The Top 3 Goal Making Mistakes to AVOID

Sep 21, 2020

September is busy at the best of times with school and work starting post summer-holidays, but this year, we also have a global pandemic to add to the mix!  Not only do you need to buy new shoes, masks and stationery (I'm not even talking about the kids now ­čśé), but there are wardrobes to be rearranged, doctor appointments to make and oh yeah, a business to run!  I know you're busy and I know you have your hands full spinning 10 different plates at the same time. I hear you, I do too.


Here’s the question though: How do you get through times like this without feeling overwhelmed?


Here’s the answer: With a clear understanding of your priorities and where you need to focus your energy. Going further, you then need to turn those priorities into a set of actionable, achievable and trackable goals that will provide you with direction, focus and a path to follow towards more money and a life that is happy, satisfied and fulfilled.


Sounds good, but not so easy to do, right?


Here’s a fact: MOST people struggle with sorting through the millions of things they have to do to create goals that are actionable, trackable and generate results.  


But there is a good reason why they fall short...and the reason they fail can be the reason you succeed.  It’s because they set goals before knowing what direction they really want to go, creating vague, unachievable or poorly framed intentions that don’t drive big business results.


They end up running out of motivation and excitement to do the work that needs to get done because they neglect the most important part… tying their goals into their passion, their why. I call this the Secret Sauce That Makes Work Fun (you can read more about that here).


I like to think of this Secret Sauce as a life hack to get you the motivation and focus you need so that you do the right work that leads to those big results.  


Right now, I want to give you a friendly warning! Once you identify your passion and align it to your objectives, there are 3 mistakes you MUST avoid in order to create goals that will really move your business forward.


Mistake #1 

Creating goals that are so out of reach that you have no hope of achieving them. Nothing is more demoralizing, and it will make you more likely to quit before you’ve even started.

The important thing to remember here is to push yourself out of your comfort zone while staying realistic!


Mistake #2 

Establishing goals that are so vague that it is not clear what you are trying to accomplish. The narrower your goal, the more you’ll understand the steps necessary to achieve it.

For example, instead of saying, “My goal is to find a new job,” you can change it to “I plan to change careers and become a digital coach by December 31st.”  


Mistake #3 

Setting goals without tracking your progress or reviewing your results.

Assessing progress helps you to stay focused, meet your deadlines, and feel the excitement of getting closer to achieving your goal.

Reviewing results not only allows you to course adjust but also enables you to celebrate your wins – and you so deserve that!


These are the Top 3 Mistakes to AVOID when setting your goals, but before you even get to that, you need to be crystal clear on what to focus on so that you can create goals that produce results.


That means sifting through all the competing ideas in your head and the enticing shiny objects like email nurture sequences and Facebook advertising that keep you from knowing exactly where to put your focus and your time.
