"Nature can do no more
She has fulfilled her Dyes
Whatever Flower fail to come
Of other Summer days
Her crescent reimburse
If other Summers be
Nature's imposing negative
Nulls opportunity --"
~Emily Dickinson

Summer is a little more laid back and relaxing. We tend to take time off to enjoy our favorite activities and bond with our families, so it's an excellent time to rethink our goals - or perhaps to separate our dreams from our goals.

Goals are the foundation of our business, whether it's writing, publishing, marketing, etc.. They provide targets with which to gauge your progress, they are the basis for your marketing and financial planning, and when divided into manageable steps will provide the path to the realization of those goals.

Here are a few things to keep in mind while setting your goals from your lounge chair :

  • Be realistic. If you set your goals beyond what is reasonable to accomplish you're defeating the purpose and will frustrate everyone involved. Reaching a goal can be uplifting and spur you on to the next goal and even greater heights of accomplishment.
  • Make a firm decision in your mind that once you have set your goals you will stick to them. Setting goals is the easy part - following through to bring them to realization is the difficult part.
  • Write your goals down and refer to them often to make sure you are still on your game plan.
  • Rank from the maximum to minimum in importance so that the most critical goals are met first.
  • Set your goals in a proactive manner. In other words plan for profitability not preventing loss.
  • As part of your plan be sure to set up a way to track and evaluate your progress and make necessary corrections.
  • Once your goals are set make an action plan to start working towards achieving them.
  • Be flexible in the way you implement your plan. Don't pass by unexpected opportunities that may arise as long as they ultimately move your plan forward to fulfill your vision
  • Don't give up. If you're having a problem try out a different method and move forward. Be persistent.
  • When you have achieved a goal - celebrate! The path to your final destination has been shortened. Take time to enjoy the moment.
  • Setting and achieving goals motivates and empowers us. In order to unlock the power we must make sure our goals are challenging but not unattainable; that they are consistent with our vision; and that we do not lose sight of them.

    The people who make an impact have goals. They set them and don't lose sight of them until they have achieved them. Goal setting is a powerful tool in your quest for excellence in your business and your life...
