Clarity is the most important trait that must be found in any type of success. Those who know what they want in their lives and are very aware of who they are, are successful. In addition, successful people write down actions that they make every day to achieve their goals.
There are questions that you need to think about when you set goals for yourself and your business:
1. What are complications and difficulties that rise between you and the accomplishment of your goals? Why haven’t you achieved your goal already? What is stopping you? What blocks your way? What issue do you need to solve and what obstacles do you have to overcome to accomplish your goal eventually?
Among all the problems that you should solve, which ones from the 20% of the majority of the issues stand between you and your goal?
2. What are the extra skills, data and knowledge are needed to accomplish a goal or a project? Remember that no matter what you did to get to where you are today is not enough to take you any further. Where can you learn these new skills that need? Is it possible to buy them or hire someone qualified? Is it needed that you acquire new skills and improve them? What data is essential to take the right decisions?
3. Among people, groups or organizations who is a better fit to help you and cooperate with you to achieve your goal. Sometimes a person provides you with new ideas and open doors for you for a faster accomplishment. For this reason, businesspeople go through deals and strategic partnerships with their opponents in order to sell their products and services to other’s customers that each of them does not usually offer.
4. Ask who can help you to achieve your goal? What can you offer that person in return for his cooperation and help in accelerating the achievement?
People who made detailed plans of action before they started were able to accomplish the most successful business projects in the world. Write down your personal plan and your business plan then make sure to follow it thoroughly until you succeed.
