Check out these 10 creative but simple ways
to achieve your business goals
with joy and fulfillment.


1. Team Up With A Partner:

Find someone who is working on a similar goal or project. Set up times when you will work on things together or get together to brainstorm. Often working with someone else makes setting and achieving your business goals more fun & keeps your creativity going, too.


2. Break It Down:

Take a look at your business goals and break them down into smaller bite-sized pieces. These can often be listed as and thought of as "tasks." Then focus on completing one task at a time. Sometimes we can overwhelm ourselves if we try to look at the entire goal/project at one time. Yet, when we break them down into tasks it becomes much more manageable.


3. Keep A Ta-Da List:

A Ta-Da is similar to a To-Do list. However, instead of writing down all the things you still need to do, this list is for all things you have done. It's important to see/track how far you've come in achieving our business goals, and not only how far you still have to go. When we see how far we've come, we build confidence in ourselves for the journey still ahead.


4. Make A Vision Board:

A vision board can help you clarify what your business goals will provide you. It's a visual representation of what you desire to achieve and attract. You can make one on your computer using clip art, or grab some magazines and clip out words or images that remind you of what you want to achieve.

Be sure to post your vision board somewhere you will see it often. You can even take a picture of it and have it as your desktop image or the backdrop on your phone.


5. Give Yourself Gold Stars:

Much like the big charts in the back of your grade-school classroom, make a Gold Stars Chart for yourself. You can find charts like this at OfficeMax or Staples in the classroom/teacher section. Mark down each goal and the tasks it will take for you to get you there. For each thing you complete, stick a gold star on the chart to celebrate your accomplishment. Imagine how empowering and invigorating it would be to look up from your desk and see all your gold stars!


6. Clarify Your Why:

Take a look at each of your business goals and ask yourself the following questions: Why do I want to achieve this? How will achieving this benefit me? What will achieving this gain for my family and/or friends? And what are the pros to spending my time & money on this? What are the cons?

Make sure you are clear about why you've set your goal. Allow this to pull you into action and keep you motivated. Make as specific a list as you can as to WHY it's important. Next, take a look at that list and mark any that you think you "should do" with a capital "S."

If you're doing something because you "should," it is likely that your motivation isn't coming from within you but from the outside world. If this is the case, it is likely your motivation will dwindle and in fact, you could end up creating more self-doubt than confidence.

See if you can figure out why you would "want" to do this. If it’s not something you want to do, let it go and believe it will be okay. Good things are more likely to happen when you focus on something you want to do instead of focusing on something you think you should do.


7. Delegate It:

You don't HAVE to do everything yourself in order to achieve your business goals. Delegation is powerful! It often allows you to achieve more in less time. Take a look at your bite-sized goals and determine which ones you can delegate to someone else (yes, even pay someone to do it).

Delegation is not only a great way to get more done, it can also be a great accountability tool. There is something about "having" to move forward because you told someone you were going to do it.

Plus, getting a completed task back from someone can reignite your energy for completing the rest of the project. There are lots of very, very technically savvy teens looking to make a few dollars, or even the stay at home mom down the street who might be willing to help you out for a couple hours here and there.

And, of course, you can also always hire a virtual assistant, too. Take a look at that list you've got and consider what you can let someone else take care of for you.


8. Work Toward It:

Remember you don't start off at the completion of your business goals, you work toward it. For example, if you want to post on your Facebook page four times a day, start posting one time a day and work up from there.

Start out with something that you know you can handle, with something that’s easy for you. This will build your confidence and help you create new behaviors, routines, and systems. Which will make it easier to add in another day and another and another.

Remember, if your goal is to post four times a day by the end of the year, you have 12 months to get there. And every added post is something you can count as a success. If you try to do too much at once, overwhelm will likely set in quickly and your motivation won't last.


9. Go With The Ebb and The Flow:

To think that you will always have HIGH powered motivation is, well, just unrealistic. We all have times where we can get a TON done, where things just fall into place, and we can just go, go, go.

And then there are times when we don't have the same energy level and nothing seems to get done. Keep aware and don't let the ebb scare you or get you into a cycle of self doubt.

Know that there will be another flow, know that it's coming soon, and that all will be well. The ebb and flow of motivation is there to keep us balanced. Allow yourself to utilize the flow and embrace the ebb.


10. Affirmations:

Affirmations are quite literally the most powerful tool I have in my tool belt when it comes to business goals. Keeping your mind focused on the positive and on the possibilities can be a game changer.

They allow you to turn your thoughts towards that which you desire. I just can't say enough. Give it a try this month and share your experience with me. I want to know. Did they work for you?  *Visit my Pinterest boards for more affirmations!
