How to Plan & Set 90-Day Goals for Your Instructional Design Career & Business

Effective planning for your instructional design career and freelance business is essential for continuous growth.

But simply setting goals for your plans isn't enough…

You must follow through with and achieve your goals, which is a completely different challenge.

And that's usually where the problem lies.

To ensure you get where you want to go with your instructional design career and business, you need to have a solid process that ensures the goals you're setting are realistic and achievable.

If you set unrealistic goals without a clear plan of action, you're pretty much guaranteed to fail.

And if this sounds familiar to you, don't worry because I've got you covered!

In this episode, I'll share with you a practical goal-setting method I've used to grow my instructional design career and business.


Essential Learning Points:

  • How to develop a practical plan for setting achievable goals for your instructional design career and business
  • How to set SMART goals, a popular way to approach goal-setting
  • The importance of breaking your goals down into smaller, more manageable tasks


Key Quotes:

"90-day planning is much more manageable because your plan will have to be more realistic about what you can actually accomplish in a 90-day period."

"The process of achieving your goals is a journey, so before you start plotting your stops along the way, you should know your starting point."

"Ensuring your goals are 'SMART' makes it easier for you to foresee how close or far away you are from achieving them."
