“Achieving your goals is NOT a problem of goal setting. We are goal setting experts. Goal achieving is an issue of continuous and consistent decision making.” Unknown
As we say good bye to 2017 a good percentage of us make goals to make changes in 2018. Research has shown however, that most of us fail to follow through on those goals. As the quote says setting the goals is easy, it’s the commitment we need to achieve them.
Next time you are faced with a decision to do something, ask yourself, “Is this action/behaviour going to move me closer to my goal? And if not, do you want to give up one of your precious 525,600 minutes of 2018 to take this action?” We all get given the same number of minutes each year, as long as we keep breathing. How do you plan to use your allocation in a balanced way?
A builder uses a blueprint to get a house to completion as the owner wants, just as you have made your goals. The builder has to go to the building site each day and follow the blueprint if the house is to be finished, just as you need to stay vigilant and protect your brand new baby year if you want to achieve your dreams.
Enjoy living those 525,600 minutes as you achieve your goals!
