Using business goals for motivation
Thinking of starting your own business? Whether its lash extension related or not, we highly recommend setting goals that will keep you motivated. Just like having a target board in front of you - if you can see it and know what it is you want to achieve, your chances of success are bound to be multiplied.
The goals you create should challenge you. Although goals that are easy to achieve create motivation to keep going, a goal that's too easy may quickly have you bored and disinterested. Goals need to be in between being too easy, and too difficult. If your goals are simply not achievable, you will feel discouraged and this will also cause you to lose interest. For example, a realistic goal Lash Boss Melbourne has achieved was “I will gain five new customers for every week of this month.” Whereas an unrealistic goal (depending on the size and nature of the business), might be “I will have 100 new customers every hour.” This type of goal is highly improbable for a newly established business and will not set you up for success.
Goals are powerful and they can help focus your attention and organise your time. You will be able to prioritize between which goals are most important for each step of growing your business. But in order for them to be successful, you need to make sure your entire team is on the same page. Feeling supported elevates the chances of success and can boost motivation and morale. Although we're in the lash business, we believe having achievable, timely and measurable goals is important in any industry.
At Lash Boss Melbourne, we are passionate about what we do and believe setting realistic goals from the start is what has helped us reach where we are today. We find that when we achieve one of our goals, it makes us feel great about setting and pursuing more goals. We are inspired to keep pushing ourselves to the next level. Why not give goal setting a go yourself and see how a little bit of motivation can increase workplace morale?
