Why Set Goals?

You have probably heard this famous quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin:

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!”

How can you know whether your life or business is on track if you haven’t set any goals? The goal is the first step towards a plan to achieve that goal. You need both plus a way to measure your results.

How to Use the BizSugar Goal Setting Templates

In the BizSugar Goal Templates, there are five steps:

  1. Identify one of your top challenges. This is the problem you will solve by setting a goal. Example: “Sales take too long to close leading to cash flow issues”.
  2. Using the SMART system, you will define your goals. SMART stands for: specific, measurable, achievable, results-oriented and time bound. This is a specific action to take Example: “Hire a new sales rep” or “Develop a new product offering with a shorter sales cycle”.
  3. Define what results you want to get. Example: “Double the number of closed sales” or “Achieve a recurring revenue stream of at least $5,000 per month”.
  4. Establish how your results will be measured. Example: “By the number of closed sales” or “By the sales volume coming from the new offering”.
  5. Set a deadline for achieving this goal. This would typically be a number of months.
