Create Your Goal Action Plan

3) This is where you set yourself up with deadlines. That’s key, because those deadlines are necessary to keep you moving forward. But it’s also something you may resist, because it’s a way to begin holding yourself accountable, and that can be uncomfortable. Do be aware of that tendency to resist this, and make the conscious decision to keep your schedule. emember, this is your opportunity to make meaningful changes in your life. Don’t miss your chance!

Failure is OK, it’s going to happen, and you must not let it dampen your motivation or worse, make you give up.

  • Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm. -Winston Churchill
  • There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, learning from failure. -Colin Powell
  • Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out. -Benjamin Franklin

4. Make progress every single day

What’s important is that you are making steady progress every single day toward your goal, not that you light the world on fire with your pace. Can you imagine what you can accomplish in a year if you make measurable progress toward your goal every single day?

The best commentary on this idea in my opinion comes from Jerry Seinfeld.  Click here to read what he has to say about making daily progress.

5. Make your stated outcome public – tell everyone you know (everyone who will be supportive, that is)

When you were in school, did you ever have a test coming up and you just said “I’m too busy, and I just don’t feel like taking that test today”. Probably not, because (a) you knew it would be reflected in your grade, (b) your classmates would know about it and (c) you’d have to work harder to make up for it next time. In other words, you would be held accountable. Accountability is a great way to insure that you do what is best for ….. you.
