How To achieve your goals

Have you ever felt like you were unproductive the entire week?

I have.

Whenever I don’t set my weekly goals and targets at the beginning of my working week, I end up feeling depleted with nothing to show at the end of the week.

It happened to me last week. I don’t even know what I did, but I sure was busy! However, my income was lower than the week before and my goals weren’t met.

I don’t know what happened. It’s sort of vague—eeek!

As solopreneurs, this kind of week is not good. It’s depressing and it makes me feel like a failure.

Ordinarily,  I write my goals and targets at the beginning of the year, and then break it down month by month.

Then every week, I take my monthly plan and write down what I need to do for that week with targets, goals and time-frame.

But I didn’t do that last week. I just kind of wandered from task to task, without any particular direction and goal in mind. Then I decided mid-week that my house needed some freshening up, so I took off and went shopping for a day.

As you can see, one of the toughest things for entrepreneurs is to have self-discipline. We have no boss barking to us the goals and sales targets for the week, so we are left to manage ourselves.


  1. Have a plan—a yearly plan.
  2. Each month, review your previous month’s production and write what you want to accomplish for the upcoming month (based on your yearly plan).
  3. Each Sunday, review your previous week and write your goals, game plan, and to do list for the new week. Add time frames for each item on the list
  4. Before ending your day, review what you’ve accomplish and write your TO DO LIST for the next day.
  5. Celebrate small wins.

When you do this, your priorities become clearer and you end up accomplishing more.
