Chris Haddon and Jason Balin, co-founders of Columbia, M.D.-based lending and real-estate companies Hard Money Bankers and REI 360, are serious about goal-setting. In this video, the Entrepreneur Network partners outline their own personal rules to achieve accelerated goal-setting.

"It's extremely important to mentally prepare yourself, get your goals on paper and understand a vision of where you want to get to," says Balin. 

These rules include:

  • Write your goal down on paper.
  • Put a timeline on your goals.
  • Your goals must be measurable.
  • Start at the end and work your way back to today.
  • Get a coach.
  • Have accountability.
