A Goal is a Dream with an Action Plan.

Goals must be ‘SMART’: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely.  We’ll take a look at some examples in a moment.  First, write down the five areas of life to set and achieve goals: 

Family, Financial, Physical, Mental/Spiritual, Educational.

Note: Don’t strive for perfect balance in the five areas.  Naturally, you’ll have big goals in some areas, and micro goals in others.  Your goals will be upgraded as you achieve them.

Let’s take a deep dive into the most obvious one for most people: FINANCIAL.

Most agents say: “I want to / need to save more money.”

As stated, this is simply a dream.  To turn it into a goal, let’s apply the ‘SMART’ rules, so it can become a GOAL.  Here are the questions to ask yourself (a great coach can help you with this!)

(We’ll ask the questions and then show you an example plan)

1.   Be specific and measurable about your financial goal.  How much money?  Why that much?  What’s that amount based on?  A reserve fund of 6 months, or a downpayment for your next house?

2.   Make your goal attainable.  Is that amount possible?  How many transactions would it take to get there, based on your average net commission?  How does that compare to your averages currently?

3.   Make your goal realistic.  How realistic is your goal? Is it 2x what you know you can do, or 100x that goal? Should you make your goal more incremental so it’s more realistic? 

4.   Make your goal timely.  By when will you accomplish your goal?

5.   Formulate your plan. What has to happen for you to achieve the goal?  What skills must you obtain or upgrade to be successful? If you’re not sure, it’s probably time to get some help through Premier Coaching.

6.   Write down the plan. Share it with your coach.  

7.   Create a daily schedule that reflects your goals and the actions necessary to achieve them.

For example (after you’ve answered the above questions):

You started with a dream of saving more money.  Now that it’s a goal, here’s what that looks like:

You will save $60,000 to a savings account by the end of the year.  That’s 6 months of reserves, based on a monthly personal overhead of $10,000/month.  You’ll achieve this by closing 6 additional transactions this year with an average of $10,000 net to you.  That’s on top of the 12 deals you need to do to pay your overhead, so you’ll do 18 deals this year, 12 to pay your bills, and 6 more to finally have some reserves.

(Adjust accordingly!).  

Now that your goal is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely, you’ll need to figure out the PLAN to back it up.  

That’s what we cover in Premier Coaching.
