Episode 88: Are Your Goals Too Big?

Listen On

While growing up, we’re often told that the sky is the limit and we’re encouraged to dream big . . . but how big is too big? When your goals are too large, it’s easy to become discouraged when you don’t achieve the impossible. Join entrepreneurs Hal Elrod and Nick Palkowski as they discuss ways to make sure that your goals are measurable and, most importantly, achievable.

Being successful goes beyond simply visualizing what you want and attracting it to your life. Being overconfident only hurts you in the end when the reality does not meet your expectations. This is not to say that you cannot achieve great things; you can! It just might take longer than you might expect and the road might be a bit bumpy on the road to success.

In this episode, Hal shares three strategies to help you to create smaller, measurable, and achievable goals.

  1. You’ve got to earn the right to set bigger goals by achieving smaller ones.
  2. Break down bigger goals into three smaller goals.
  3. Extend your time frame.

A good reference text to see if your goal is to big is to look back at what you’ve already achieved. If your goal is more than two times larger than your prior achievements, you may want to evaluate your goals. Remember that even elite entrepreneurs fail all the time; failure is a huge part of the game! Being an entrepreneur is all about learning, changing, and adjusting to anything life throws your way.
