How to evaluate and set your next business goals

Posted on 1 June, 2021 by Lyndsey Segal in Business Coaching

As we approach the halfway point of 2021, it is a good time to reflect on our progress, achievements and challenges so far this year and evaluate the business goals we set for 2021. This will help us to adapt or set new business goals and plan for the rest of 2021.

Here are three questions and three tips to help you:

What goals did I set and what were their outcomes? 

What goals did I set for 2021? 

Have I achieved them? If so, how have they impacted on my business?

Is my next goal(s) still relevant? Do I need to set new goals?

What have been my greatest achievements? 

What am I most proud of? 

How can I build on this successes to set future goals?

What have been my biggest lessons? 

How can I use my experiences to plan my next steps? 

What can I repeat? What can I do differently?

Start with the end in mind

At the end of 2021, how would you like your business to look? 

What would you like to have achieved? 

How do you want to feel?

Write your goals down

You are more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down and refer to them often.

Keeping them visible will help boost motivation and accountability

Know why your goals matter

As Simon Sinek says, “Start with the why.” 

The goals you set should be important to you and align with your business purpose and passion.

Set goals that will excite, inspire and motivate you. 

As our businesses evolve, so will our goals. It is important that our goals are flexible to adapt to circumstances, sometimes beyond our control and to build resilience.
