2015 Goal Achievement

Did you make 2015 New Year’s Resolutions?

Yes? Did you write them down?

Great! Keep going!

Did you share them with a friend?

Super-duper, your odds of accomplishment are going up slightly.

Are they specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and with a date attached?

Yes? Wowsa, you are really an exception.

Now, here is the crux. Do you have a Plan of Action?

Have you broken your goals into daily, weekly activities, monthly and quarterly milestones?

wrrOne of the best tools I’ve ever used (thanks Darren Hardy!!) is called a Weekly Rhythm Register. It is a simple tracking device (mine is in Excel) that you list ¬†your key activities for the week down the left column and then the next 7 columns are days of the week. You simply track your activities with a number each day and write it in the box.

Here’s an example. Let’s say you have a goal of growing your business with 1 new customer a week. You have decided that making phone calls each day is the best way to achieve that goal. You decide on a number – for instance, 3 a day.

In the left column you write down “make phone calls” and then in each day’s box for the 7 columns to the right you mark down the actual number.

If you find that you are being consistent in making calls, and your results are not “on target”, then you can evaluate with these questions:

1. Am I calling the right people?

2. Am I getting through to them or leaving voice mails that don’t get returned?

3. Does my script need changing or tweaking?

4. Do I need to increase the number of calls?

5. Do I need to upgrade my list of prospects?

After in-depth analysis, if you still aren’t getting the results you want, then consider changing the activity and re-test.

Finally, pick an accountability partner to help you stay on track to achieving your goals. That is like adding rocket fuel to your tracking.

Go make 2015 your best year ever!!!
