How to set and achieve your business goals

Hello readers, today I am going to be telling you about how your business goals should be set and achieved. You should have long term goals and short term goals. There must be an alignment between your long term business goals and your short term business goals. Your long term goals should be broken into short term goals. Both set of goals will be achieved that way. Long term goals are goals that should be achieved after a period of 1 year. It could 2 years or 3 years or 10 years while your short term goals are to be achieved within a year or below.

The acronym SMART should be used when setting your goals. Your goals should specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timely. For example do not say you want to make money, say I want to make $20000 within one year, selling 40 products monthly, this will allow my business to grow. I want to make $20000 within one year, that is specific and timely. Your goal will be measurable by keeping track of the money you make per month. It will become achievable with the notion of selling 40 products monthly to make the $20000. It will become relevant to your business because getting additional capital can help you grow your business.

Visualising your goals will help you achieve them. You can imagine what your life will be like after achieving these goals.  Praying 5 times daily to Allah can help you achieve your goals. The actions you will be carrying out daily in order to achieve your goals should be written down, this will also help you achieve your goals.

You have to be optimistic about achieving your goals, this will motivate you to go after them. You should believe in yourself that you can achieve your goals. Your goals must also be realistic as unrealistic goals will end up demotivating you. In other words, take small steps when setting your goals until you can achieve larger goals.

That is all for today. Thank you for reading this article. Keep checking out my blog regularly, cheers!
