5 top tips to help set your 2022 business goals

Posted on 4 January, 2022 by Lyndsey Segal in Business Coaching

At the start of a new year, our minds invariably turn to what we want to achieve in our business – our business goals – and how we can use them to guide and grow our business. 

Knowing how or where to start setting business goals can sometimes feel confusing or overwhelming.

Here are my 5 top tips to help set your 2022 business goals and bring focus and purpose to your productivity:

1. Know the why behind your goals

Think about why your goals are important to you and the difference their outcomes will make to you and your business. Ensure your goals are aligned with your mission, vision and values.

2. Set business goals by size

Some people find it hard to set traditional long-term, medium-term and short-term goals, especially with the changing landscape of COVID-19. 

Instead, separating goals according to their size and identifying little, medium, and big-sized goals can help.

If you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed, setting micro-goals will help you break down each goal into its smallest and most actionable steps. 

Turn your micro goals into tasks in your schedule, calendar or planner to hold yourself accountable and boost your productivity.

3. Set SMART business goals

These are goals that are S-Specific, M-Measurable, A-Attainable, R-Realistic and T-Timely.

4. Keep your business goals visible

We are 42% more likely to reach our goals if we write them down. Whether you save your business goals to your desktop or folder on your computer, write them on a whiteboard or in a notebook, keeping your goals visible will encourage you to take regular action towards achieving them.

5. Regularly reflect on your business goals

Carrying out weekly and monthly reviews will help you review your goals and determine your next steps. 

Answering these three questions will help you evaluate and plan your next steps: 

1.What progress have I made? 

2.What setbacks have I encountered? 

3.What do I need to change or do next?

Remember to celebrate your milestones and successes!

Aligning your goals to your vision, values and purpose, structuring your goals, keeping them visible and regularly reviewing them will help you guide and grow your business in 2022. Good luck!
