Three Smart Tips To achieving set Goals by gomtas: 4:51pm On Aug 06, 2018
Setting goals is what everyone of us resolve to doing but the question of how many actually implements the goals raises a dust in the atmosphere. It also happens that some, just like me do not really see the need of setting goals most times. But along the line I came to realize that no matter how much we fight it, neglect it, ignore it, setting goals is considerably useful if you must reach the mark in time.

Caught in this web, Gene Marks has recommended three rules to setting business goals. Although these rules has his personal biases, it covers a wide range of goal needs for many especially in business. They include the following;

Each Goal Must Be Within the Goal Setter’s Control
Don’t just say “increase sales 25 percent” or “get 17 new clients.” Too many outside factors can affect the achievement of goals like this. Instead, base your goals on real facts (addressing a backlog or meeting a forecast, for example) and make each one accomplish-able mostly by hard work – like finishing a project or completing certain tasks that move the company forward.

Each Goal Must Be Quantifiable
The goal should be clear enough so that there’s no argument about whether it’s been reached or not. A final, signed-off contract, a working prototype, an asset that can be touched, a number that’s clearly stated on a report – these are examples of quantifiable goals. They are either accomplished or they’re not. In most universities, an “A” is achieved with a test score above 93. You either get it or you don’t. Your goals should follow the same rule.

Everyone’s Goals Are Reviewed on a Specific Day
There are people who do and people who manage those who do. The ones who manage are the ones who take the time to set and monitor goals for everyone they manage. That’s why they make the big bucks. To keep the business rolling, you must keep track of every activity on daily bases.

These are Marks' opinion on implementing goals. It worked for his client hope it will work for you too.
