If you need to make SMART goals to achieve success, then do so. However, if you like to be more flexible with your goals so they don’t seem like a task/job/chore, then be more flexible with them. At the end of the day, you, food truck owner, are the one who has to follow the goal, so while receiving advice from an outside perspective allows you to get a … well, outside perspective, it doesn’t mean it is the answer for you.
You are the one who is the food truck owner. You know how your food truck operates, you know what is achievable at your truck and you know how to make your own dreams come true (you became a food truck owner, right?).
There are people who, instead of making goals, like to create habits, and then work on those habits throughout the year. For example, if someone wanted to write a 60,000-word book, but said someone doesn’t write that much in the first place, or always breaks his/her writing commitments, then it would be better to just build a habit of writing as opposed to making the goal 60,000 words. In time, the work will get done, and this person in question will have built the habit that is writing on a daily/weekly basis.
This is one of the most simple ways to add more time to your day, and it is also a great approach when it comes to getting more done in less time. For example, if you delegate work to your trusted food truck employees, and then do other work while they are doing the delegated work, you will literally be getting done with more work than before … but in the same amount of time. Or, you could simply be more of a manager, and have less work to do after delegating work.
If you’re really struggling with burnout, then you need to look at the big picture. Ask yourself this question: Why did I become a food truck owner in the first place?
Why did you enter this industry? What made you want to become a chef? Think back to a time when you were down on your luck/when you weren’t happy/when you were working at a job you hated. Next, take a look at where you are now — you’re running your own food truck!
Sometimes, looking at the big picture and revisiting your goals is all you need to get out of a funk/conquer burnout. Use this little trick to your advantage as many times as you would like.
