Step one – Take your time to test your choicesBusiness targets or personal goals need to be thought out carefully. Take your time and keep your feet on the ground with a clear connection to reality as you work out what you want to achieve and be sure it’s what you really do want! Doubling your turnover or bringing out four new product lines might seem appealing but do you have the energy and the cash to achieve this? Whatever you put out as your vision of what you want will be matched as long as it does you no harm and as long as it’s done fearlessly. Make sure it sounds right and comes from confidence; check that it is your personal choice and not a goal that you feel you ought to be chasing; does it ring true when you share your plan with a supportive staff member or friend. Once passing these tests, you can take business targets forward.
Step two – Put pen to paperWrite down, draw a sketch or set out a spreadsheet showing your business targets. Own it and visualise yourself achieving it. Putting your thoughts onto paper brings your dream one step further into reality and will anchor your plans into the dimension of action and activity rather than dreams and wannabe thoughts.
