I welcome you into the new month, so listen up young Nigerians!!!
Being alive in itself is an indication that we are not done yet! Whatever assignment we have been commissioned to fulfill, the availability of breath suggests we have been given another chance to have a go at it, no matter what level we currently are.
There is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, it will sprout again at the scent of water.
As you must have heard severally, half-time is considered a time for assessment, measurement, and self-appraisal. The goal is not to wallow in the regrets of what could have-should have-would have been, but to use the rear-view mirror to evaluate the effects of decisions (or the lack of them) that were taken in the first half so as to put measures in place to correct, reinforce or abandon such actions
But what are you doing?
I hope you have not started the month the way most people do.
That is, just starting it without setting any clear goals and plans.
One of the major reasons why people fail is that they do not have clear goals.
That is followed by the fact that they do not have clear plans on how to accomplish those goals.
And also NOT taking action on those plans.
But it all starts from…
NOT Having clear goals.
1. Have clear goals.
2. Have clear plans on how you intend to achieve those goals.
3. Start taking massive action on those plans.
I know you have probably heard this before.
But it is my responsibility to remind you.
We all need reminders.
I am actually reminding myself.
So, if you are yet to set clear goals for this month…
STOP what you are doing right now.
Pick a pen and paper.
And set your goals right now.
Make it simple.
Just set goals in 4 areas of your life.
(1) What do you want to achieve financially?
E.g. Make 50 sales of a particular product.
(2) What do you want to achieve health wise?
E.g. Drop 4 kg of excess weight.
(3) What do you want to achieve in terms of self development?
E.g. read 3 books
(4) What do you want to achieve in terms of your relationships?
E.g. Call your mom everyday this month
These are just examples but I hope you got the idea.
Once you have the goals written, make sure you write out how you plan to achieve them.
If your goal is to sell 50 copies of a product, then how do you intend to do so?
Be very clear about this.
I have to go now, so the question is…what are your July goals and how do you plan on having then?
Food for thought, but all in alll…May July be good to us all
