You have goals, and because you’re an entrepreneur, you likely have a plan for how to accomplish them.
But do you know when it’s time to adjust your goals?
If you’re executing your plan but not seeing the success you want, you may benefit from modifying the way you approach your short- and long-term goals. Consider changing your approach if:
You Aren’t Making Progress.
If you’re not seeing progress toward your goals, ask yourself why. You may need to break your plan into smaller, more achievable steps. Or, you may need to be honest with yourself about your habits. Either push yourself to adopt better strategies or find a plan of attack that will enable you to succeed with your current strengths. Lack of progress may be a sign that you need to develop skills that you don’t have or upgrade existing ones. When your plan is not carrying you forward, consult with a trusted mentor. They can advise you on how to adjust your daily habits to guarantee that you’re on the road to success.
You Feel Unprepared.
Uncertainty and insecurity might be a sign that you need to take steps to protect yourself. For example, creating plans of action for worst-case scenarios will help you reduce risks and handle setbacks without losing your progress (or your cool!). Building and maintaining a savings fund will help you stick to your savings goals now and in the future. Prudent planning will help you move forward with greater confidence and stability.
Your Goals Change.
If you decide that your goals or priorities have shifted, consider revising your step-by-step approach. Don’t keep an old plan if you have new goals; make sure you are spending your time working in the direction you want to go! Consider assessing your goals and how you are working toward them throughout the year. If your goals have changed, update your plans for the upcoming months.
Your Mentors Recommend Changes.
Your mentors know you. They also know what it takes to succeed! Listen when they tell you it’s time for a change. They may recommend more effective methods of working toward your goals. Trust their experience and time-tested advice; you won’t be sorry.
