Tuesday is finally here! Today I’m going to write about how to plan your goals! Did you do your homework from last week? You can find it HERE.

 3. ingredient: PLANNING

 If you did not read my last article, let me ask you again:

Do you know what you want to achieve in your career?
Do you know how to get there?

If you answered NO to either of the questions, then it is unlikely you are going to succeed.

Dont panic! This is easily rectified.

One of the main reasons why people don’t get where they want to be in their career is because they don’t plan any goals.

Without goals we are destined to go through our working life like machines, doing the same thing day in, day out.

Goal planning is important!

In business, goals are planned out to decide on the best course of action to take in order to be successful. This concept is just as valid for personal success in your job. By planning personal goals you have something to work towards. Setting clear end goals raises your enthusiasm, motivates you more, increases productivity, and makes your job more rewarding.

How to plan your goals?

The most important factor here is that your goals must be achievable.
Setting unachievable goals will only result in dissapointment and lowering your enthusiasm. They should be short, simple, and relevant.

  •  First, decide on what you want to achieve over the space of a year.
  • Next, break this down into manageable chunks which can be spread over months, or possibly weeks.
  • These smaller goals will enable you to monitor your progress much better, and at the same time keep you motivated.

 Regular monitoring is essential!

Once your goals are planned out, it is important that you monitor them on a regular basis.  There is no point in starting the process if you are going to forget about them. Put your plan somewhere where it can be seen. Set yourself deadlines to ensure that you follow a schedule. Modify your plan if you don’t achieve your monthly objective. Get back on track the following month.

You need to be committed for your plan to succeed!

All you need is LUCK!                                                                   

Leaving your personal sucess to chance is most often unrewarding.
LUCK, however, is key to success.

Labour Under Correct Knowledge is the concept of knowing the stage in your career you are currently at, knowing where you want to be, having a plan on how to get there, and the mentality to work hard putting your plan into action.

Keep in mind that the things we hope to achieve in business very rarely just happen. They take careful planning, a positive attitude, and dedication to see them through. By following these guidelines, you will be on the road to a successful and fulfilling career.

Stay tuned! On Thursday we are going to talk about the next important ingredient.
