“When you spend time with million-dollar CEOs, you learn that the way they look at goal setting is truly next level.” Dr. Darnyelle Jervey Harmon
Can I keep it real with you – it’s the end of January and many who have set resolutions have already abandoned them. This is why I am an advocate for setting one of three types of goals vs setting resolutions when you desire to scale and sustain your business to and beyond the million-dollar mark. When I started to focus on niching down my goals, I noticed something powerful happened – more of my goals were achieved in a way that honored who I am and what I desire to do in the world. Once I have tried anything for myself and it works, it’s time to share it with you – this way, I know that I am not spouting theory and I can help you to turn your gaps into a gateway. . If you are a million-dollar CEO or million-dollar CEO in the making, your goal setting game is about to get stronger as I introduce you to the three types of goals every million-dollar CEO sets each year. These goals are typically set quarterly as million-dollar CEOs run their businesses in 90-day Moves. In this powerful episode, you will learn how to differentiate your goals and how to set them so that you get to celebrate more wins in the millions messy middle. If you are looking for a powerful and fresh perspective on goal setting, this episode is for you. Grab your pen and Move to Millions Podcast note and listen in now to discover:

Today’s episode I’m so excited to do this episode. I get asked this question a lot and I’ve been really paying attention in my DMs. So if you slide into my DMs with questions, know that I see them and I am going to be responding either with an episode on the podcast or a live on IG and Youtube. Somehow, some way, I want to make sure that I’m helping you to understand what it really takes in order to make the move to millions and to do it in a way that honors who you are so that you don’t have to sacrifice or compromise anything that’s important to you in the process. Listen, I’ve been there, done that, and have the t shirt for the years when I compromised myself and my sanity. Time is up for all of that. This is 2024. This is the year of the open door.
This is the opportunity for everything around us to move just like that. And so I want to create an environment that really allows me to serve you in the best possible way. And so one of the questions I get all the time, I’m smiling. For those of you who won’t see the video version of this episode, because love, love this question, it actually came from a client that’s currently enrolled in my move to millions mastermind. And she said, you know, Darnyelle, I watch you knock down goal after goal after goal. How do you do it? Number one. And what types of goals do you personally set? One of the decisions I made for this year on the podcast is to share more of myself. Right.
I feel like I do a decent job at that, but I really want to go deeper. And you all know this is my year of anchored ascension. So I’m going deep into the things that really matter so that I can accelerate. And so some of the things I think I take for granted, because I’ve just been doing this work and I’ve been this high achiever person forever, since, like, 1975, is I just take for granted that people know these things. And what I’m realizing is that even when we have a knowledge or an understanding of something, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we get it and how others do it, right? So sometimes we’re just looking for a frame of reference. And so I thought it would be cool to share with you three types of goals that I believe every million dollar CEO needs to set. Annually, quarterly, monthly, and weekly. Yes, you heard me correctly.
Annually, every year, quarterly, every 90 days, monthly, every 30 days, and every week, every seven days. These are the goals that you should set. I believe that this episode has the potential to change everything for you, and that’s why it’s running early in the season, so that you can get it and you can actually do something with it this year. Okay, so let’s jump in. Three types of goals. Type number one, comfortable goals. Comfortable goals are those easy to do. It’s almost like low hanging fruit, right? You know what low hanging fruit is? In case you don’t, let me define it, low hanging fruit are those opportunities that are right there that if you just literally reach out, you don’t even have to stretch to get them.
They could turn into something for you that’s comfortable goals. They’re easy to do, they’re right there, they’re quick wins. What I love the most about comfortable goals is they make your confidence soar. You know that your confidence will close more deals than your skills. And the more confident you are, the more your clients will be able to borrow your confidence to say yes to themselves through your products and services. So confidence being high is so important. And that’s why we set comfortable goals, because we want your confidence to soar. We want you to be able to use that confidence to anchor in to the realization that you are in fact, the best thing since pockets.
So the first types of goals that you want to set every year, every quarter, every month, and every week are comfortable goals. My personal recommendation is that you get a copy of the move to millions planner, y’all. This planner is the bomb. It’s the best thing since pockets. In the planner every single week, we have space for you to set these comfy goals that we’re talking about. And we’re going to get into the other two types of goals in a moment. But you can literally have a place where every single week you can set those goals so that you make sure that you leave each week with quick wins. Some of these wins are going to help you to grow as a leader.
Some of these wins are going to grow your revenue. Some of these wins are going to grow your team, but there will be growth when you focus on comfortable goals. And when you’re planning for your year, your quarter, your month, and your week, starting with your comfortable goals, has you vibrating at a higher level. Your energy is really high. And we know that the right action with the right energy produces the right results. And that’s what we desire for you. So the first types of goals are your comfortable goals. Second types of goals that I want you to set every year, every quarter, every month, every week are community goals.
Now, community goals take those comfortable goals to the next level, because in order to accomplish your community goals, you need coaches and other people rallying around you in order to be accountable to them so that you actually take the actions to achieve your goals. These goals will require the participation of others and this group of people gives you the courage to actually achieve the goals. These goals are a little bit harder because you got your quick wins out of the way. So these ones are still going to be wins, but you might have to put your elbow in it in order to win with a community goal. And while you’re putting your elbow in, you’re looking at others and looking to others for support around the goal.

