Today I want to share with you one really simple, but also super effective goal setting hack to help you achieve your goals.
This isn’t something you’re going to read about in a lot of places, because frankly, it goes a little deeper than most of the goal setting knowledge you’re going to read out there.
Achievements are hard, especially those that may be long-term and drawn out like most of our yearly goals are. There’s a pretty common saying that one of my mentors, Brendon Burchard, says quite often. He says “when opportunity knocks, it’s work that answers.”
This is where it’s easy to get stuck with goals, doing the actual work. Because beyond the glory and excitement that is goal setting, it’s usually a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that goes into accomplishing them, so I want to try to give you every possible advantage that you can get to help you out.
You often feel really excited when you set goals initially, and you might even make some good progress in the beginning, but eventually when life gets in the way, it’s easy to fizzle out and return back to your old habits.
The technique I want to share with you today will help you with this as you begin to think about what you want to accomplish in the near future. It will help you bring substance, meaning, and real tangibility to your goals. They won’t just be some outlandish hopes of accomplishment you wrote on a piece of paper, or typed into your computer.
They’ll actually mean something to your life, and you’ll begin to see how they will make you a better version of yourself.
