How to Craft a Successful Path (Our Q3 Meeting)

Posted on

Do you ever find yourself having trouble setting and accomplishing goals? No worries, because you are not alone and with some goal setting tips, you can surely improve!

On October 13, 2018, #TeamKnit had the fantastic opportunity of attending a quarterly meeting on the UCLA campus from 9:30AM- 2:30PM with the teacher for the day, Leah Nanni. With our starving intuition and handy dandy notebooks, we were able to understand goal setting in a way that could boost Knit Marketing’s and our own personal success.

Maybe you’ve heard of them, maybe you haven’t.. SMART goals! SMART goals are goals that are Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, and Time bound. The team learned that each of these components are ingredients to cooking up a goal that can be accomplished rather than your general, “I want to do xyz.” Simply by asking: when? How are you going to make it happen? You want to accomplish specifically what? Is it Realistic? By practicing SMART goals, you are also practicing how to be successful in your personal life and career.

Another helpful tip our team learned was about how to be organized. Keeping a busy lifestyle full of work and school can be demanding. Sometimes even #TeamKnit forgets a thing or two throughout the day. No problem! Leah taught us that by keeping track of our busy schedules, we can stay true to goals and visions. A journal, notes, daily planner, Google calendar, an app, anything in which you can jot down your SMART goals and plan your day from the moment it begins to when it ends can be very helpful and motivational. Don’t be afraid to include personal goals along with work related goals, they are equally important in crafting your successful future!

By the end of Knit’s quarterly meeting, the team wanted to practice what we had just learned and came up with a SMART goal. We decided to focus on leads; specifically, attempting to get two leads per week. Knit Marketing also decided to narrow down the industry it digitally markets for and is now focusing on the educational industry, but is still keeping an open mind and open doors. Going for education makes sense because Knit’s vision is catered to youth.

After our meeting, Team Knit went out for some team building time at an Escape room in Los Angeles. We were so close to solving all of the clues but ran out of time! It was very stressful but also very fun!
