THIS WEEK’S IGNITE YOUR MARKET CHALLENGE: FOCUS ON YOUR GOALS!
“I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and I try to ignore the rest.” – Venus Williams
Venus Williams statement is amazing advice, as business owners, we need to focus on our goals, not on the obstacles or the distractions that get in our way. It is so easy to be pulled away from our goals to only discover weeks, months or even a year later we haven’t progressed towards our ultimate goal.
This morning I was working with a client who had a long to-do list. The list was stressing her out, it was too long. I asked her what was her number 1 goal, her answer was to have the first client sign up for her new program. Using that as her filtering criteria she was able to identify her top goals for this week. Our coaching became very focused on that top goal and she cut her list down to 3 focused actions/steps. She got rid of the distracting “shoulds” so that she can stay focused on her ultimate goal.
The challenge this week is to identify your top goal(s) for this week and use them as your filtering criteria. Write them down, pull up your calendar and schedule time to work on them. If you are working on something that doesn’t track to your top goals ask yourself why you are spending time on it this week. Treat working on your top goals as important as a meeting with your number one client.
