Episode 63: Gena Lofton – How to Evaluate Your Goals for Q3 2018

show Sep 28, 2018

Hi Everyone

This weeks episode is dedicated to helping you review and achieve your goals as this is the end of the third quarter of 2018. If you haven’t set any goals yet now is the time. I want to encourage you to visit the store on this website where you can take the complimentary “Escape The Madness Course” which will help you to establish your goals.

You need to write down these goals, and they need to be “S.M.A.R.T.” This means that your goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, promote Responsibility for that goal and have a set Timeline for achieving them. Without these characteristics, you are not as likely to meet them. You need clarity of vision and once you have that everything goes a lot smoother.

For everyone that has established some goals, I would like you to take a moment and assess how you are doing. Are you achieving them or are you exceeding them? If you are having trouble reaching them, then please let me know and feel free to ask questions. I would be happy to give some advice.

This week the Fed increased interest rates. So it would help if you evaluated the effects of increased interest rates on any debt that you may have and how this could influence your financial future.

It would help if you had a team of advisors to achieve your goals. These could include people who are accountants, lawyers, and business associates. Please do not expect that you can get to the finish line entirely on your own. Take advantage of expert advice.

Please feel free to ask any questions that might help you to achieve your goals. Let’s all finish our 2018 plans with a blast!

I want to congratulate everyone that is actively achieving their goals by moving to the right side of the quadrant as quickly as possible.
