Goal Setting Reduced Me To Tears

I set my 2023 goals, then excitedly started crunching numbers to figure out my action plan…

… then promptly burst into tears.

Because no matter how I massaged the numbers, there literally weren’t enough hours in the day to reach my goals.

It’s hard to describe how helpless and hopeless I felt. The sheer panic in the pit of my stomach took my breath away.

Finally, forcing myself to take a deep breath, my thoughts clarified.

The truth is, there aren’t enough hours in the day to reach my goals in the future, if I pursue my goals the way I have in the past.

Was I was going to have to completely reformulate my business? (gulp!)

Luckily the answer came to me quickly and with a rhyme:

Elevate, don’t recreate.

Yes. Yes. YESSSSS.

Because I do not have time to add 3 new networking events to my schedule or triple my referral generation activity. But with planning, I can make small, quality-elevating adjustments so I can reach my goals without working nights and weekends.

Elevate messaging.

Elevate team.

Elevate client care.

Elevate speaking standards.

Elevate mindset.

Stay tuned: I’ll be blogging about the steps I take so you can follow along.

Founder Mary Cravets started Simply Get Clients because she saw small business owners complicating growing their businesses. Or falling victim to the "build it and they will come" myth. So she developed the simple structure to cut through all the noise of social media, "experts", online funnels, advertising and more to focus on the central problem of business owners: getting more clients. And you know what? There is NOT a one-size-fits-all solution.
