Some people say there is too much to do with too little time and some people say just the opposite. None will say that you can transform your business in hundred days.
In business terms a span of hundred days is actually very short. However, many people underestimate the power of setting a deadline and working towards meeting that deadline. It may be a huge goal but it is achievable within the set period of time. The only thing you need is focus.
Here are a few steps for you to follow to achieve your huge goal within hundred days:
Set a Deadline
You should start off by setting a deadline even before you set the goal. You shouldn’t focus on the goal and try estimating how long it might take for you to accomplish it. Mark the calendar hundred days hence and set your goal.
Spread the Word
Tell everybody involved in your business including investors, partners, and employees about your goal. This will pressurize you [read motivate you] to work harder to reach your goal. Absolutely no businessman wants to publicize something and not do it. You will not want to do that either, for sure. External pressure usually brings out a highly ambitious side in people.
Make it Evident
You should constantly remind yourself and everyone involved about the deadline. You may simply cross of dates each day to keep a track. Make it highly evident so that people who enter your office also notice that deadline. All these steps will keep reminding you about it. Your mind will instantly remind you to starting working immediately.
Everyone involved in your plan or goal has to know very clearly what his or her role is. Be very clear about the contributions that each has to make and the responsibilities that he or she carries.
Don’t get carried away by what-if and wish-to. You have one huge goal to accomplish and all your thoughts must be on it. You can procrastinate the others for later – after the hundred-day task is achieved.
Especially in the final twenty days you will have to work really hard to achieve your goal but once you do, the satisfaction will be immense. Experts recommend that you immediately celebrate your triumph because you undertook a huge responsibility and saw it through.
Focus and discipline will make seemingly impracticable goals achievable.
Give yourself hundred days and set a big goal to be accomplished. This will help you work hard, be motivated, and actually discover just how ambitious you can be. Focus will help you work better than you expected.
