A year ago this week we were talking about goals and challenges. Making goals visible is paramount to making them happen. I shared my tips with you on doing this. I also asked you to explore your challenges. I love getting challenges them down on paper… it helps me make peace with them. We wrapped up the week with a fab feature on one our Branding Specialists, Kelly Ashworth.
Goal-setting is at the crux of realizing your business dreams. We all know what we want to accomplish, but we don’t always spend the 30 minutes to write them down. Writing them down is key to making them tangible ideas that we can work to accomplish. But, writing them down and never revisiting them doesn’t do you any good. You WILL forget about them. Goals need to be a part of your EVERY DAY life.
One of the exercises we do at The Simple Plan as a part of our goal-setting and vision-defining is to name our challenges. This seems like a pretty simple exercise (and it is – that’s why we call it The Simple Plan)! But, what we often uncover is a new way to look at goal-setting.
Today, I’d like you to grab a sheet of paper and quickly jot down 5 challenges that you are currently facing. These could reflect business or personal challenges. What do you see?
These are some things that I notice when I write down my challenges… (click here for the rest of this post).
