Writing your goals out is the fun part. Saying you are going to get so much accomplished today is easy. Planning your entire week out may be simple, but where many entrepreneurs tend to fail is being consistent.In order to achieve the level of success you desire you have to be consistent. Remember that goals can’t get accomplished if you aren’t executing. So what’s causing the inconsistency in your life?In order to achieve the level of success you desire you have to be consistent.

1.Your goals are not clear
Be very clear and specific when you set your goals. Instead of saying I want to grow my email list, say I want to create a new lead magnet to grow my email list by 1,000 subscribers this month. Make sure that your goals are specific and measurable and that you include the steps you need to take in order to achieve them.
2. You’re overwhelmed with tasks and don’t know where to start
You have so many goals that you have set and you have no idea where to start. You have to break your goals down. I break my goals down to yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily. Each day I focus on achieving 3 goals and I never list more than 7 tasks on my daily to do list.
3. You lack self-discipline
Now that you are an entrepreneur you have a business to run. You are the boss. You don’t have any checking to make sure the company is operating well because the company is yours. To gain a habit of self-discipline you have to be committed to your goals. Whenever you don’t feel like doing something, replace that thought with a goal reminder. Let’s say you decide to put off completing your landing page. Replace that thought by saying the longer I keep putting off completing my landing page the longer it’ll take me to build my dreams.To gain a habit of self-discipline you have to be committed to your goals.

4. You want fast results
Success doesn’t happen overnight. Just because you’ve been working toward a goal for a couple weeks and you haven’t achieved the results you desire doesn’t mean that it’s time to give up. You have have to be patient. Some of the top entrepreneurs didn’t experience a major shift in their business for a couple years. It has taken some of your favorite bloggers 5-7 years before they were finally recognized for their talents. Are you willing to keep working until you get the results you want?
5. Your biggest goals are last on your list
You have to stop waiting until the last minute to work on your biggest goals. Checking off your smaller items may make you feel like you are making progress, but it’s small progress. I don’t mean to dim your light and I know some progress is better than none, but if you are only completing small tasks how will you ever experience big results. It’s better to have more small items sitting on your to do list than bigger ones. So begin to start working on your bigger goals first and it’ll make your overall goals so much more easier to accomplish.
6. Lack time management
You can’t just set goals and make to do lists. You have to set time blocks to work on every task and deadlines to complete each goal. Be sure to set break times throughout the day so you don’t get burned out. Focus on one goal at a time and avoid multitasking. You actually get less done when you multitask and you aren’t able to produce your best work because your focus is in too many places.
You have to get an accountability partner to hold you accountable to your goals and help you stay committed. I talk with my accountability partner about twice a day. Once to update on how my day is going and my progress and at night to share exactly what I completed. Each night we also share what we will be working on the following day. If you’re looking for an accountability partner you can join my Members Only Community today.
