You may see goals as somewhat limiting or stifling your creativity. You may take the position that if you commit to a goal you must stubbornly pursue it and close the door to other opportunities that may arise. While these are the most common reasons for foot_dragging, when it comes to goal setting, the reasons for not setting goals are almost endless. I even had one lovely lady tell me that she didn\'t set goals because she was afraid that if she wrote them down she would jinx her future success. She thought it would be \"bad juju\"! We can be very creative when it comes to finding excuses for not attending to this vitally important task. When you think about it, with all these reasons to avoid goal setting, why should you even set goals? Small business owners, business book authors and consultants are missing a vitally important piece of information about goals: they have a magnetic quality. That brings me to reason #7. This is the most important, yet seldom recognized, reason small business owners resist setting goals. You don\'t realize the power and full benefits of Magnetic Goals. When you define your own set of Magnetic Goals, use them as a tool, rather than just a \"I have to do because smart folks tell me to\" exercise, you will see for yourself the awesome power of Magnetic Goals to draw success to you.
Measurable _ Once you have your main goal specified you must break it down into bite_sized measurable chunks. In the previous example your goal was to earn บꯠ per month through network marketing in about 2 yrs. Using SMART goal setting you can then ask \"what work habit will I need to get to point B?\" Let\'s say you have to sponsor at least 2 reps in your network marketing business every month to build a team large enough to generate your desired income in 2 yrs. Breaking that down even further let\'s say you needed to have 30╄ leads to sponsor 2 reps. That would mean you would need to get an average of 2 leads/day coming into your business. So you must get at least 2 leads per day reach your end destination of บk/month and financial freedom. Do you see how you start from the big goal and break it up into small, measurable daily action steps? Like the old adage goes \"inch by inch it\'s a cinch!\"
