How To Set Goals and Actually Achieve Them

Why set goals at all if there is even a slight chance that we might not achieve them?

Here's why setting goals is so important:

1️⃣ Your goal is your compass. It keeps you on track and informs your daily actions 📈

2️⃣ Setting a goal encourages personal development. The discipline, consistency, and perseverance required will develop and strengthen your character 💪🏼

3️⃣ Even if you miss the mark, you are closer to your original goal than ever before. For example, if your goal is to 3x your business and you fall short by a hair, your efforts still doubled your business! 🎯

The daily actions you take to move you closer to that goal will bring about growth that you would have never experienced otherwise, so that is where your focus should be. Rather than only focusing on the end result, keep your focus on the daily actions instead. This allows you to take each day as it comes, keeping you grounded in the present moment, and eliminates the overwhelm you might feel by looking too far ahead.

Let’s talk how to do this effectively ⤵️

Have you ever heard of the TRIBE 5?

I once heard about this idea from Ryan Daniel Moran, and I thought it was genius.

TRIBE 5 stands for Time, Relationships, Income, Body, and Expansion. These are all areas in life that you want to focus on daily, weekly, quarterly, and yearly that will all move you closer to achieving your goals.

So here’s how to implement the TRIBE 5 ⤵️

First, take your goal, put it on a timeline, and break it down to what you need to do in 10 years, in 5, in 3, this year, in 3 months, in 2 weeks, and finally, today: what is the ONE THING you can do today to move you closer to that goal?

Next, on a quarterly basis, set targets for each area of focus, and determine the consistent habits you’ll need to implement regularly to support your goals.

Here is a good place to start:

✨T✨ Target for TIME: Don’t look at your phone for the first half of your day (otherwise get sucked into the mindless scroll!). Mute all notifications and/or delete the email app off of your phone, and designate a specific time to check those things. Reserve all work-related activities for your computer.

✨R✨ Target for RELATIONSHIPS: Check in with two non work-related people each day just to ask them how they are.

✨I✨ Target for INCOME: What is the most income-producing thing you can do? Is it creating content, doing an IG story, writing emails, publishing a blog? Complete that one thing.

✨B✨ Target for BODY: Move your body for 20-30 minutes whether that is a walk outside or a HIIT workout in your basement.

✨E✨ Target for EXPANSION: Challenge your mind to think, learn, and/or see something in a new way. Listen to a podcast, read 10 pages of a personal development book, watch a training, etc.

At the end of each day, grade yourself on the TRIBE 5 without judgment. 1/5 if you completed one thing out of the five, 2/5 if you completed two, and so on and so forth. Try implementing this for 90 days and then re-evaluating.

If you are going through a really hard time, just focus on ONE THING and do that very consistently.

The goal is not perfection, just consistency over time.

Remember that success is a series of small things 🤍✨
