In a competitive industry, goal setting is one of the most important elements in maintaining success. This is what we’ve learned through the course of Bear Claw Events, Inc.’s ongoing growth. Matt, our firm’s President, stated, “It’s not enough for a business to remain stable, even when things are going very well. That’s why we continually set the bar higher, for individual development and our company’s overall success.”
To make our goal-setting efforts as effective as possible, we prefer to use the SMART approach. This acronym stands for specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound. Matt added, “Each of these five elements is essential in turning our objectives into realities. We keep them in mind when pursuing personal improvement and planning big projects for the brands we promote.”
Being as specific as possible with our goals means we can take meaningful first steps toward achieving them. Making sure our objectives are measurable allows us to make adjustments to our processes. The fact that our goals are attainable and realistic gives us the steady motivation we need to follow through to successful ends.
When it comes to the time-bound element of the SMART system, we’ve found that firm deadlines add accountability. We share our projected completion dates throughout the Bear Claw Events, Inc. office so that we’re even more motivated to stay on the right track.
We’re committed to putting well-defined targets in place. Learn more about our goal-setting strategies by following Bear Claw Events, Inc. on Twitter.
