You are in control of your dreams and success. No one else can give you the drive to do better. You have to hold yourself accountable and set goals in order to reach the success you desire. It can be hard to come up with ways to hold the accountability that you need. Here are three great tips for doing so:
Get honest: All of the tips, tricks, and strategies in the world won’t motivate you to stay on track with your business if you’re aiming for the wrong thing, chasing every shiny object, or not following your gut. So first, get honest about your business goals and the steps you need to take to get there.
Do a daily business check-in: This can be as informal as a question that you ask yourself at the end of each work day or as formal as a written daily business check-in worksheet. Ask yourself questions like: “Did I generate income today?” “Did I put myself in front of new clients or customers?” “Did I drop the ball on anything?” “Any big wins?” If you do a written check-in, you can review your answers every week or month to see what’s working and what’s not.
Revamp: If you’ve fallen short, ask yourself why. Were your goals, rewards, or punishments out of whack? Sometimes we procrastinate on things that we know deep down that we shouldn’t be doing- could that be why you didn’t reach your goal? If things are chugging along fine but could be better, don’t hesitate to adjust, tweak, and revamp your system of accountability over time.
