I have Set Goals: Now What!

See also

You have now set your goals and you are more than ready to hit the target that you have set for yourself both personally and professionally. But wait a minute! Do you know how exactly you are going to implement it? Many people are very good in planning their lives but extremely poor in executing them.

Once you have set goals for yourself you must have an implementation plan in place as well. Surely, goal setting can help you attain your goals and dreams but that does not guarantee success. This is because a plan without action is just an idea or a thought. However, if you apply the right actions to your plan you will find that the goals you set are indeed attainable and within your capacity of achieving it.

If you are determined and driven to succeed, I suggest you follow this formula: Goal + Action = Success. Below are useful steps in making your goals actionable.

1. You invested so much effort in setting up your goals; therefore use it to your advantage by being persistent in achieving each task. By diligently implementing your plans, you are moving one step closer to your dreams. It is so important that you do something everyday that moves you closer and closer to achieving your desired outcome.
2. Perform one step at a time. There is no reason to hurry and there is always truth to the saying, haste makes waste. So take it slowly but surely. By effectively and efficiently implementing one small step, you will be able to achieve bigger result without taking the risk of going back just to fix fragmented tasks.
3. It is necessary to continuously examine your plans and make some changes when necessary. Check your progress so that you will be able to see what is lacking and address it right away. Each month, do an assessment of your past performance and make useful improvements as you progress in completing your goals.
4. Keep your focus and avoid any distractions. Make sure that whatever it is that you will do in a day, it will contribute something to achieving your goals. Many times people set goals, create action items and endeavor to complete numerous tasks in one day. One must set a realistic schedule of completing a minimum 3 important task per day, no more than 5 and put your FOCUS on completing those successfully.

If you find that you are struggling with implementing your goals, you may want to re-evaluate them and make sure that they are truly the things you desire to accomplish and are moving you toward living your PASSION, Out Loud! If you need help or accountability, simple ask someone who has accomplished what you are seeking for guidance and/or support. No man is an island and we all need someone to help us along the way.

It is time to stop talking about what you are going to do and start doing it.
