How to Maintain Goal-Setting While the Salon Is Closed

During these times, I highly recommend goal-setting at the beginning of your day. Brew your favorite cup of java, and grab a pen and paper or digital notepad. Let’s organize our mental and physical goals.

Start by dissecting goals into categories. For example:

1. Personal (family/kids)

2. Professional (career/work)

3. Self Love (How does self become a better version from yesterday, last week, last month, last year?)

You can make it your own as long as you stick to the plan!

Write down your daily, weekly and monthly goals immediately. Chores, cleaning, kids routines, bills, reading—whatever your list is, write it all down. Remember to organize each goal in a category or group. Write it down on posters, a Dry Erase board, in Excel—whichever method works for you. I personally love the Reminders app on my iPhone. Be mindful of your time spent on every goal and try your best to stick to your schedule; this way, you don’t procrastinate.

For the superstars out there, challenge yourself to achieve each goal in half time. For example, laundry and working out takes two hours. Start by trying to knock out both while shedding 30 minutes, so that when we return to our normal routine, these principles will enhance our services and client experience.

Vision, organization, clarity, timing and efficiency is the secret, my friends.
