take a day every week to reflect on the actions taken that week and what you need to do next week to get closer to your goal numbers.
So many people live in hope that the new year will be their best yet, but many of them simply fail to plan for it. I stopped making new years resolutions, instead, I start goal setting before the end of the old year.
Business goals are goal setting, something that you write down and then get very clear about what you need to do to achieve them. All the best to you and your strategy goal setting in the new year.
