I talk about goal setting, planning and feeling despondent!

23rd April 2015

Planning ahead When you have a long term goal It’s really hard to keep yourself on track If you don’t have check points along the way Then motivation wanes dramatically I took a big chance this year I gave up steady money In a steady job (that I did not enjoy at all) To go full time with the business (that I love) It’s not been the leap that I expected though It’s been a butt load of admin actually I’ve done more laptop work than I have done coaching But it’s all necessary To get me where I need to be I am thinking super long term like 10 years from now Building something from scratch is hard Putting all of the pieces together is like a million piece jigsaw puzzle But piece by piece it does all come together I want to share with you my tricks for keeping my mind on the prize I set my self small goals Every Sunday I evaluate where I am And I project where I want to be in one weeks time Sure I have the end goals in my mind But they are too far ahead to be the driving forces now So I set down 5 targets for the week 5 things that must get done this week It doesn’t sound like much But life happens around this You cant predict what is going to de-rail you Or attempt to de-rail you day to day And if you get more done well that’s just a bonus A great book along these lines is ‘The one thing’ I’ll let you read it to find out what your ‘one thing’ is! This week I have been derailed by hot coffee and laptop problems I have the burns to prove it But when all is said and done It doesn’t matter that I have burn marks Or that my laptop crashed Because I have no excuses Come end of year I have either done the work that I needed to do to succeed Or I haven’t It really is that simple I learned this straight forward thinking from a brilliant man called Paul Mort He is teaching me many things But most relevant to me right now is the value of taking responsibility Where you find yourself is a direct product of your work to date […]
