There is no substitute for knowing how to set and attain personally meaningful objectives when it comes to success. This is why we make goal setting a foundational topic in the Evolve Marketing training program.
Our leaders help team members set challenging yet realistic targets, and then achieve them. Here are a few Evolve Marketing guidelines we follow:
• Align Goals With Values: The objectives we work hardest for are the ones that appeal to us on both a logical and emotional level. We take time to reflect on our true motivations, and then set goals that line up with them.
• Think Big: We know we’ve set a worthy target when it makes us a little nervous. If it doesn’t stretch our thinking, we think bigger.
• Use SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-sensitive – these are the necessary elements of a well-planned objective. Using these as a filter, even the vaguest ambitions can be turned into laser-sharp goals.
• Break Long-Term Objectives Down: Once we’ve determined what we’d like to achieve, we break that monolithic goal down into mid-range, short-term, and even daily action steps. This helps us build momentum and maintain focus as we strive toward our ultimate achievements.
