When it comes to goal setting and creating good habits, I constantly get these questions:
How do I start? What is the best FIRST thing I can do? How do I stay consistent? How do I stay disciplined? Goal setting seems hard, how can I make it easy?
Good news. I have a simple answer for all of the questions. I didn’t say easy!
Here you go.
Dedicate the first 30 minutes of your day to
YOU and YOUR dreams and goals.
Impossible? Don’t have 30 minutes?
Solution: Get up 30 minutes earlier.
Divide the 30 minutes into three sections:
- Prayer, meditation, gratitude, reading, listening to good, clean, powerful, uplifting, inspirational and educational information. Feed your mind and your soul.
- Work on your goals – what are you going to do today to make progress towards your written down goals?
- Mental model. Look at your most important meetings, conversations, and presentations you have scheduled for the day. Now invest about 60 seconds of envisioning the meeting in your mind. Imagine how you want it to go. What questions do you need to ask/anticipate in order to get the results you are hoping for?
Should you do this? Only your response to this next question will give you the answer.
“If I did the three steps listed above every day, am I more likely to achieve my dreams and goals?”
Don’t take my advice – just do whatever your answer tells you to do.
Keep me posted!
By the way, in case you can’t tell, I have an enormous amount of fun and fulfillment in what I get to do every day. Helping other people and achieving my own personal goals in the process – well, it doesn’t get any better than that!
