What Kris Kringle and The Winter Warlock know about Goals and Success

Did you watch “Santa Claus is coming to Town” the other night? One of my favorite moments in the classic holiday special is when Kris Kringle helps the Winter Warlock and sings *“Put One Foot in Front of the Other”. The lyrics of this holiday favorite  are pretty telling about goals.

Put one foot in front of the other, soon you’ll be walking cross the floor. Put one foot in front of the other, and soon you’ll be walking out the door“.

Setting goals is all about reaching something but to me, goals are not only the end result but the steps to get there.

What are you doing every day, every week and every month to get there? That is as important and often more important then the actual goal itself. Why? Because if you can set goals that are achievable; how many cold calls you will do a day, how many existing or past clients you will meet within a week, how many strategic alliance meetings you will set in a month etc. etc. these things are controllable by you.

Controllable mini goals allows you to track what is working and what isn’t so you can begin to carve out what is ultimately the steps to reach your ultimate goal.

*Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

You never will get where you’re going
If you never get up on your feet
Come on, there’s a good tail wind blowing
A fast walking man is hard to beat

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

If you want to change your direction
If your time of life is at hand
Well don’t be the rule be the exception
A good way to start is to stand

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

If I want to change the reflection
I see in the mirror each morn
You mean that it’s just my election
To vote for a chance to be reborn.
