In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Kate Volman explains how to achieve your goals. It's often easy to articulate dream up big goals, but it is harder to achieve them. It is common for people to hold onto one particular goal for years just because they did not have the time and focus to tackle it.

Drawing upon the book, The Culture Solution by Matthew Kelly, Volman points to two problems that make it difficult to achieve our goals. They are:

  1. Lack of clearly defined goals. In the face of unclear timelines and expectations, any well-intentioned goal has no chance. Make sure your goals are thoughtful and measured against some sort of timely deadline. 
  2. No accountability partner. Without an individual to keep you focused and striving, your goals will fall to the wayside. Consider reaching out to a trusted friend, mentor or hired coach to help you stay productive.
