Goal setting is a powerful process that makes you seriously consider what you want to accomplish (long-term and short-term) with your creative business. It helps you focus your attention, stay motivated, and drive for success.

If you’ve not set your business goals yet this year, now is the perfect time to take stock and reflect on what you’ve achieved with your creative business so far – and what you want to do next.

Review your business progress

To begin with, ask yourself… Did you achieve what you set out to do last year? Did you exceed your goals? Were there any hurdles that got in the way? Did your goals change during the year?

Don’t beat yourself up if you haven’t yet achieved what you wanted to. As long as you continue to build on what you’ve already done, progress is progress! Use your answers to help you map out some new goals over the next 12 months. Then break these down into smaller, quarterly goals that’ll help you get to your long-term objectives.
