“A goal properly set is halfway reached.” – Zig Ziglar
This is a quote I came across the other day and after I read it, it really caused me to think about the goals I have set for myself, not only for my business but my life in general. The more I thought about my goals, the more I wanted to dig into the interwebs and hear what others had to say about setting goals. That’s when I came upon this article in the Huffington Post.
It was a simple article, broken into three categories, but they made sense. They made me want to sit down and follow their instructions step by step. See, typically when I set goals I make them up in my head, get really excited about them for a week or so and then one by one they become a little less vivid until they have been completely disposed.
So, enough of my babbling, here’s a rundown of the article. Write. Visualize. Do. That’s it! Write down your goals, and not just in a simple list. Elaborate on them, push yourself to be specific, and enivision yourself getting there. Take time to re-read these goals frequently and visualize how you’re going to act upon them and get them done. Finally, Do. Gather all the confidence you can muster, and go out and surprise yourself. See what you can do once you’ve been intentional about setting goals, and surpass them.
Once you surpass your goals, it’s time to do it all again. The sky’s the limit.
