Setting long term goals is necessary for success. To build momentum and keep motivated, use sprint goals. In the Businetiks system, a sprint goal is a quick, short deadline goal that moves you closer to your larger goal. How can you create sprint goals?
- Use a short deadline: Where long-term goals can take months or years, a sprint goal deadline should be no more than a day. For example, if your long-term goal is to make $1 million in sales this tear, your sprint goal could be to make ten sales goals today.
- Briefly describe your goal: A sprint goal can be described in a few sentences at most.
- Relate your sprint goal to a long-term goal: The purpose of your sprint goals are to reach bigger goals. Make sure to connect them.
