Glad you got here and are reading this :)
I know that you don’t need another set of guidelines regarding goal setting. You know it all and you understand logically its importance.
I bet you also understand visualization yet, can you really visualize your goals…in detail…in 3D?
Although I would describe myself as a creative person, I have a lot of difficulty visualizing what I want. And so I have resorted to cutting pictures out of magazines of things I want to do, houses I want to live in and places I want to visit. The only thing is, I sometimes forget to look at it!
What I have found to be absolutely fantastic is simply to write my goals out (yes long hand) in my journal everyday! (Usually in the morning). I have also recently added reviewing my goals just before going to bed at night.
What are the benefits of this activity?
- It keeps me focused with my goals clearly in my mind at the start of the day. This of course helps me in making better choices since I want the choices I make in every moment to take me closer to my goals and not away from them!
- I can put my daily activities into perspective because I know I have an objective and understand fully why I must do what I’m doing NOW!
- Now I am more aware if an activity is NOT taking me towards my goals and can, sans guilt, eliminate it! :)
I would love to hear about any other techniques that you might use to keep focused and motivated on a daily basis.
