Goal Setting is a Good Start. Setting a Goal-Achieving Plan is Better.

A couple of common mistakes entrepreneurs make when setting goals, and suggestions to get better at the goal setting and achieving process.

#1. Setting goals without a goal achievement plan is like throwing up a prayer, absent the works behind it. You’re left with nothing but empty promises.

#2. Goal setting is a skilled trade. And like most skilled trades, there is a process involving becoming mediocre, good, then great at it. Accept that you may suck at it in the beginning, and that’s OK. Commit to the process.

#3. Be careful of what you wish for. Big goals are going to require some BIG things in return from you. Ask yourself, who must I become, and what changes must I make in order to become the person that is deserving of the goals I’ve set? Forward movement and progress almost always require some friction initially. Accept it.

#4. Big goals necessarily require the cooperation of others. Clearly define the talents and skills that you need to execute the goal-achieving process, and make connections with good people who share your values and work ethic before you need them. Organic partnerships are the best!

#5. Dream big. Start small. You build a large edifice one brick at a time. Inculcate a spirit of gratitude, and document your progress to ensure you appreciate the small wins along the way. Create a brief, simple goal-achieving itinerary that you can execute daily until it becomes habitual.
