If you are a food truck entrepreneur, then you are clearly a very motivated and goal-oriented person. You took a major risk, which was entering the food truck industry, and you followed your dreams of becoming a chef in the process.
Now that you have likely accomplished one of your biggest dreams, or have at least entered your dream industry, it’s time to set some new goals. It’s time to take your dream of being a chef to the next level.
With that in mind, all food truck entrepreneurs should approach their goals a certain way, and we have mapped out that glorious path below.
How All Food Truck Entrepreneurs Should Approach Their Goals
- Figuring Out What You Really Want, Not Something That Just Sounds Good On Paper
- Making A Very Detailed Plan, And Then Attaching Some Form Of Deadline
- If You Don’t Follow This Plan, The World Will End
Figuring Out What You Really Want, Not Something That Just Sounds Good On Paper
The first step in the goal-making process? Creating your goals, of course. The ultimate key here is to make your goals. Not someone else’s, and not just something that sounds good on paper, or will make others around you happy.
These are your goals, and you are the one who has to follow them every single day. Here’s the biggest thing: If you are not passionate about your goals, then you won’t spend too much time on them. If they are important enough to you, and if all you can think about is making them come true, then you will put in the time to change them from fantasy to reality.
What do you really want in life, food truck entrepreneurs? Do you want to get to the point where you have two food trucks? Five food trucks? Do you want to get to the point where you can open up a sit-down restaurant on top of your food truck business? The choice is yours. Just make sure you are chasing goals that you are actually passionate about, because without passion, they will die.

Making A Very Detailed Plan, And Then Attaching Some Form Of Deadline
Now that you have really brainstormed and thought about what you want, where you want your life to go, it’s time to get serious about your goals by making a very detailed plan.
If you don’t make a plan for your goals, and if you don’t actually add them to your schedule, then you will only work on them when the time is right. You might think you will work on your goals when you have more time, or when your food truck is more established, but the time will never be right. If you don’t force your goals into your life, then you will never become as successful as you could be, and that’s a real shame.
Once you have actually added steps to achieve your goals and also added these steps to your daily schedule, it’s time to attach some form of deadline. This is how you separate your goals from your dreams.
Add a deadline to your goals (a specific date would be the best idea), and then hold yourself accountable to this deadline. Always make sure you are on the right track when it comes to meeting this deadline. If you hold yourself accountable to this deadline, then you will actually meet your intended goal on that given day, and that alone should keep you motivated.

You say you don’t have enough time to accomplish everything you want to accomplish, but how are you actually spending your time? Are you squandering some of it? If you want to take your schedule to the next level, then let this article on scheduling tips be your guide, entrepreneurs.
If You Don’t Follow This Plan, The World Will End
The final step? Making this mindset yours: If you don’t follow your plan and hold yourself accountable to your goals, then the world will end. You need to put some pressure on yourself. Stakes need to be involved.
If you treat your goals like a priority, if you treat them like work (of course, it’s okay to enjoy the process along the way, and very much encouraged), then you won’t push off your goals for the simple fact that life is happening and you have a million other things to do.
If you don’t work on your goals when your schedule says you should be working on them, then the world will end — you have to treat your goals like that. That’s how you become the person you were meant to be, and also how you conquer the food truck industry, entrepreneurs.
