Always remember “why”. Many people fail to translate plans into actions because they forget why they worked on it in the first place. Instead of focusing on the results, remind yourself why you are working towards this goal. Focusing on a big goal may feel overwhelming, but breaking it down and identifying key milestones will make you work towards the goal bit by bit. Consider further breaking down your milestones into monthly or weekly checkpoints. For example, instead of focusing on the goal of quadrupling sales next year, focus on small achievements that can be used to achieve the goal. You might spend a month researching your competitors, re-examining the pricing of your products or services next month, and then developing and launching new marketing activities next month. Sharing small victories is an important part of maintaining momentum. By rewarding yourself every time you reach a checkpoint, stay motivated and track progress towards your goals.
