We’ve got an important topic to cover today – something that many people forget about when setting goals.
It’s great that you set your goals… you’re already way ahead of many people. Setting and writing down your goals is absolutely key!
But now I’d like you to do one more thing with those goals… break them down into smaller parts which you can take action on immediately. Here’s a simple example. Let’s say that you want to earn $5000 per month online. The product that you’re selling pays you $400. What you need to do, is first figure out how many sales per month do you need to earn that $5000. The answer is 12,5 so let’s say that you need 13. Now it’s time to see how much time do you have to make one sale (or – if you’ve got more than 30 to sell, how many do you need to sell per day).
Since you need to make 13 sales and a month has roughly 30 days, you would need to make a sale every two and a half days or so. Now you know what to aim for! See? Simply saying that you want to “Earn $5000 per month” doesn’t give you any realistic plan for how you will achieve that number. However, now that you know that to reach it you need to make a sale every two and a half days – you’ve got something realistic and short-term to aim for!
I highly recommend that you do this with all your long term goals. Long term meaning anything longer than a day 🙂
In “The ONE Thing” there’s a page with a few lines of text that can completely change the way that you look at goals and change the way in which you set goals.
“What is the ONE thing that you can do in the next 5 years, such that by doing it, you will be closer to your someday goal?
What is the ONE thing that you can do in the next 2 years, […] to your 5 year goal?
What is the ONE thing that you can do in the next year, […] to your 2 year goal?
What is the ONE thing that you can do in the next 6 months, […] to your yearly goal?
What is the ONE thing you can do this month, […] to your 6 month goal?
What is the ONE thing you can do this week, […] to your monthly goal?
What is the ONE thing you can do today, […] to your weekly goal?
What is the ONE thing you can do right now, such that by doing it you will be closer to your daily goal?”
This is the best example of breaking down goals that I can possibly think off. What you do right now should put you on track and move you closer to reaching even your 5 year or “someday” goal!
Let me give you one last example, before you quickly rush and do this with your goals.
Goal: Lose 50 pounds this year.
Breaking down: 1 pound of fat is equal to approximately 3500 calories. So to lose 50 pounds, you need to have a caloric deficit of 3500*50 = 175000 calories.
Sounds very hard! But wait. Let’s say that you need 3000 calories per day to maintain your current weight. You’ve got 12 months, which is roughly 365 days to “get rid off” 175000 calories (I know that this doesn’t make much sense from a medical standpoint but this is just an example). 175000 calories divided by 365 days gives you about 480.
This means, that all you need to focus on, to lose 50 pounds this year, is stay on a daily caloric deficit of 480 calories! If you really need 3000 calories to maintain weight, just eat 3000 minus 480 which is 2520 calories per day.
See how much easier and more achievable your goal has become?
As always, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and… do this with all your goals – right now!
