Its the same with your life. What are your goals for yourself? These might relate to personal or work/business issues. What is your intention and what are you focusing on? Where are you now?
A friend of mine was starting a new business but it was all a big vague. He had some ideas about a technology app that he wanted to develop but wasn’t too sure if he could afford to get it off the ground. He had another idea about buying properties to rent out for long term investment but didn’t really have a time frame in mind for this. He wanted to get rich quick and live the high life. But he was also thinking about moving out of London for a quieter life. In essence this guy was not clear about his goals. A year down the line nothing much had changed, he was still talking about his ideas but no further along the path. Hardly surprising since he didn’t know which path he was walking.
Its all very well to envision lots of scenarios, dream lots of dreams and talk lots of talk. Its not until you take action that progress will start.
Having a clear goal is the first step
What is your goal? Be specific
What are you focusing on for your life? Be specific
What will this mean to you? Be specific
What action do you need to take to get there? Be specific
What is the next step? Be specific
A goal is like a puzzle, once you start the journey the pieces will fall into place and all journeys to success start with that first step.
So off you go!
