Goal Setting for 2014

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

2013 was an interesting and intense year.  So many good things happened; so many not-so-good things happened.  My family has suffered, but we are all safe.  My job is secure; my business is working.  I would say I ended the year on a high note.

But I am not stopping there.  Absolutely not; there's so much more out there!  To that end, I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out exactly what I wanted out of this next year.  What did I want to make happen?  It's scary, really looking inside to see who I really am and what I am capable of.  It's frightening to put my goals on paper and really put them out there for the whole world to see.  What if I fail?  What if the things I am saying WILL happen, don't?  The entire world would bear witness.  Here's the thing, though:  that kind of thinking will doom me.

I decided, instead, that I would dream big, but realistically big (does that make sense?), and I would come up with a plan to meet each and every goal on my dreamboard.  But first, some accountability.  Here are the things I absolutely WILL achieve this year:

In case you can't read it, I'll break each goal down:
  1. PUSH goal - the one that scares me most but is also integral to my success.  My PUSH goal is to reach diamond status by July 13, 1014.  In order to do this, my goal is to add 1-2 coaches to my team per month.  In so doing, I also aim to help those new coaches to succeed and advance in their own businesses.  Truly, my success is due to the hard work of my team.  One person can only do so much, but a team is unstoppable!
  2. My second goal has to do with what you're reading right now.  I would like to have my posts out to you first thing in the morning instead of after work in the evenings.  To do that, I need to have at least one week of posts completed and scheduled.  Look for the timing change within the next three weeks!
  3. Organization is one of my weak spots, and that's why it deserves a central spot on this dreamboard.  My home office?  Yeah, it's a disaster.  But organization begets productivity, so that's one of my first goals to achieve!
  4. Personal development is essential to my own growth and is an area that I tend to slack on.  No more!  No more mediocrity!  Every day, this will be a priority.  Every morning I will start my day with digging into God's Word, and every evening I will spend time in various personal development books.  And the best way to get myself to follow through is simply to use my phone for reminders.
  5. Vacation is extremely important to me, but my husband is not as big on the idea.  What that means is if I want to go on vacation, I am going to have to earn enough to contribute to the "vacation fund."  And do you know how I do that?
  6. I do that by reaching another goal:  success club every single month.  Success Club is a direct reflection of the number of people I help as a coach.  And by achieving it every month, I also get rewarded.  In fact, going back to goal number 5, if I reach success club every month, I will have the opportunity to go on an all-expense-paid trip to Cancun in 2015!  How's that for a "vacation fund"?  (Contact me for more information!)
  7. Another goal of mine is to make it to Coach Summit in Las Vegas this year.  Summit is an opportunity for all coaches to get together and learn more about the business and the future of the company.  It's an amazing opportunity!
  8. My final goal is my own fitness goal.  I WILL be a size 8 by my birthday, which is May 5.  I'll have much to celebrate then!
So what are your goals for the coming year?  I'd love to hear them!  Do they scare you?  I hope so!  Remember:
