Setting goals can stop "crazy squirrel" syndrome

Yesterday I got to experience the 'crazy squirrel' syndrome. I know you have experienced it too!  

The squirrel sits patiently on the side of the road looking very content, yet as soon as you are about to pass by, he darts into the road, moving left and right like a Ninga without any self preservation, until finally he makes those last leaps to the other side of the road.  All the while you are praying that you don't hit him, so you don't have to start the morning feeling guiltly that you killed one of God's creature.

When I started to think about what drives them to take such risk,  it reminded me alot of some entrepreneurs who switch around each day between sales person, bookkeeper, warehouse manager, payroll specialist, networking guru.  How could we stop darting left and right and move forward?

BY SETTING GOALS.  Goals help us energize and focus, and focus helps us to act in a measured way. 

Start by setting goals for one week, one month, six months and one year. Make sure you can measure your success.  Then concentrate on how to accomplish them,  creating a plan to see results.

When you get to the other side of the road, smile and know you have made your leap to success.
