For today, you’re probably thinking about what you’re going to do in 2020 and how you’re going to set your goals. A lot of people are talking about this right now. First of all, I want you to think about how you finished up 2019. Did anything move in a way it shouldn’t have? Go back and look at your plan to figure out what you did or didn’t do. What did you feel good about and what didn’t feel as good? Now, it’s time to refocus and make sure you meet your goals in 2020.

Now, I want to give you three easy steps that I like to repeat year after year. I’m sure you’ll hear me talk about these a lot over the course of the year, like a broken record. These help me reach my goals every year. For example, in 2019, I wanted to make at least three trips to the United States in order to build a network. I wanted to create at least five new relationships so I could continue to grow my business. I also wanted to deepen some of the relationships I had already established.

Looking back, I’m happy to say I was able to accomplish my goals. I was able to build new relationships and deepen a lot of old ones. I attended a couple of seminars and events in the United States, some of which included the Real Estate Guys and their Sales Bootcamp. There was also a syndication mentoring club. I joined and had a meeting with Brad Sumrok, who talked about apartment investing. I also recently had a chance to go to the New Orleans Investment Conference.

But the most important part is that I had a clear plan, I executed the plan, and now I’m able to look back and see that it was accomplished. Now, not every single aspect was accomplished, but I wanted to share this with you anyway and be transparent.

So, with that in mind, let’s get to the three points. The first way to ensure you reach your goals in 2020 is to be clear about why you are doing it. Make sure you know what your goal is and why you want to accomplish it. To this point, one of the people I like to follow is a guy named Simon Sinek, who has a book called Start With Why. When everything is difficult, you need to be able to cling to the reason why you’re doing it.

The second way to accomplish your goals is to make sure they are SMART. That stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. If we take my previous goal as an example, it’s specific because I said I was going to travel to the United States in order to build new relationships and deepen others. It’s also measurable because it would be easy to see whether or not I travelled to the United States and whether or not I established five new relationships. My goal also needed to be achievable. As of today, it’s pretty easy to get to the United States from Europe. I also had to make sure it was relevant, which means it had to be related to creating and building my business. It was also time-bound because I wanted to accomplish it in 2019.

Make sure your goals are SMART. That stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.

The third way to ensure you can accomplish your goal is to make sure you have an accountability partner. This is someone who will ensure you talk to them about what you’re doing. They will tell you when you’re doing things well and give you honest feedback when you can improve things. An accountability partner can be a friend, a family member, or a coach or mentor. They can either be paid or someone who will do it in exchange for a favor from you. They can also be someone you know who is willing to help.

So, to be clear about how you can ensure you accomplish your goals: One, be very clear about why you’re doing something. Two, make sure your goals are SMART. Three, have an accountability partner. And with that, I wish you a successful, happy, and healthy 2020. I am confident that with these three tips, you will be able to create a structured goal.
