Every year it's important we pause and consider our goals. Maybe you crushed some goals last year or maybe you still have goals on your "to do list" that just haven't gotten done. We've all been there, throughout the years we find ourselves in both places depending on the year.
But what if there was a process that helped you actually put your goals in perspective, created a not-to-tight structure and then finally finish them?
There is... it's called the Reverse Goal Setting™ process and business owners have been following it for years to successfully reverse into their goals and then crush them!
On the Roadmap to Grow Your Business podcast, we break down the Reverse Goal Setting™ process over few episodes every December. You can binge listen or listen week-to-week as the new episodes are released, depending on the time of year you landed here.
I encourage you to check out some newer episodes on the podcast where we break down the Reverse Goal Setting™ process.
The Reverse Goal Setting Process is essentially a 5 step process and I go into detail on the first two steps because these are ESSENTIAL to getting the process right and setting goals that will actual work!
There is a reason Kendra Erkamaa, a financial advisor in Des Moines, IA, who went through the process last year, says... "Stacey, your Reverse Goal Setting process rocked my world with a fresh take on goal setting. It opened up more opportunity that I didn’t see before. I will never set goals the same way again!"
So let's take a look at what the fuss is all about.
Step 1. Reflect Back
There are 8 questions I want you to ask yourself as you reflect back on this year (2018). These questions are essential to allowing you to understand what worked, what didn't and the ways you want next year and future years to look.
Reflecting back also lets you set your intention for next year...in this case a word that will motivate you, encourage you and give you a swift kick in the hiney if you fall off course. (Which is usually inevitable.)
Step 2. Envision the Long-Range
At this point in the process most people jump into planning for next year - setting metrics and measureables - but don't. Resist the urge, please!
It is too soon. You have a few more steps before you outline your plan of attack for next year. You need to look further out - 5 years out - and determine what you want for your life and business.
Following the worksheet you will need to calculate your age in 5 years (painful, I know) and the age of your kids or other important people in your life. By putting an age, the future very quickly rushes to the present and it allows us to think differently.
Next, write down what you want to accomplish - personally and professionally - and then write down why you want to accomplish those things. Put your why to the "why and really" test to solidify your commitment to it!
Now you are ready to tackle the next few steps in the Reverse Goal Setting process and I'd LOVE to help you do that during the Reverse Goal Setting Masterclass coming up in December. Get the details here!
