Goals are important, Write down three things you’d like to accomplish before the end of the week.
Be realistic, things you can actually get done.
Go ahead, write them down. Written goals are so powerful, they’re a challenge and they’re visible.
Write them where you have to look at them every day this week.
Set aside time each day to work on these three goals. (Note, don’t list 10—start with just three).
As you find yourself drifting remember John Lee Dumas’ FOCUS: Follow One Course Until Success.
Don’t try to juggle all three. Get one in your sites and knock it out, then and only then move on to the next one.
Note: there will be times when you come to a point with one goal where you may be waiting on another party or have to wait for something else to happen, then it’s OK to move on to your next one, but as soon as whatever bottleneck is cleared, immediately go back and FOCUS.
Let the daily distractions in. Don’t try to fight them. Just know you have to get back to your goals when they are gone. In today’s day and age, resistance is futile—you’re not going to avoid getting pulled away. Simply return to your goal and FOCUS.
