Planning your 90 day goals doesn't have to be scary!


I’m a big believer in 90-day goals. Cutting up the year into manageable chunks of 90-days and then sitting back and looking at what you want to achieve in the next 90-days.

Sometimes looking at the whole financial year can feel overwhelming. Especially if we are then asked to set tasks and create actions alongside. I find it difficult to know what I’m cooking for dinner tomorrow, let alone what actions I’m going to take to grow my business in November!

So, breaking the year down into 4 bite-sized chunks makes perfect sense for me.

I’ve mentioned the Moroccan saying ‘slowly, slowly put the camel in the pot’ a few times and for me, this sums up this concept perfectly.

There are those dreams we have. Where we want our business to be in 5 to 10 years time. Holidays we want to go on. Houses we want to own.

And then there are the goals that will get us there.

Yes dream big, put those dreams out into the universe.

But then look at how you can create actions to move you in the direction you want to go in.
So what can you realistically achieve in the next 90 days?

Can you think of 2 main goals that you want to achieve that will move your business and your life forward? It’s impossible to do everything, so want can you do in the next 3 months.

You could start by writing down all the things you’d love to achieve before the end of the next financial year. Can this be broken down into small tasks, and then which of these could you tackle first over the next 90 days?

I like to make 1 personal and 1 professional goal.

And I’ve made mistake before because I didn’t make them measurable and I didn’t really map out how I could achieve them – so guess what? They didn’t happen!

So once you have your goal, you’ll need to really define how you can measure when you’ve successfully done completed that goal. What does success look like?

How can you measure if you’ve done it? So weights, times, figures, places – whatever it is, make sure you know when you’ve got there and done it!

Then break that goal down into actionable chunks. If you want to travel to San Francisco, then you’ll need to buy flights, book accommodation, maybe call people you know who live there, save money, plan what you’re going to do, make sure you can have the time off, get a visa – all those things!

Well, my head is spinning already, but if I can decide which of those I need to do first and assign a day out of the 90 days to do it, then it seems a lot more manageable.

And it’s the same with your business. Want to double your email list?

You’re going to have to make sure you have a good email system, create a lead capture tool, create a landing page, set up a email nurture sequence, design some graphics, write a blog post, share on social media, create your Facebook ads and advertise your lead capture.  What would you tackle first?

Also, think about who you might need to get you there? Do you need to learn something new? Is there software you could use? Do you need someone in your team to pull this off?

And make sure it’s measurable. You know what double your email list looks like, so you know if you’ve made it and you have a set of task to get you there!

Treat the tasks you need to achieve your goal as non-negotiable. Book actual dates with yourself in your diary to do them and let nothing get in your way.

Go on, you’ve got this!

What 90 days goals could you have up your sleeve?

We all want to grow our businesses and make them more sustainable – what do you need to do to do that?
