Are you ready to get back to your life and start planning your next steps? COVID-19 has caused many of our plans to change and to reconsider what we genuinely want. Spending weeks at home and navigating the new normal have brought a new perspective. Life still goes on and so do our desires to make progress. We need to plan out our next moves and a great way to achieve this is to create a Success Plan! It is a strategic 3-Step Process to achieve your goal!
Step 1: Break down the steps it will take to achieve your goal. Here, you record the actual process you will go through to get to that finish line.
(For example, if your goal is to start a new business you first need to start a business plan, establish what your business will offer, what need will it fulfill. How will you make money from this and at what point will you turn a profit? Will you need to hire employees and what will your overhead expenses be. Get all your details together and start planning out your timeline.)
Step 2: Create a realistic timeline for each step. Pull out your calendar and set dates for yourself to achieve each step you wrote down. This will help you keep yourself accountable and focused on your end goal. If for some reason, you miss a date, just reschedule it out and do not give up. Keep in mind, it is more about achieving each step than it is about the time it takes to get there.
Step 3: Celebrate each step's success as you make progress! This helps you to keep it fun and enjoyable.
It seems simple with only 3 steps, but the process will take time. Making a change and going for your goals will take focus. Having a laid-out process to follow can help keep yourself organized and on target with a schedule. Enjoy the journey and celebrate that you are actively trying to improve your life!
