How are you planning and executing your goals?
We all create goals for ourselves, sometimes on a daily basis. How do you go about following through with these goals? This #CJJblog is going to discuss how to deal with these goals that enter our lives. What percentage of your goals do you complete in full and on time? My goal is to help increase that percentage with some tips I have learned throughout my professional career. Enjoy.
- When you think it, ink it. There is something very powerful about putting thoughts and goals on to paper. When you write something down, it then becomes ten times more likely to come to fruition. What’s the last goal you’ve written down?
- Post your goals. Make them visible to you and have them somewhere visible to you every day. Post them on your mirrors, ceilings, or your desk at work. Read them three times per day and say to yourself I am responsible.
- Create stretch goals. Creating a goal that may seem unreachable is a great way to stretch your limits. Make it a study to educate yourself on what you are trying to accomplish. This will expand your mind and force yourself to be creative with how you meet your goals.
- 20-idea method. After you have established your goals, write down twenty ideas that answer the question “How will I achieve this goal?” Brainstorming ideas can help you think outside the box.
- Get support for your goals. Find others that you can count on to hold you accountable for reaching your goals. Notify them of what you hope to accomplish and keep them updated on your journey. Who are you relying on for support?
As a professional speaker, I travel a lot. Last week, I was in New York City and South Carolina speaking about goals and making your dreams come true. I hope you have a great week and never stop trying to make your dreams come true.
