You already know that I am a fan and regular reader of Michael Hyatt…but you might have missed his recent post by this title. Catch “What Are Your Options When You Are About to Miss a Big Goal” and you won’t be disappointed.
Here is an excerpt from his post:
I don’t like missing goals. Our campaign target was to add one thousand new members to the site. Based on previous experience, we should have added five hundred members by the end of the fourth day. We were at 256.
I knew things had started slowly. At the end of the first day—usually one of the biggest—we had only added 134 members to our ranks. Based on our forecasting algorithm, we’d be lucky to add five hundred total members.
I tried to ignore these early warning signs…“Maybe this sales curve is just different from previous ones,” we kept saying to one another. However, we all knew in our guts we were in trouble. It was time to make a decision.
It is easy to resist making a decision when our projects are veering out of control. But he gives 3 simple reactions to take when we see the warning signs. Give him a try.
Thanks for listening!
