WORKING ON YOUR ANNUAL GOALS REVIEW FOR 2017

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

Most real estate agents are working on their goals and plans for 2017.  If you do this every year then your are probably doing an annual goals review aned adjusting things for 2017 based on future projects and your previous experience.

Who should be working on their goals and plan for 2017? The answer is everyone; entrepreneurs and business owners, managers and executives, students and other individuals. Right now I am working with businesses and executives in Westchester County New York on their annual goals review.

Setting a goal is not like a New Year's resolution. That is just a wish. Just wishing and hoping for something isn't going to make it happen. Setting a goal is having a target to shoot for and a plan to get there.

When planning your goals, choose which categories you would like for your goals. Establish the time frame. They could be lifetime goals, 10 year, 5 year, 1 year, 6 month, 3 month, 1 month, or weekly goals. Also you can have ongoing goals, such as exercising 3 to 5 times a week. Be specific when you write your goals. Don't just write down "I want to weigh less." Write "I will weigh 180 pounds by July 2016."

Make sure your goal statement is positive. Don't say, "I don't want to be fat." Say "I will be a healthy 130 pounds by May 2017." The achievement of a worthwhile goal can seem daunting at first. The easiest way to proceed is to break your goal down into smaller steps. Start with the first step then move onto the next. When making your plans, a good way is to start is from the end part and work your way to the present.

Measure your progress. After you complete a step, check it off! Watching steady progress is a good motivator. A simple example could be if your goal was to be able to do 100 continuous pushups, you could mark off the milestones of 25, 50, 75, 80, and finally 100!

Don't be discouraged by setbacks. All successful people experience setbacks, disappointments, and failure along the way. That's just part of the process. That's part of learning. Many times these act as course corrections to get you back on target.

There are several success principles used in goal achievement. One is properly programming your mind. You need to review your goal in the morning and at night before you go to bed. Have your goal written on a 3" x 5" card so you can review during the day. At night, ask your subconscious mind for solutions to problems and methods or tools for helping you achieve your goal.

Another important principle is that of persistence. No one has enjoyed great achievement without persistence.

 

Results

Do something every day towards your goal. A day's action puts you one step closer to your objective. Doing something every day creates a momentum that is hard to stop.

When it comes to achieving your goals, you need to move single-mindedly and relentlessly toward your objective. You will be unstoppable!  Read a similar blog post on our web site titled CREATING YOUR BUSINESS PLAN AND GOALS FOR 2017.

Set positive goals.  When we are setting business goals we tend to have a more positive spin on it when setting personal goals we tend to beat ourselves up.  Be kind to others and it is equally important to be kind to self. ;)

Hi Grant

I am starting to work on my plan and goals for 2017 and this will be a big help. Developing thos goals, or at least defining them appropriately, is sometimes a challenge. Bookmarked for reading a few more times as I work through the process.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Good morning Grant Schneider ,

I'm so glad that Gabe Sanders re-blogged your post. It's an excellent one. I always write by business plan in November as I'm measuring my 4th quater goals. Goals have to be measured its the only way to make sure you achieve your results. This year has been a banner year for me and I've more than exceeded my goals!
