Ever felt like you’re alone on your journey to success? As someone who loves discussing goals, I can tell you, it’s a challenge we all face. And guess what? You’re not alone. In fact, over 41 million Americans are solopreneurs. That’s a lot, right?

The Power of Setting Goals

Before we jump into the ‘how’, let’s talk about ‘why’. Setting goals gives you:

  • Direction
  • Motivation

A reason to wake up excited every morning!

Goals can be long-term (3-5 years), medium-term (1-3 years), or short-term (less than a year).

You can even break them down to monthly, weekly, or daily targets.

And remember, the best goals are SMART:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound

For instance, instead of saying “I will write a book”, say “I will release my book in 2024.”

Notice the difference? The latter is more precise and exciting!

Visualizing Your Success

Everyone wants success. But there’s a secret: Successful people not only want it, they can see it.

Whether it’s a private jet, writing a book, or anything else, you should be able to visualize your dream.

My advice? Create a vision board. It’s a fun way to keep your goals in sight.

Breaking Down the Big Goals

Every big dream can be split into smaller tasks.

If your dream is to write a book, start with creating a dedicated folder on your computer.

Don’t worry about the details like title and cover yet. Just start brainstorming and commit to a word count per day.

Pro-tip: Use apps like Google Docs to jot down ideas anytime, anywhere!

Accountability is Key

You might be going solo, but it doesn’t mean you’re on your own.

Develop daily routines and habits that align with your goals.

Write them down, set reminders, and most importantly, find an accountability partner.

This person will be your cheerleader, but also the one who nudges you when you’re falling behind. And remember, always choose someone who isn’t afraid to be honest with you.

Lastly, always set aside time to review and adjust your goals. And when you achieve them, big or small, celebrate! It’s a journey, after all, and every step is worth appreciating.

To all my fellow solopreneurs, keep dreaming, keep hustling, and keep setting those goals.

The road might be long, but with the right steps, it’s a journey worth taking.
