Weekly Goal: Attend BNI meetings
Monthly Goal: Report to Thomas
To make your goals SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound), here’s a breakdown of actionable steps you can take:
1. Research BNI Meetings:
– Spend an hour today researching BNI (Business Network International) meetings in your area.
– Note down the schedule, location, and any requirements for attendance.
– Identify at least three potential BNI meetings to target.
2. Reach Out and Confirm:
– Contact the BNI meeting organizers using the provided contact information.
– Introduce yourself, express your interest in attending, and confirm your attendance for the next available meeting in your chosen locations.
– If necessary, inquire about membership requirements or any necessary preparations beforehand.
3. Attend BNI Meetings:
– Block out time in your calendar for the selected BNI meetings.
– Prepare a brief elevator pitch about yourself, your skills, and what you are seeking.
– Actively participate in each meeting, listen attentively, and take notes.
– network with fellow attendees and exchange contact information with individuals who align with your goals or may be valuable connections.
4. Monthly Reporting to Thomas:
– Set aside time every month to prepare a progress report for Thomas.
– Summarize your achievements, challenges, and lessons learned.
– Share any significant outcomes or results that you’ve attained.
– Seek valuable feedback from Thomas and ask for any suggestions or improvements regarding your overall goals.
To enhance your networking skills and overall professional development, I recommend exploring the following resources:
1. Book: “Never Eat Alone” by Keith Ferrazzi
– This book provides valuable insights into building relationships and networking effectively.
2. Podcast: “The Tim Ferriss Show”
– Tim Ferriss interviews exceptional performers from various fields, including business, sports, and arts. Listen to episodes that focus on networking, communication, and building connections.
