There are many kinds of goals… seeking a new career, starting a business, becoming a consultant, repositioning yourself within your current field, writing a book… the list is endless. But once you’ve identified a goal, then what? With so many people, the problem isn’t knowing what their goal is, but how to get there. To reach a goal you need a process. One that works.
Write a positioning statement. Writing it down will help you shape your goal. Articulating goals makes them real. If you can’t commit to paper, then you’re not ready. If you can’t write a positioning statement then you don’t know what your position is.
Does your goal make sense, or is it just a reaction to another problem? Think about why you want what you want. Once you have the right reasons, then the commitment will follow.
Information gathering is critical to the viability of your goals. Knowledge is power… whether it’s information about a job target, industry, competitive information or marketplace analysis.
Set objectives, make a plan, set a timeline, establish deadlines. The only way from here to there is one step at a time.
The final success is in the execution. Whether your plan requires a resume, a marketing brochure, a step by step outline, a marketing strategy… the common reference point is action.
I have spent 20 years helping people cross this important bridge from where they are to where they want to be… and I can assure you, when people find the way to reach their goals, their lives are transformed.
I would be happy to assist you in this process. Feel free to call if you have any questions.
