How to set simple money goals you can actually achieve.
So in our house, if we achieve our money goals plus a little bit extra, then we get a take-away, otherwise we have to cook.
Take-aways might not be your reward but actually giving yourself free or low cost rewards on a regular basis is extremely motivating.
If you work for yourself and don’t have a boss, then no one else is going to give them to you and you need to do them for yourself.
So today we are talking about goal setting and whether you call it dreams, promises, targets, whatever, it doesn’t really matter.
What we are talking about today, is setting a simple weekly goal.
A simple weekly goal that is achievable, possible but just a little bit of stretch.
Just a little bit of stretch so you can achieve it.
- If you are just starting up setting the amount of a client, the monetary amount of one client a week is probably enough.
- Or if you sell products and you are selling 10 a week, make it 12.
- Often it is about consistency and achieving that money target, week in week out. When you do you get that little reward.
So why do it that way?
I know that you might think, I can set that target but that’s not enough. Actually you need to start somewhere.
Starting now with a weekly target builds that money goal achieving muscle.
Plus it puts you in a really positive frame of mind and when you are feeling positive about money, that makes a huge difference.
You can change it in the future if you want, well you hopefully you will once you go through those targets.
Think about it on a Friday night, or Friday you are thinking, oh I haven’t quite reached my goal and it can be quite fun thinking how am I going to reach my goal and the satisfaction of achieving it.
Or if you have had a really good week, having the afternoon off and enjoying yourself.
Thank you for watching.
