Why should you bother developing a plan?

I trust your Christmas was all you hoped it could be.

I must admit there was a little overindulging on my behalf.

But what are holidays for? Right?

Back to limited eating of the sometimes food and up the daily exercise. (Well, as soon as we have finished celebrating bringing the new year in that is 😏)

When I wrote my goals for 2023 in November, health and fitness were top of the list. 

Holidays, family time, and of course business results followed closely behind. 

When setting goals, the first priority is of course to write them down.

If you don’t write your goals, they are just wishes and as fleeting as the wind.

In the Harvard Business School MBA study on goal setting, the graduating class was asked a single question about their goals in life. The question was this:

Have you set written goals and created a plan for their attainment? 

Prior to graduation, it was determined that:

  • 84% of the entire class had set no goals at all
  • 13% of the class had set written goals but had no concrete plans
  • 3% of the class had both written goals and concrete plans

The results?

Well, you’ve likely somewhat guessed it. 10 years later, the 13% of the class that had set written goals but had not created plans, were making twice as much money as the 84% of the class that had set no goals at all.

However, the apparent kicker is that the 3% of the class that had both written goals and a plan, were making ten times as much as the rest of the 97% of the class. 

Writing goals is vital, and so is having a plan.

What results do you want to achieve in 2023?

Do you want to be part of the 3%?
