Would you believe us if we told you that your intelligence, drive, motivation, capacity for memory are negligible assets to achieving your goals if you choose to not write them down? Sounds like of a bit of a stretch doesn't it? Well, keep reading
Several studies have shown that you are increasingly likely to achieve your goals if you simply write them down. But for us, it all comes down to a personal experience from our founder and leader, Cheri.
Earlier in her career, Cheri found herself in an endless loop of excuses that were getting in the way of her unwritten goals. Say the last three words of that sentence out loud - starting to sound kind of silly isn't it? With a desire to change, she and some friends took some steps to start moving the needle in a positive direction and it started with a pen and paper.
Four simple and written steps to goal achieving:
- Generate a list of goals for different phases of your life, then circle the big hairy audacious game changers among them.
- Create a web of all the steps (action items) that need to happen to get to the end results.
- Share the "ONE THING" you previously thought was unachievable with a friend, colleague or accountability group and some concrete steps you plan on taking to get there.
- Share the tasks scheduled for completion during the following quarter and set a follow-up meeting for an update.
The above is not an exhaustive list and there are certainly steps you can take to hybridize the journey to better suit you. This said, this process proved to be so effective and straightforward that the results were unbelievable. All you need to do now is get started. We can't wait to see what's in store for you!
