Baby Boomers 6 Simple Powerful Ways to Achieve Your Goals


Business Management Goals 300x123 Baby Boomers 6 Simple Powerful Ways to Achieve Your GoalsEvery morning I start my day by scanning my iGoogle page for headlines for each of the blogs I have a subscription via rss. Everyone should take advantage of this Google tool. Saves me considerable time and I can monitor 5 times as many blogs.

My point is… continues to exceed my expectations, helps me focus as a business person and always provides encouraging and uplifting content.

This morning was no different. Jan Bolick, publisher of Business Class Inc., wrote about the significance of goal setting and how to achieve them as an individual and as management of sales goals in a business. Click here to see the post—> Hoping or Hopping? She related her story about using them in advertising sales, but the basics remain the same for personal or business goals.

Below are the 6 simple but powerful ways to achieve goals in business or in life. Also, I add my comments after each goal.

1. Clearly define the goal-State the goal and put a date to achieve it. A goal without a date is just a wish.

2. Break it into small measurable parts-Goals become easier , less overwhelming and ultimately more achievable when broken down into monthly, weekly, and daily tasks.

3. Monitor progress- As Bob Parsons, CEO of, states in his 16 Rules for Business and Life In General ”anything that is measured and watched, improves.”

4. Prepare for setbacks-Almost nothing works the first time it is attempted. There is always more than one path to your goals.

5. Celebrate along the way-Celebrate the small victories along with the large ones. There is always a reason to be positive and to celebrate.

6. Evaluate-Manage the goals, review them regularly, remember anything that is not managed will deteriorate.

Bonus: Again from Bob Parsons, 16 Goals in Business and Life in General: 7. Always be moving forward. Never stop investing. Never stop improving. Never stop doing something new. The moment you stop improving your organization, it starts to die. Make it your goal to be better each and every day, in some small way. Remember the Japanese concept of Kaizen. Small daily improvements eventually result in huge advantages.

Always Positive,
