Brilliance-Based Blog Panel: What Are Your SMART Goals for Q1 2012?

Today we present Topic #6 of the Brilliance-Based Blog Panel series, in which some of my favorite Brilliance-Based Businesswomen come together to share their perspectives on topics near and dear to the hearts and minds of women entrepreneurs.  I welcome you to add to the dialogue by commenting below on today’s topic.

As Brilliance-Based Businesswomen, what are your SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Rewarding and Time-bound) for the first quarter of 2012?   

Stefanie Frank – Initiative Based Writing

My first quarter SMART Goals are:

  • Average $8500 per month in revenue in my business
  • Train 7-14 hours per week for Ironman Boise 70.3 and the Ironman World Championship 70.3
  • Take every other Friday OFF
  • Eat at least three servings of green vegetables per day

The goal that feels the most scary and challenging is the money – but I know it’s possible based on my January numbers, my marketing plan, and my record of perseverance.

I place high value on health. Hence, the goal to eat three servings of greens each day. Smoothies! Delicious and easy to make!

Food is an area where I tend to struggle and as an entrepreneur and triathlete staying on top of what I eat and when is crucial.

Staying consistent is key to attaining any SMART goal – along with desire. I’ve often revisited goals over the years to make sure they are aligned with what I really want to do and who I want to be in life. From there it’s easy to prioritize my actions, manage my energy, and be picky about how I spend my time.

My Soul Languages are action oriented and I can bog myself down in doing and goal setting.  I was noticing that it was creating a no-win situation in my life and my business. 

So the way I set up SMART goals, I set specific ways I want to feel, connect and be.  This way I know that I will and do meet them.  For instance: this year I set goals for a deeper connection for myself with the Divine, to be more true to myself in relationships and to be of joyful service.

With those everything else seems to fall into place.
