Business development books and business consultants caution you not to take a step without goal setting. They tell you that goal setting is a vital undertaking for anyone who is serious about their business and that you need to have a clearly defined set of goals to ensure your success and without them you risk failure. Yet, according to my survey of small business owners, 87% do not use goals to ensure their business success! Why do so many smart people with excellent products and business potential avoid goal setting?
Your true goals are your objectives you intend to achieve. It starts with developing your visions and values into tasks that you can easily accomplish each day until you achieve the main goal. The master skill to success is to set goals and make plans to achieve such goals. Without mastering the skill of goal setting and developing action plans, you may not be able to fully utilize your potential or achieve any goal in life. All major accomplishments involve a sequence of steps.
