Write Down Your Goals!
When was the last time you set out on a new week with GOALS in mind?
Well, as a busy entrepreneur, mom, author, wife and more, I have to admit I have not written down my goals in about four months. I recently had a call with one of my new coaches/mentors and she asked point blank “what is your goal for your business” and I was stumped. I know I have goals. I know I have a business plan (sort of), I know I make my financial goals (most of the time) but I do not have my monthly/weekly goals written down.
So, that leads me to the TEW Blog! One of my goals for the past four months has been to give this blog a little love, devotion and encouragement. Therefore, I will devote a chunk of time and a full coffee cup to this blog every Sunday! I find that on Sundays, we are rejoicing, praying, revisiting our plan and most often, making a mark on what the week has in store for us.
Today I made three goals – not too many, not too few, just enough.
I will share them with you so you can keep me honest!
1) My first goal, which is a long time coming is to Re-Fuel this TEW Blog with the same passion, purpose and fire that was underneath it when it first started out! We all need an outlet, and if you’re anything like me, all entrepreneurs feed from others inspiration; at least that’s what they say!
2) Make my business more “likeable” – by this, what I plan to do is make a better effort to follow up within 24-hours. Secondly, I plan to get a stack of postcards printed this week and with each new graphic design order (my business is www.jmhcre8ive.com) I will send a friendly thank you postcard to the client within two to three weeks or less! I have been talking about this for over a year. It’s time to stop procrastinating JMH!
3) Implement my project management software for once and for all! I have a fabulous creative team, consultants alike and a wonderful lady named “Mother’s Love” who is ready to become the virtual admin for #teamJMH however procrastination and laziness has bit me time and time again. This week we will implement our project management system so that we can stay on track, honor commitments to clients and make the business run so much smoother than it has! I am truly excited.
Well, there you have it. Those are my goals for this week. I hope you take the time to create some as well!
