If you will do small business did you may realize how important is to set goals and if you work with others who are also in business with you then you know it is important for the whole team to stay motivated and to set objectives. You see, in business it is a competitive environment like sports and dually get out what to put in. If you fail to play out you have inadvertently planned to fail.
Many people dream of a business of their own and many of those who take the plunge to start their own business and risk their own capital and hard work dream of rags to riches and living the good life. However, simply dreaming of all these wonderful things that you may have in the future is not necessarily going to bring them to you. You must set goals.
An interesting case in point; Reverend Doctor Martin Luther king Jr. had a dream. It still has not been accomplished yet, some day hopefully it will. But had he had a goal with quarterly objectives that dream may have been accomplished sooner. You can sit back a dream about conquering your regional market, but if you want to win that market you need a definite and definitive game plan.
What you did yesterday is great, what you will do tomorrow may seem too many to be impossible to others. Your only enemy is not the competition it is procrastination. You must believe in yourself in your team and if you want to achieve the dream you must set goals. Consider this in 2006.
