Goal Setting 101 with Terry Farruk
Greetings San Diego Networkers! We had an awesome WIN LeTip meeting at the Riverwalk Golf Course clubhouse.
For warm-up we paired up and discovered things in common we had with each other. Carol, our marketing consultant discovered that Steve, the visiting general contractor also had a deficient sense of self preservation and was also a white water rafting enthusiast.
Good news for the week, Llewellyn, our Agile programmer, had completely full classes for his Programming for Kids. Way to go Llewellyn!
Steve Clark, a general contractor visited us today, he specializes in electrical, plumbing, and construction. We look forward to adding him to our chapter next week.
Each year re-establish your goals and mission statement.
Prepare mentally to do well and figure out where you are going to make your sacrifices.
Re-evaluate your business plan or make a business plan. It doesn’t make sense to try to build your business if you don’t have a plan.
Make sure you have regular work goals and they should include problem-solving, innovation, and development goals.
Problem solving goals include defining current problems at your business and setting a goal to resolve or improve them.
Innovation Goals include ways that you can re-invent and innovate your business every day. Remember, you cannot remain stagnant in this environment or you will lose ground.
Create a development plan to continue and improve your growth.
Once you have made your plans and goals it is time to EXECUTE. Start your work and execute your plan, don’t stop the forward movement but do evaluate, review and learn from your experience.
Terry then passed out goal sheets that explained his methodology and discussed how to execute. He also made a great point. We are not at WIN LeTip for social networking and the great breakfast, we are here for business networking. So bottom line, create your business plan and then put it in place and start to break down the doors.
Terry’s talk was full of energy and good information and we really appreciated his roundtable.
The meeting wrapped up with this great quote from Zig Zigler, “What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become when you achieve your goals.”
Hope to see you all next week.
