How to Set Goals That Stick

How do you set goals? How often do you write them down? Do they actually work? Goals are the food that you need to consume. That’s why it’s important to fertilize them everyday—you go to where your mind takes you. If you stay focused long enough, you’re going to get what you’re focused on. It’s not the law of attraction. It’s the law of action. With the year coming to an end, it’s typical for most people to make resolutions, to get pumped for what they will accomplish, and how big they are going to blow up in the following year. After a few weeks, you’ll see the enthusiasm drop and old habits return. Why? Most people don’t give their goals and dreams the right amount of focus. That makes it easy to get sidetracked by day-to-day details, the media, or politics. Everyone is susceptible to distractions. That’s why I write my down goals every single day: in the morning, at night, and every time I have a disappointment. I also write a personal quote that acts as a reminder and reinforcement for my daily activities. When you do this, you’ll notice a pattern will start to emerge. Things that are important to you will keep repeating and things that are not will drop off. Keep your attention on the goals and the right vehicle will show up. Keep your eyes on the windshield. Focus on big plans and targets, not on the mechanics. The only reason to go to work every day is to achieve your goals, not to make money. “Great things happen to those who work on great things.”
