Last week I had good news!
I heard that I was a finalist in the Best Financial & Professional Services Business section of the Kingston Business Excellence Awards.
I’m delighted - of course.
What’s more, it proves that goal-setting works.
Last December, I set my 2019 goal.
It was: “To achieve enough local success that I can enter a local business award with a meaningful chance of success.”
Now of course I haven’t won the award yet (and there’s stiff competition).
But to me, being named as a finalist means I’ve achieved my goal.
Why did setting the goal help?
It spurred me to take action that I probably wouldn’t otherwise have taken.
I didn’t just set the goal.
I identified what I needed to do to achieve it - and did it.
Without that focused action, I doubt whether I'd have had enough evidence to warrant entering the award.
Have you set yourself a goal?
And if so, are you doing what you need to do to achieve it?
