Moon Landings to Business Growth - Goal Achievers 2018

On 25th May 1961, John F. Kennedy announced to the world his ambitious goal of sending a man to the moon by the end of the decade! On 20th July 1969, Neil Armstrong announced, ‘one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’ … from the moon! Now in 1961, absolutely no one knew how exactly to put a man on the moon so how did the U.S. achieve Kennedy’s goal?

Well, the first thing Kennedy did right was to set goals in the first place and he wasn’t afraid to dream big! Next, he told people about his goal – if a goal is kept secret it’s chances of achievement are relatively low. Then he got working on the smaller steps that needed to be taken to effectively send a man to the moon.

So how can you put Kennedy’s example into practice in your business? Well, the human brain has amazing problem-solving skills and setting goals helps to channel the brain towards finding a solution. By announcing his goal to the world and putting smaller actions in place, Kennedy inspired many people to work towards achieving a single goal and the brain power of many was focused on finding a solution to the problem. So, by taking the time to consider ambitious goals for your business and sharing those goals with your staff and networks, you too will channel your thoughts and actions towards solving the problem.

But it’s all well and good to set goals but how do you make sure you achieve them? Here are some top tips:


1. Dream Big… But be motivated!

The human brain is set up to help you achieve goals that you believe are achievable. Audit your business. What resources do you have? How many customers are in your target market? What skills do you have access to? What time do you have to dedicate to achieving goals? What room do you have for growth? Once you know this you will be able to set ambitious goals that are realistic within the framework of your business. BUT know that big ambitions will only come to fruition if you are motivated to see them through to the end.


2. Bite Size It

It’s likely that one of your goals will involve profitability but if your goal is to double profits your brain’s ‘hell no’ detector may start ringing and there’s no way you will achieve your goal. Instead break it down to more manageable daily or weekly goals. Increased profitability won’t happen without more sales so what can you do everyday that will help increase sales? Remember that the first 30 days following the setting of any goal are the most important. By doing something everyday you are showing that ‘hell no’ detector that you are serious and those around you will also see that you are serious and will start to work towards helping you achieve your goals.


3. Adapt & Adjust

While the end goal always stays the same, be flexible with your smaller mini goals and actions. If they are too easy, make them more difficult or if they are too difficult make them easier. If you fail with your mini goals, then your main goals will never happen. Don’t punish yourself for falling off the bandwagon, in fact, know that you will and allow for it in your plans. Know that after a while the repetitiveness of daily actions may become boring and make sure to challenge yourself every now and then to keep it interesting.


So, if you’d like your business to reach moon like heights get working on your goals now. Dream big, tell people your vision, break it down and take action every day. And if you need some help or simply want to take time out to work on your goals and how you will achieve them book your place on our Goal Achievers 2018 masterclass, taking place on Thursday 18th January at Dungannon Enterprise Centre from 10am – 1pm.
