If you are clear on why you’re producing, you will succeed. Success happens the goals are clear, precise, and are attached to an action plan. If you don’t have an action plan, you’ll fail.
One of the biggest reasons why projects fail is a lack of clarity. When you’re vision is clear, you can see the steps you need to take. When your vision isn’t clear, you’ll take small steps. (The same is true in life). Goals give you clarity of purpose.
- Are written down
- Have an end date
- Have obstacles that have been identified and there is a plan in place in overcoming them
- Have identified those who can help you progress
- Are Attached to an action plan
You see how specific this list is? Follow these rules when it comes to setting goals and you will be successful.
By the way, I didn’t write these goals. Another man, by the name of Zig Zigler wrote these. I simply follow them.
