You Don’t Need Luck
My blog and my business changed when I wrote my blogging goal. Thing is I should have known that. Setting goals is one of those life lessons that I keep learning over again.
Sometime in college, I figured out that whenever I made a goal that was tuned tightly to who I am and what I do well, it easily became a catalytic action. Goals became my way of saying …
I don’t need luck, if I can make things happen.
What I realized was that goal set As Antoine de Saint-Exupery said …
A goal without a plan is just a wish.
Every successful and outstanding business, every well-conceived campaign or action becomes an opportunity magnet with goals that are
- clear, concrete, and intentional — What will you accomplish? Why will you be doing that? Who or what will help yo?
- measurable — How will you know you got there? What will count as a good score?
- reachable — The strategy can be to get to the stars, but the goal should be the next step. What will you do to get there next?
- matched to your skill set Great goals make us stretch enough to be challenged an interested. What will will you need to learn or put in action to achieve this?
- time dependent — Place a time frame on what you’ll be accomplishing. Goals need focus and urgency to keep momentum. What is the end date?
(skills x passion) + problem solving = opportunity magnet
For a goal to be an opportunity magnet, it’s got to have some actionable attraction. Great goals use what’s uniquely our own — the strength of skills, the leverage of our situation, and the momentum of our passion.
Do you tune your goals to get maximum opportunity attraction?
