Do The Thing: Navigating the Path To Achieving Your Goals!

What is THE THING that is going to help you move forward in your career? Do you know? Have you even thought about it? Maybe you know what it is, but you are having a hard time actually doing it. If that is the case, it’s ok! Everyone is different and timelines are never the same. It can be extremely difficult to make progress in any industry, but especially hard when you are in the entertainment industry. “The Struggling Artist”. You’ve heard the saying and probably have even said it about yourself at one point in time. So how do we change that saying into “The Working Artist”?

When it comes to achieving your goals, you have to get SMART. Be sure to make all of your goals Specific – Measurable – Achievable – Relevant and Timebound.

  1. Get Specific: Know your why, when, who what etc. Why are you shooting for this goal? When do you want to achieve your goal by? Who do you need to help you achieve this goal? Think about this carefully and be honest with yourself. It’s ok if you aren’t sure yet, just don’t skip this step. the more specific you are, the better!
  2. Make goals measurable: Would you agree that you feel good when you accomplish something? It feels good to get things done and having a timeline on when you will accomplish any goal makes it more tangible.
  3. Make it Achievable: Whatever you do, be sure to make every goal an attainable one. You will need to reach many small goals before breaking through to the BIG goal. So start small and be sure to make achievable goals so you stay motivated to keep pushing forward!
  4. It has to be relevant: What makes sense to the business goals as a whole? Always focus on making goals relevant to your main mission.
  5. Time-bound: Be realistic here. You want to stay on track and make sure you accomplish every goal you set out to do. So pick a target date and tackle things that CAN be done in that specific time frame. When you accomplish the goals in the time-frame given, you are going to build steam for the road ahead!

Always be positive no matter what happens. Ask questions and be open to pivot if needed. There might be setbacks and you may need to re-strategize your goals. There’s nothing wrong with that! Just do THE THING that helps you grow and move forward on your journey to achieving your goals one day at a time. Get support when you feel yourself falling into a funk and KEEP GOING, no matter what. Be honest with yourself and make changes that will make you stand out in a world full of other people who share the same passions as you! *These changes can be anything from networking, to taking more classes* Just #dothething that will help you achieve your goals!

There are always different roads to get to where you want to go, but you have to DO THE THING that will help you navigate the path to achieving your goals. Take it one day at a time, celebrate your wins no matter how small they may be and be PROUD of yourself for chasing your dreams the smart way!

Oh, and while you’re out there achieving your goals one day at a time, be sure you remind yourself of how amazingly wonderful you are. You are unique, important and you have a destiny to fulfill! So what are you waiting for? Get out there and DO THE THING my friend! You have goals to achieve!!!
