On today's episode of Women Choosing Growth Podcast, Tina Sue introduces a comprehensive six-step strategy for goal achievement. Emphasizing the universal applicability of these steps for both personal and professional objectives, Tina stresses the importance of clear goal setting and strategic planning. She begins by underlining the crucial, often overlooked first step: vision planning. This entails a deep, visionary exercise, urging you to envision their future far beyond mere financial targets. Tina encourages a broad, holistic view of goals, contemplating their underlying motivations and the envisioned lifestyle they entail.

Tina then explores the second step, the well-known SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats), to encourage broad, strategic thinking. She urges people to ponder opportunities and threats that could impact their business, citing a real-world example of a business affected by a Google outage. This step is about more than identifying strengths and weaknesses; it's about imagining possibilities and preparing for potential challenges. The third step involves setting SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-bound). Tina recommends using the insights gained from vision planning and SWOT analysis to form concrete, realistic goals with clear metrics and timelines.

The final three steps focus on implementation and review. Collaboration, the fourth step, involves seeking external perspectives to refine the plan. Tina emphasizes the value of mentors, advisors, or trusted colleagues in providing different viewpoints. The fifth step is about personal development and self-care, ensuring that personal growth and wellbeing are part of the plan. Lastly, Tina highlights the importance of repetition and regular review of the plan to ensure it remains relevant and effective. This comprehensive approach, covering vision, analysis, goal setting, collaboration, personal development, and ongoing review, offers a robust framework for achieving your goals.
