How many times have you set goals like these for your business? How many times have you actually reached them, or even remembered you set them by the time Summer came around?

Hi Gary,

So true. Of course, there is a difference between dreaming big--always a good idea:)--and setting unattainable goals--always a bad idea and likely to stress out and demoralize you and your team. Thanks for sharing with the BizSugar community.

Thanks Heather, I def agree with thinking big, or else, what's the point? I also think goals can be big, the important thing is to break that big goal down into manageable chunks and to create action oriented steps to get you there. Cheers!
