Or how to achieve your goals in 3 simple steps.
I’m back – holidays are over.
I’m full of energy and have ambitious goals and plans.
You don’t have to wait for the 1st of January to start with good resolutions.
How about you?
Do you have some ambitious goals and plans after the holidays?
Now how about realizing these goals
Have you ever been in a situation where you were so committed,
You really believed in yourself,
You really believed in the goal you had set,
And then something went wrong along the way.
Maybe other priorities.
Maybe some urgent thing in the family.
Or just maybe you lost interest?
Now how can we avoid this?
The Power Action Method© might just be the way…
This method works for me. I might just work for you too.
No rocket science.
3 simple steps.
And you might say “yeah Greet, I know all this”.
My question: “OK, and do you do something with this knowledge? Do you put it into practice? There is a difference between knowing and doing. There is a difference between thinking and acting.”
And specifically step number 3 is where it goes awry for most of us.
So here are the 3 steps:
- Identify the goal and shout it from the rooftops (so to speak)
What is it that you want to achieve? Lose weight? Run a marathon? Shoot your first video? …
Now share this with the world, or at least with minimum 1 accountability partner. A person who will keep you accountable. Keeping it all to yourself reduces the chances of reaching that goal tremendously.
- Identify the Power Actions
How do you eat an elephant? One bit at the time.
In other words, how can you cut your goals into sub goals (or what I call the power actions)? What are the steps you need to take in order to achieve that goal? For example, if you want to start a video blog you’ll need to have a camera and microphone, you’ll need a script, you’ll need to get comfortable in front of the camera, you need to look for a video editing tool, create a YouTube account etc….
- Every day choose 3 Power Actions and schedule
This is the important part we often ‘forget’.
Every day in the morning you choose those 3 Power Actions you will focus on that day. Plus, what is crucial: schedule dedicated time in your calendar.
Just having this little to do list, is not enough. You need to block time in order to get it done.
And ideally, you do this first thing in the morning. Brian Tracy calls this ‘eat the frog’. Get the important stuff done first.
What I would like to suggest is that you try this method for 60 days. That way you create a habit.
And this important process should really become a habit.
What is that big goal you of yours?
