Often we have more than one dream or idea we want to pursue. Its a beautiful thing because it speaks to how infinite our imaginations are; how infinite the Creator can work through us. But having more than one dream can sometimes be overwhelming, causing us to begin to think that they are not possible to achieve. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is possible for you to achieve them, you just need a plan.
Planning will help you think your idea through and identify the steps that need to be taken to make your dream come true. Planning also allows you to see where you need help. You can’t do it all by yourself, nor do you need to.
Write your idea out. This will help you see it clearer and think it through. Then break it down into phases and steps and create a S.M.A.R.T. plan. Using a S.M.A.R.T. plan allows you to lay out very specific steps that should be realistic and reasonable, and the progress of which can be tracked and measured.
Specific The steps should be very specific
Measurable How will you measure the success of the steps you have laid out?
Achievable The steps should be reasonable and realistic in order to increase the chances of success
Relevant The steps should be relevant to your goal
Trackable You can track the progress of the steps and the results.
Once you’ve completed the steps, build another SMART plan for the next phase. S.M.A.R.T. plans help you see your progress and give you a sense of accomplishment.
The You 3.0 Coaching program can help develop your S.M.A.R.T. plan and hold you accountable from week to week to help you reach your goal.
