It is obvious by reading these posts, that These home business owners do not either know how to set goals, or are looking past The process of goal setting. Every organization, small business or large corporation should manage by objectives, systematic performance improvement and target setting. A home business owner should be no different. Let's look at some of the reasons for not setting goals.

  • To much pressure to accomplish their goals;

  • They are not sure of what they want to accomplish;

  • They don't know how to set goals.

None of the above reasons are valid for not setting goals for your home business. Only unrealistic goals apply pressure on an individual. Fear of failure usually arise from a feeling that we lack control over our future. However, setting long and short term goals real allow us to control our own futures. Goals raise confidence levels in that they show you in a concrete way that success is possible. Achievement of short term goals makes confidence grow and give momentum for greater achievement. The goal setting process allows people to work out exactly what they want and what is important to them.

Setting goals is not complicated. It can be challenging, but the process of goal setting can be of value to you in building excitement and commitment, which are important factors in achieving success.
