Do you know what you want to have achieved by the end of the day? What about by the end of the month? The end of the year? In order to achieve success, it is crucial to establish goals that are specific, attainable, and measurable. Here are three tips to setting and following through on goals.

1. Set Realistic Goals
The goals that you set are just as important as the work you put in to reach them. It is important to set goals that are going to benefit you in the short term and the long term. These goals should be reasonable in terms of the goal itself and the time it takes to reach that goal. For example, it would be unrealistic to set the goal of improving your sales by 350% by tomorrow. However, increasing your sales by 10% each month could be a realistic goal. Then, in three years time sales would be up 350% by the time you set the goal. Setting unrealistic goals can be discouraging and makes it less likely that you will see progress.
Let’s stick with the same example of increasing sales by 10% each month. It is important to decide how best to reach this goal. There are several different actions you can take to increase sales. But which ones increase sales the most? Do you need to invest time and money in improving your product or do you need to invest time and money in marketing? Decide which of these takes priority and spend most of your time focusing on actions that are most important to achieving your goal.
3. Be Consistent
When it comes to setting goals and following through with them, it’s important to just go for it and be consistent. You might be unsure of whether you prioritized the right actions or you might not be able to see progress as quickly as you had hoped. However, be consistent about the work that you put in. Stay consistent, stay on your path and you will find success. Any progress, no matter how slow, is better than no progress at all!
Hopefully these three tips to setting goals help you to find success. When it comes down to it, just trust your instincts, work hard and success will follow.
