This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Jill.
Well, it’s New Year’s resolution time, and I’m getting ready to set my resolutions for my business. The only problem I’m experiencing is that I’m actually very reluctant to set those goals. Every year I do this, and every year, I don’t follow through on my goals. It’s maddening!
What a perfect question…
I would recommend that you set a yearly goal, but because you’ve allowed yourself to NOT hit those goals over and over, you’re going to have to set smaller shorter term goals as well.
Let me explain. Right now, you don’t want to set year-long goals, because you actually don’t trust yourself to do what’s necessary to hit that goal.
You need to strengthen your confidence-in-goal-setting muscle!
Every night before you go to bed, write down 3 daily goals for the following day. When you wake up, you know exactly what you need to do.
DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO GO TO SLEEP THAT NIGHT UNTIL YOU’VE COMPLETED THOSE 3 TASKS!
You cannot allow yourself to make any excuses or exceptions to this.
Also, it’s important that the 3 tasks you assign yourself each day are taking you closer to your year-long goal and not further away from it.
If you do this over and over again, you’ll find that you’re more confident in your ability to follow through on goals, and also that you’re closer to your year -long goal than you’ve ever been.
Happy goal setting for your most prosperous year yet!
