A goal setting worksheet is essentially a template you can use to set actionable goals.
The secret to achieving success in your home business endeavors rests on how you write your goal statements, and whether or not they are actionable.
For example, if you have a dream or vision of creating a residual income of say, $5,000 per month in your network marketing business, it is not enough to simply say, “I will have a residual income of $5,000 per month within the next six months.”
While such a goal is admirable, and perhaps even possible in the home based network marketing industry, it is not actionable. By that, I mean it does not specify the daily activities you will complete to achieve that objective.
And this is where a goal setting worksheet comes into play. Let’s start with the same vision statement above and turn it into something you can actually achieve.
Your first step is to create the goal statement itself. Don’t be afraid to think big here. Afterall, the purpose of this exercise is not to limit your potential. As Richard Bach said in his book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, “state your limitations are, and they are yours.”
The second step is to break your objective into tangible parts that can be measured. For example, within your home based network marketing opportunity, you should know from your compensation plan how many people and how much business volume is required to make a specific amount of income. Let’s assume for this article that you will need $20,000 per month in commissionable business volume, and that on average, your team members buy $100 per month in products.
Using those numbers, you now know it will require 200 team members on autoship to make your desired residual income. If you divide 200 by the timeline in your objective, you will need to sponsor, or help your downline sponsor, an average of just over 1 new team member per day.
You now have an actionable goal setting worksheet, and have clearly defined what it will take to achieve your definition of success in your home based network marketing business. All you have to do now is take action and find those leads.
