Breaking Down Goals For Success Into Manageable Steps

Chunking. This tool is a valuable resource for helping to develop

the mindset for marketing success. It is extremely versatile. Chunking

is effective with breaking goals down into easy manageable steps for

success. You can also use chunking to clear blocks and work through


Originally, chunking was a term developed to explain

the way people remember. Studying memory determined people remember

seven bits of information at a time. This is what our brain can retain

in short term memory. In order to hold more info, you can group similar

pieces of information together. Some examples of chunking numbers

includes phone numbers and social security numbers. This memory trick,

or mnemonic, is being used here to group similar types of information

together to develop the mindset for marketing.

Consider how often

you might have thought about growing your business. When you begin to

consider all the steps necessary to have that occur, it can be

overwhelming. Where do you begin? How do you work this into an already

busy schedule? For some, this is enough to change your mind and

continue with business as usual.

Determine goals you would like

to have for growing your business. Write down where you would like your

business to be in one year from now. Write your 6 month goal. Now write

90, 60, 30 day goals. Take it one step further. For each goal, break it

down into easy steps. Now you have chunked your one year goal into a

manageable plan with the steps you need to do along the way.


working on reasons you feel uncomfortable about growing your business,

chunking allows you to take all of the issues around a topic, clump

them together into groups. Breaking your down goal into chunks

increases the likelihood of success. The single larger goal is more

achievable as you work through one step at a time.

In most cases,

there was a primary belief you developed. Some core issues include

money and self worth, working harder to make more money or fear of

public speaking. Once you become aware of the belief you developed that

is a barrier to growing your business, you have a choice. Do you want

to change it, or not?

Becoming aware of the barriers you have to

marketing is the first step toward change. These limiting beliefs get

reinforced through events in your life, many times unconsciously. Begin

to list your barriers. Then look for similarities. Do they somehow

remind you of experiences you had when you were younger? You might

initially feel you have many reasons not to grow your business.


I have found is usually there is a set of core issues. Once the core

issues are resolved, the other things that appear to have been issues

will resolve themselves easily. This process helps identify core

issues. You can then work on the true underlying issue and peel the

onion at a quicker rate.

This shows you have to take something,

either positive or negative, and begin to break it down into smaller

manageable pieces. Many times it is easier to identify the goal and

then begin to work your way backward. Once you have broken it down to

the smallest bit, you will have more focus.

When you are ready to

take some of these ideas you listed and take action, block out time for

marketing on your schedule. Get out your calendar. With different

colors for each category, begin to place some of these activities onto

your calendar.

The idea is to consistently do some type of

marketing activity on a regular basis. When you consistently marketing,

you are more likely to always have referrals. Instead most people take

a feast or famine approach, only marketing when they need more clients.
