REACHING FOR STARPOWER: List Your Business Goals To Activate Success

Reaching For Starpower with Barbara Marynowski

When considering what we want to accomplish professionally, especially in the realm of celebrity endorsements and associations, we often brainstorm or daydream, but how often do we write these ideas down and take them from mere thoughts to actions?

Making a list is one thing, but taking action to make those items become reality is quite another, as I'm sure we can all agree. However, have you ever considered the importance of this first step; the impact the action of making a list actually has? You are literally choosing to take your idea from an invisible thought to physical form as words on a page – seemingly simple, but important nonetheless. We have begun to explore this concept in previous articles (for review, please visit the archives).

The first thing I'd like to highlight is that your list is a living thing - it is going to change and grow as you and your business change and grow. Something that you wanted to accomplish last month may no longer work for you today (or maybe you already checked it off!) and you've had a full month to think about new things that you'd like to accomplish. Remember - you are not limited and since it's YOUR list, it's okay to change it as YOU see fit. Make it better, make it more intricate, make it something that makes YOU happy.

Sometimes having a list can be overwhelming, though. Where do you start? Which item should go first? Is one more important to you than the rest? There is no right or wrong answer to those questions - the most important action is that you are actually taking a step.

My suggestion is to pick one thing and focus on it. When we try to multi-task it's often more work and frustration in the long run than if we just focus on one thing at a time. When we have one thing that we can devote our attention to, we are less likely to be distracted or have our thoughts and actions diluted by trying to do too much at once. This is also an idea you can try in other areas of your life - personally, at home, in your relationships, etc.

As you go, take notice of how you focus on one goal at a time. What steps work best for you to accomplish what you want? What do you like? What can you improve on? What will make it easier to reach your next goal? Everyone's answers will be different since we all have a unique way of how we work best and what works best for our business.

I'm looking forward to hearing your success stories.

Best wishes,

Barbara H. Marynowski