So every year, every quarter, every month, every week, you also want to identify those community goals that you need to set, that you need the accountability to hit so that you can stay on target to your million dollar year. And the last types of goals that you need to plan for every year, every quarter, every month, every week are catalyst goals. Catalyst goals shift the trajectory of your life. These are dates with destiny. These goals create a reverberation in the atmosphere. These goals scare you. These goals probably make you want to swallow your tongue. These goals keep a knot in the pit of your stomach.
These goals are so big that it doesn’t feel possible in and of your own strength that you could actually accomplish them. Those are catalyst goals. But these catalyst goals, as you get out of your comfort zone and even get beyond the support of your community and stretch yourself, will literally shift the trajectory of how you show up in the world and what you accomplish and what accolades you receive. When I think about some of the catalyst goals that I have set in my lifetime, let’s just talk about in the last year of my business, I set some goals that made me nervous. And here’s what I know. You’re not dreaming big enough if you can do it in of your own strength. That’s a comfy goal. A catalyst goal is a goal that is going to change everything.
Some have asked me, I literally was just having a conversation with some people in a mastermind that I’m in about my book launch. And for many people on the outside looking at that launch, there were a lot of moving parts. Now, when you are launching, there are a lot of moving parts. As you’re listening to this, our next million dollar intensive is on producing a million dollar launch. So if you want to learn how to step by step in detailed fashion, because that’s how I do go grab your ticket to move to millions live and we can talk all about launching. But a lot of people have asked me questions about the catalyst goals that I set as a result of my book launch. Now, I knew this book was needed. I knew that the planet needed the book.
I was so clear, because God mandated it, right? God is not going to give you a purpose that the fulfillment of isn’t going to shake the planet. He’s just not going to do that. And so I knew going in that I was onto something and that I was creating something really special. And as we set the goal, that was a catalyst goal, that was a stretch goal. I honestly didn’t know if we would hit it, but I set it nonetheless. You ever heard the saying, shoot for the moon so that you land amongst the stars? That’s what setting a catalyst goal does for you, right? So the goal I set, I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about this on the podcast, was to sell 10,000 copies of the book before the book released on November the 7th. We did not sell 10,000 copies of the book before the book released on November 7. I didn’t know if we could do it.
But catalyst goals make you nervous. I said, it makes you want to swallow your tongue. The thought that I would like, if I thought that I could sell 10,000 copies of the book, I would have set the goal to sell 50,000 copies of the book, like, I really wanted it to be more. And my estimation of how many copies of the book we would sell 10,005 figures felt like something catalysts. And so I set the goal to sell 10,000 copies. We didn’t. The first week the book was out, we sold 5500. Do you know the percentage of books that come out in the first week and sell 5500 copies? It’s not that many.
According to Google, 98% of books release sell less than 5000 copies. So that means only 2% of books sell 5000 copies. One study says 1% of books sell five thousand copies. Wow. I’m a one percenter guys.
Can’t call me off guard and by surprise, but I’m glad I googled it, right? That’s the catalyst goal, as an example, to do something that only 1% to 2% of the world actually does. That’s like when I was in Mary Kay cosmetics. I became a Mary Kay beauty consultant after my first ex fiance’ got the older woman in our church pregnant. And the bottom fell out of my life. If you’ve been an OG listener, and you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve heard that story, you already know my very first book. If you understood my past, you would understand my praise. Talks all about that relationship and what happened. I talk about it a smidge and move to millions just to really set y’all up a little bit.
Y’all thought it was going to be a real housewives of insert your city kind of moment, but it wasn’t. I was just making a quick point when I got into Mary Kay. Here’s the thing. If I’m getting into anything, I’m doing whatever the thing is that one does when they get there. That’s just how I roll. And so when I came into Mary Kay, much like when I started incredible one enterprises, I knew this was a million dollar company, even though I hadn’t realized it yet. When I went into Mary Kay, I knew I was a pink Cadillac driving Mary Kay person, even though I hadn’t realized it. And y’all know the story. I was mediocre at best when I first got into Mary Kay. It wasn’t until I decided. Decide. There’s that word. So I decided to quit my job that I went all in on Mary Kay and picked up that pink cadillac five months after I quit my job or earned it. Five months after I quit my job, picked it up like eight months later because it takes three months to deliver. Those are catalyst goals. Deciding that I wanted a pink cadillac in Mary Kay Cosmetics is a catalyst goal.
So let’s make this practical for you. A comfy goal might be: This week I’m going to reach out to three previous clients and see if any of them are interested in working with me again in some capacity. This month, this quarter, this year. That’s a comfy goal. A community goal might be: I want to speak on five stages next year at events that have at least 100 people in the audience. Your community is going to help you to find those events. And a catalyst goal might be: I want to make a million dollars as a speaker. Those are examples of comfortable goals, community goals and catalyst goals. You need to set all three.
