A week or so ago I ran a little poll in our FBFF Facebook group asking how everyone was doing on their 2022 goals.
And … guess what?
For every person who said they were crushing their goals, TWO people said they were NOT on track.
As a coach, you know how important it is to set goals – and also to go back and revisit them to see what’s working (and what isn’t).
No matter which camp you’re in (the goal crushers or the ones who are a little behind)…
… there’s a simple activity you can do that’ll give you a new perspective on what’s really going on in your business.
Here it is:
Step #1: Set aside 10-15 minutes
Step #2: Ask yourself ONE question:
—> If you’re struggling, your question is: “Why am I REALLY not on track to hit my goals?”
It’s time to get real and zero in on what’s holding you back. Is it because of a lack of knowledge? Lack of systems? Is something broken in your business? Afraid to get out of your comfort zone? Lack of focus/execution? Or maybe you’ve actually set the wrong goal!
—> If you ARE on track, ask yourself: “What are the REAL reasons I’m on target to crush my goals?” (So you can identify the levers and KEEP DOING those things!)
Step #3: Just write and be honest with yourself. No judging allowed. (Use a journal, Google doc, or whatever you want.)
It just might be the most insightful time you’ve spent this year.
Almost all business owners spend too much time on “busy” work – work that doesn’t actually move their businesses forward.
This does NOT fall into that category. This exercise can help you identify the bottlenecks that are making it hard for you to break through to the next level!
When I’m stuck, this is one of the first things I do to try to figure out what’s going on.
It has helped me a LOT over the years. Hope it helps you too!
