Here are three ways to set goals that get you where you want to be.
- Be specific. You have a much better chance of succeeding if you know what your exact goal is. “Raising capital” isn’t a specific goal, but “Raise $10,000 by July 1” is.
- Be realistic. If you set a goal to make $100,000 in a month even though you haven’t earned that much in a year, that’s going to be tough. Begin with small steps like increasing your income by 25 percent. Once you hit that, you can reach for larger goals.
