Do you run a business? Are you following a plan for the year? How about for the quarter? If so, now is the time to be looking at course corrections to ensure you reach your goals.

Hello there. My name is Doug Barra. And, as I record this video, it’s just the beginning of June. It’s the last month of the second quarter of the year. Now is the time to closely examine your progress towards your quarterly and yearly goals.

Why now?

Because for your quarterly goal, you still have a whole month to make corrections if you are off course for accomplishing it, and for your yearly goal, we are rapidly approaching the midway point of the year. So now is the time to take stock and see if you need to change anything, to still be able to accomplish your goal for the year.

So what do you actually need to do first? Let’s examine your quarterly goals. If you did full planning, as we do, then you broke those goals down to weekly actions to accomplish milestones. If so, take a look now at how you were doing on your actions. Are they actually bringing you to your milestones? If not, what do you need to do or stop doing that will get the actions done or move you closer to the milestone? Now, given your experience with the actions and milestones so far this quarter, do you still believe that you will accomplish the goal with the actions that you listed?

If not, what do you need to change? Always remember your goal is the critical piece. The actions and milestones are your best guesses for accomplishing that goal. So you can change those as you need to. If you didn’t do a full plan, your job is a little harder as you now need to figure out if you’re on track and what you need to do now to accomplish your goals.

Next let’s visit your goals for the year. Since we are now in June, we want to look at our progress closely. Are our quarterly goals sufficiently moving us closer to the goal? Are we closer than we expected? If we are on track, we can congratulate ourselves and move on. If we’re behind, then we need to make our next set of quarterly goals more ambitious. If we’re ahead, do we want to expand our goals for the year?

Our clients go through this sort of planning steps each quarter, and I’m going to be expanding on some of these steps throughout this month. So be sure to subscribe to the channel and click the bell to ensure that you get notified each time we post a new video.
