Take Action to Reach Your Goals

"To guarantee success, act as if it were impossible to fail." - Dorothea Brande

Are you where you want to be with your business goals? In Lack of Progress on Your Goals I wrote about how to get a handle on your goals at this time of the year. The first point I made was about getting prospects in your pipeline. The second point I made is that we sometimes don't leverage our current clients to help us reach our goals. The third point I made is about taking action to reach your goals.

A Business Plan is no good without goals. Goals are no good without action. We can attend tons of seminars and workshops, conferences and classes, but if we don't take the knowledge we've gained and put it into action, then we've really wasted our time.

Get out your Business Plan and all the notes you took at the last conference you attended and decide the following:

What are the top 5 most important actions you need to take in order to achieve your goals?

Then start to chip away at each item on your list one by one in order of importance. Don't let the scary goals stop you from getting started. Do it today!
