We all want the same stuff—health, happiness, and financial security—but we seem to have a hard time getting there.
The top three target areas for 2011 were:
1. Weight LossBut most of us failed to hit them.
2. Personal Organization
How you can beat the odds and achieve your next goal?Most of us have heard or read about the fundamentals of setting and reaching goals:
• Keep it simpleThere is one more crucial ingredient though—something often forgotten: make sure your goal is personally important to the one most able to help you accomplish what you seek…and that person is YOU.
• Be realistic
• Take it a step at a time
How can such an obvious point be overlooked?Think about it
Do you want to lose weight in order to improve your health—or is your desire really more about looking good to others?
Does your concern about organizing your task list and becoming more productive come from an internal yearning to curb stress and enjoy life—or is it motivated by a boss who keeps pushing you to accomplish more and more in less and less time?
And what about your never-ending need for more pay? Are you absolutely in need of that big raise, or are you trying to save face with your peers—sporting a higher mortgage and car payment than you can realistically afford? A goal set primarily to please or impress others is doomed to failure.
The bottom lineIn order to succeed, you must find out why the target is important to YOU—and then keep that in mind as you advance daily towards the result you seek.
Do that and, like Henry David Thoreau said, you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
