It will be easier to achieve them.

The clearer your goals are, the easier it will be to achieve them. The more specific your goal, the more attainable it becomes. So get detailed when creating your business goals. Think about what you really WANT to achieve and then list out all the specifics. “

Create milestones which allow you to recognize and celebrate your smaller successes and achievements. When you do this, you don’t get discouraged and stop taking action. Instead, you’re inspired and follow through taking all the actions you need to achieve your goal.

Setting goals for a micro-entrepreneurs is easier said than done. Once customers start calling and deadlines loom, those wishful goals soon get lost in the daily grind of completing the tasks at hand,” says Terri Zwierzynski, CEO and founder of Solo-E.com. “The goals solo business owners (which make up 78% of all businesses in the US) set in 2011 – and their success in achieving them — are crucial to the nation’s economic recovery. According to a recent business survey, more than 80 percent of small business owners admit they don’t monitor their goal-setting or enlist the proper coaches and advisors to help them achieve their goals.”

Zwierzynski recommend a few tips in setting and achieving goals in 2011 for small businesses and self employed professionals.

* Choose meaningful goals. “Remember that the purpose of goal setting is to move us forward and spur positive change,” says Zwierzynski. “If your goal isn’t worthwhile, why achieve it?”

* Make your goals specific and measurable. “It’s not enough to say, ‘I want to get more customers”. Create goals that have very specific results, get as detailed as possible.

* Create a plan. Break your goals down into small steps or milestones. Steps and milestones will serve as signs that you are on the right road, keep you motivated, taking action and help propel you forward. Ultimately it will help you cross that goal off your New Year’s list.
