One reason most experts know that goal setting requires specifics is that they also know that when you measure things and track things, you can then discover how to move those numbers in the direction you want them to go.
Want to build your list? State it in very specific numbers how big you want to grow it, how fast you want to grow it, and exactly the steps you’ll talk to accomplish it based on your research. Then track it. Analyze what you’ve tracked, adjust, continue, and repeat. As you track the effects of your actions, you can improve and correct.
One thing to start tracking right now is your income and expenses every single day. The great thing about this is that you can track using an old-fashioned spreadsheet, or you can even just use a small notebook that you keep with you. But you can also use fancy software that can make this process super easy if you want. Either way, it’s not going to take too much extra money or time out of your day to do this. But the results will astound you.
What you need to know about money is:
Things you track will move in the direction you want them to. That works with weight (weigh in daily), with personal finances, and also when it comes to your business. Track what money is coming in, where it’s coming from, and what money is going out. Track the where, what, when, why, and how of that number so that you can learn more ways to generate income and hold yourself accountable for expenditures.
