“The idea of setting goals is simple: determine what you WANT then decide WHEN you are going to have it. Money, business success, career advancement, family relationships — EVERYTHING — depends on you ability to set crystal-clear goals. It separates the winners from those who work hard and continuously come up short. If this is you, good news! This is an EASY skill to learn and once learned will guide your successes for the rest of your life.” ~ E. R. Haas, CEO, Author, Serial Entrepreneur
No long speech, just the fastest approach to Setting Achievable Goals!
First, invest 3 minutes to watch the above motivational, inspirational and factual video above. Let your subconscious visually take in the words while you listen and learn.
Next, look back 3 years and recite what your goals for TODAY were THEN. Remember, TODAY was SOMEDAY a long time ago…
My stretch goal for 2017 was: _______________________________
My stretch goal for 2018 was: _______________________________
My stretch goal for 2019 was: _______________________________
Maybe being debt-free or a zero mortgage was the goal by now. Or maybe it was to have a second home, travel more, expand the family, start a new business. IMPORTANT: If any of these goals have been moved from year to year you have “issues”.
Now, let’s come face to face with the Someday Dreams you hope to achieve in the next 3 years…
In 2020 I will: _______________________________
In 2021 I will: _______________________________
In 2022 I will: _______________________________
Can be anything your heart desires: Learn to play tennis or the piano… travel Europe by train… hike The Great Wall of China… give $200,000 to charities you care about: curing cancer, eliminating homelessness, freeing the animal shelters… ANYTHING YOU TRULY WANT.
Moment of Truth…
Look at both lists. If any of the goals you set for the last 3 years are still not realized the question becomes WHY?
From hard-science and a hundred million datapoint at TQ we can tell you PRECISELY why and WHAT you need to do.
- Increase your SKILLS: Get a coach, engage seriously in self-development, build your personal power to the point where you actually have the ability to achieve the results you want. When your skills exceed your challenges you win, are happy, and are ready for the next chapter in your life’s adventure.
- Or, decrease the size of your GOALS: Recognize that they will forever be nothing but hopes, dreams, and wishes that will show up on some Bucket List for the rest of your life. When your challenges are greater than your skills you are constantly worried, stressed-out, burned-out and running on empty. Don’t let this be you.
