“I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they plan their lives. Perhaps that is because escape is easier than change.” — Jim Rohn
My friend Kasten Spethmann recently sent me an email with this quote. It is a fair generalization. And it definitely is true is business and careers. How much thought and planning do you put into your career or business? Short term, each year or bigger picture?
We all know the saying that if you write down goals there is a much better chance you will attain them. But do you do this? You should. At least annually.
And then you need to keep your goals on your desk, your computer desktop or wherever you will actually look at them prior to writing your next year’s goals. Maybe make a weekly or monthly calendar event to remind you. Maybe include steps or action plans you will take to try and meet those goals.
The idea is to set goals, review them and work on them. Yes, work on them. This is important planning and work. Doesn’t your career or business deserve at least the same time you put into planning your vacations?
Let me know if you want to discuss setting goals, action plans, etc.
