Ask yourself "What are my business plan goals and objectives?" It is an important question. If you have an idea in mind of what you wish your business to look like, you have given this thought.
The idea has to be more than a thought. Business plan goals and objectives make the difference all around. If you do not have these, you might as well put your time and money in the garbage can. It is as if you are walking to nowhere fast.
A business goal is the finish line for a project. With no goal, it’s like you keep on running like a fool.
Business objectives are your milestones. You need objectives to get your point across. Without objectives, you can cross the finish line, but you will be very confused. What did you do along the way?
Did you learn anything at all? Did your customers get the result they wanted? Is there room to build for the future?
Craft Your Goals And Objectives
Take some quiet time with no one around, get some paper, a few magazines and glue sticks. Yes, this sounds like craft hour, but it is not at all. If you can picture objectives and goals, they are much more likely to come through.
Write Them Down
Write down your goals first. What do you want your dream to be? Is it a new home, or growing your business by 50 percent, or starting a college fund for your children? Write these goals down. Also dream big! Do not be afraid! This is your life, your business, your future and your goals.
You need to make this happen. No one else will do this for you. Life is not a read through. This is not to make you feel maudlin. This may be the thing that gets your mind-set in gear. You have no time to waste. Write down every goal that is precious to you.
Now that you have written down your goals, gather up pictures that reflect these goals. If it is growing your business, cut out pictures that remind you of that. If it is putting more money away for college, take pictures of your children. You may own a landscaping firm. Take pictures of every flower, shrub and tree you can find.
Get the biggest piece of tag board you can find and start placing these pictures on there. Like a collage, if you will. Post each picture and maybe write a simple word like "dream" or "motivate." Take each picture and give it a place. Do not be afraid again to dream. This is your life, and you must make it happen.
Without goals and objectives, you are letting everyone pass you by. You deserve the life of your dreams, so make it happen. You can achieve this and so much more.
