Measure Your Goals
You know that having goals are important to your business success. Having goals is not enough, though. You have to actually do something with those goals to ever make them useful. Every goal you set should be something that is measurable.
A measurable goal allows you to ensure that you are working towards reaching the goal. You should have milestones that you need to reach by a certain time in order to stay on track to reaching your goals.
When you just set a goal without making sure that there are ways to ensure you are headed towards the goal then it is too easy to let that goal slip out of view. You may never reach the goal if you do not set up the steps to reach it.
A goal is merely an idea until you start putting steps in order to reach it. As you progress towards reaching that goal you should be able to check your progress. This will allow you to see if you are on track or if you need to work harder.
Goals are wonderful and critical to your success as a top agent, but if you do not hold yourself accountable for reaching them then they are useless. Top agents know that managing goals is just as important as setting them.
