I have a feeling that 2014 is going to be a year of accomplishments. What 3 things would you like to accomplish this year? Sell 24 homes? Build a house? Learn a new language? Teach a class? What ever you decide, do you have a plan to achieve your goals?Have you heard of the GPS goal setting plan, or sometimes known as the 1-3-5. The G is for your one Goal, P is for your 3 priorities in achieving your goal, and the S is for the 5 strategies or activities you need to do. In other words, it is like a road map to help you reach your goals. Once you have a clear picture of what you want, then you can organize your activities around it.
Here is my example
Goal – lose 15 lbs
Through Food Intake Through Exercise Through Attitude
Limit Carbs Walk 1 mile a day Set a deadline
Dont buy junk food Stand when possible Display pics of swim suit
Portion control Use stairs vs elevator Listen positive affirmation
Try new low cal recipes Strengthening exercises Weigh & measure weekly
No Fast Food Family outings-swim, bike Dont beat yourself up if you cheat a little
hikes, skate Just get back to your commitment the next day
See, its easy, and now I have a daily plan of what I have to do and you can do this for anything you want to accomplish. This plan is especially easy for Real Estate Sales with the Goal being the number of houses you want to sell or the amount of money you want to earn. The Priorities could be 1. Buyers, 2. Sellers, 3. Leverage and knowledge. Strategies=- Sphere, internet leads, open houses, sign calls, prospecting, expireds, etc.
I would be happy to help you develop your GPS for 2014, Just give me a call or shoot me an email.
