The most successful health entrepreneurs that I know set goals in a simple yet powerful ways.
Have you ever set goals in the past? Most of us have, and if we are honest with ourselves, we probably didn’t accomplish what we had set out to.
Goal setting should simple. The challenge is staying accountability to what you write down. That’s why we created the Health Experts Alliance community here! Research shows that being accountable to an uplifting and encouraging community transforms desired outcomes.
The 90-day goal setting cycle creates an immense amount of moment from month to month. However, it’s essential we don’t create unrealistic expectations for ourselves. That’s why it’s important to follow the goal setting sytem I’ve created by clicking this image below:
“We greatly overestimate what we can accomplish in one year. But we greatly underestimate what we can accomplish in three years.”
– Peter Drucker
Peter is arguably one of the world’s greatest thought leaders on business systems and executive success.
He’s right! If you try to do too much too quickly, if you overwhelm yourself with too many goals you will collapse. Your “will power” bucket can only last for so long…
But when we focus on incremental growth over 90-day cycles, in three years from now, you may be in an entirely new stratosphere like I am every 3 years when I look back.
So here is the “goal setting formula” that most people have never seen before.
AS + Pt + S + Fp + S.M.A.R.T = Success
AS = Assume success
Pt = Positive tense
S = Short
Fp = First person
S.M.A.R.T. = Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, Timed
Lets put this together in a specific example that I wrote down 90 days ago:
“I’ve successfully launched the HPU with 50 tribe members by December 31st 2014.”
Lastly, Steven Covey shows in his recent book, “The 4 D’s of Execution” that it’s important to only focus on one, max two big goals in a 90 day cycle.
You can have other goals leading to that one big goal, but if we saturate ourselves with goals, the research shows we will most likely not accomplish any of them.
