What You Learn from Goals is the Real Blessing

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”–Zig Ziglar 

Achieving goals is awesome! When you learn from the journey, stay humble and be grateful. You will gain more from your trip when you pay attention to the real blessings.

If you set goals for this New Year:

  1. Have you started?
  2. Have you organized your goals into actionable daily tasks to achieve your goal?

If the answer is NO. What the hell are you waiting for???

Get started right now, today!!! Make a plan so that day you have actionable tasks and do them. Don’t procrastinate. If you do make that a goal this year that we don’t put off or delay. Our new mantra: we improvise, we adapt, and we overcome daily (sorry stole a fantastic line from a Movie, I love the phrase though).

Get going now and let’s make this a wonderful New Year, God Bless!

Goal Set Now What

It’s easy to set a goal it’s a whole other thing to bring it to life. You set yourself a great goal now what are you prepared to do?

“The secret of your success is determined by your daily agenda.”–John C. Maxwell

goal setting, success, agenda

Without action, a goal is just a dream as the cliche says. Here are some tips to get your goals energized:

  • Set realistic expectations. I want to make a million dollars this year, and you have $100 in the bank. Think about it!
  • Take some measurable action daily.
  • Don’t overwhelm yourself with too many tasks or too many goals that you can’t finish one. 
  • Organize yourself completely. Set times daily to devote to one single action. Multi-tasking is okay, but sometimes we don’t make progress doing too much. Have set times to achieve real results. 
  • Don’t confuse activity with productivity. Just because you’re moving doesn’t mean your productive. 
  • Keep right progress notes, so you know where you left off with the last task you complete. 

Produce measurable results daily. Put tasks in calendars to hold yourself accountable. Reminders to get things done. Take real action daily!

Activity vs. Productivity

When we think about what it is that we’re currently working on. Is it activity or productivity? Can we even decern the difference?

Too many folks confuse activity with productivity. Big difference between the two. Busy work is just that busy work. Rarely will that yield any sort of measurable progress.

How can we decern the difference?

  1. Set measurable goals for the day. Plan out a few key things to get done the night before and focus solely on those tasks until complete.
  2. Don’t allow outside distractions deter from the task at hand. Turn off the cell phone,  email, and shut your office door, be out of pocket for this time.
  3. Organize the day the night before. Say from 9AM to 9:30AM I will complete this task and so on. Don’t stop until it’s done. When done move on to mission 2.
  4. Don’t allow yourself to get distracted daydreaming. Focus on the task-at-hand.

Just because you think your busy does not mean you’re getting anything done. The foregoing sets clear benchmarks to achieve daily. This is the best way to assure results.

If you’re a team leader or manager. Set clear tasks in the same manner.

With just a couple of changes to your day, amazing progress can be made to propel you forward. Godspeed!
