Listen to New England Patriots’ Quarterback Tom Brady and…
1) When Achieving Your Goals, Eliminate Distractions
To not get distracted from achieving your goals created in the business plan, businesses have to remember to maintain focus and increase concentration. Distractions are where a business plan begins to go wrong. Be cautious of taking on too many tasks at one time, and instead, stick to the main course of action. Recently, New England Patriots’ Quarterback, Tom Brady had a public appearance at Salem State University and provided inspiring insight on the topic of career goals. Tom Brady’s career game plan, contrary to the norm, ensures that having a backup plan is not always the most efficient plan of action. Having a second business plan requires splitting attention between the initial goal, and the alternative course of action. By doing so, you are limiting prioritization of reaching the ultimate goal.
2) When Achieving Your Goals, No Negativity Allowed
It is important not to question the outcome of success and to avoid negative talk. Allowing yourself to think of having to resort to an alternate plan, can lead to decreased motivation and settling for less than the deserved level of achievement. It is simple: no fear and no distractions, just dedication. If you finally reach the end, and did not achieve the goal that you wanted, then regroup.
3) When Achieving Your Goals, Display Confidence
Be careful not to get sidetracked by other tasks. It is important to have checkpoints along the way, but to not veer off track after a small success. The checkpoints serve as part of achievement motivation. Motivation and achievement go hand in hand. Motivation gets to you to achievements, but each small achievement along the way provides continuous motivation. Another technique to not get distracted when following your business action plan, is to envision the satisfaction that will be experienced once the goal is achieved. Refusing to have a fallback option is what many entrepreneurs swear was the key to their success. Plan B interferes with Plan A, but not if you don’t have a Plan B in the first place. Your strategies to reach the goals can always change, but not the ending achievement itself. Also, keeping focus on one achievement leads to an increased level of confidence. Some perceive having a second or third plan as being prepared, but others view this as assuming that he/she does not have the confidence that the main plan will succeed.
4) When Achieving Your Goals, Optimism is a Prerequisite
If the 199th draft pick, New England Patriots’ Tom Brady, could lead his team to four winning championships with this tactic in effect, your business can use this goal planning technique to reach its’ highest potential, too. Have a desired goal and don’t stop until to get there. Always know that there is room for improvement. Tom Brady, who rose up to be one of the best NFL quarterbacks. insists that optimism is a key factor in reaching your goals. Although there are endless career opportunities, be sure the one you get to, is the one that aligns with your goal settings. Listen to the ‘Greatest of All Time’, Tom Brady’s advice and be sensible, be confident, and be successful.
