Don't Set Goals in 2018
Look, goals are wonderful things, however they only represent 1% of the answer on their own. I'm sure we have all set countless goals during our lifetimes and most (if not all) have just dropped off over the horizon like a proverbial lemming.
So this year, don't set goals. All that nonsense about feeling your goals, reading your goals three times a day, imagining your goals, sending out goal vibrations .... blah, blah, blah ..... is useless without the following power-packed truth about goals:
Goals are only achieved by setting and following a system of actions.
Huh? How does that work? Here are some examples of how this works.
Don't say: I want to lose 20 kg
Instead do this: My daily action is eating only fresh above-ground veg and unprocessed meats.
Don't say: I want to write a book by December 31st
Instead do this: My daily action is getting up at 5:00am and writing 2 pages.
Don't say: I will save $1000 by next Christmas
Instead do this: Automate $40 to go to a HIBA each fortnightly pay.
Don't say: I want to get a raise by November.
Instead do this: My daily action is to log into Seek site and apply for one job every week day.
It is the repetitious system of new actions that achieves goals and changes our lives.
More simply - focus your energy on achieving the daily action, not the end goal.
Happy New Year's Eve to you all - the best of life's blessings to everyone.
