I love this time of year. The temperature cools down in Arizona, holidays are right around the corner, and, it’s Goal Gettin’ Time! It’s the time of the year when you can hit the gas pedal to finish the year strong, Get Your Goals, and celebrate your successes. It’s also the time to start the reflection and plaing process for the upcoming year. Start by looking back at this year’s highs and lows. What went well and what didn’t…not ignoring the fact that you’ve still got some time to finish strong and make up the gap between your goals and reality. Once you’ve completed that step, it’s time to look forward. Review your 5-year plan and make the necessary adjustments based on where you’re projected to finish this year. Apply the necessary changes to your 3-year plan and finally figure out where you want to be at the end of next year. If you’re using the Get Squared process, review the goals and plans with the people involved in each of your category squares. Make adjustments, get buy-in, and work on getting those plans in place.

Every plan is a waste of time until you Take Action and Execute on that plan. Get out your calendar and start plaing your What, When, Where, and How. Don’t forget to the most important category…your WHY! Without it, even getting out of bed is going to be tough. Your WHY drives it all so take the time to get that clear in your head.

Don’t forget to celebrate your successes…you’ve earned the right through hard work and dedication so don’t skip this step. You don’t have to fly off for a 10-day trip to Hawaii…although if you can and it makes sense, more power to you! But even a small celebration is time well spent.

If you’d like to get your Goals clarified and in place with the help of the Get Squared process, reach out and let’s set up a time to talk. We work with individuals and groups during this time of year to help them finish strong and get out of the gates in a hurry for next year! We’ve helped hundreds of people and we can help you too.

To Your Success!
