It’s a new year and you’re wondering: Is Victor going to talk goals?
I have to. We spent time at the last meeting with valuable discussions on updating our presentation titles, now it’s time to put some muscle behind those presentations.
Therefore, specifically, we need to identify our speaking goals. My motivation for this? The opening lyrics from the John Lennon song: So This is Christmas:
So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun
I cringed at, “What have you done?” How about you?
It’s the start of 2014. You can redeem yourself this year. I promise to avoid the R-word.
Let’s make it simple: set a speaking goal – or two. (see below for shocking observation from a 12 year old girl * )
1. Speak to a large automotive organization to attract coaching clients – 4 months
2. Create and speak at seminar to help a plastic surgeon attract new patients – 3 months
Finish your signature speech
Deliver your signature speech
Start your signature speech
Create a product to sell
Layout your coaching program to make it easy to buy
Get Qualified at the Bureau
Attend more meetings
Write them down. Bring them to the meeting. Announce them. Be accountable.
* My inspirational speaker friend Brian Adams tells the story of his daughter mentioning a desire of hers. True to form, Brian asked: is that a goal of yours? She paused, thought for a moment and said: “No, it’s just something I’m going to do.” Simple?
To your speaking success!
