The Power of Writing Down Your Goals


With the New Year right around the corner, it's time to think about just exactly what you want to achieve in 2017. Everyone wants to be great and reach achievement milestones, but not everyone is willing to commit to the grueling process that being great requires. Many people give up after one try or one failure. They settle for being average instead of striving and working to be great. Setting goals alone isn’t enough. If you write them down on a piece of paper, then put that paper away and never do anything else, you’ve wasted your time. Instead, you have to take massive action to achieve your goals. Follow this process for success in both goal setting and achieving.

The process

Start by setting a stopwatch or the timer on your phone for three minutes. This will force you to write your goals down quickly and not dawdle. The point is to eliminate the tendency to start worrying. When we consider the goals we want to achieve, we immediately start thinking about reasons we can’t reach those goals. There will be roadblocks to consider, a lack of money and a million-and-one other obstacles. But don't worry about those things; if you set a stopwatch for just three minutes, the short time span will force you to focus and write down what’s really in your heart instead of wasting time on the challenges down the road.

Your goals should both excite and scare you. Goals shouldn’t be purely logical. Most people set logical goals and never achieve any greatness. To accomplish amazing things, set logic aside and set goals that stir up emotions within you. Dream big and don’t let purely rational thoughts distract from setting the lofty goals you know you can accomplish.

The next part of the process is to write down eight to ten goals you want to achieve by this time next year. It’s good to include some balance on that list with health, fitness, family, leisure, and financial and business goals. Then circle the one goal that has the potential to completely change the course of your life and serve as a domino effect for every other goal on the list.

The "game-changer" goal

After you circle your game-changer goal, you'll find that the next part of the process is what separates the best of the best from everyone else. Write down 20 to 50 things you need to do to achieve that major goal of yours—every little step. Most people never even think about what they need to do in order to achieve their goals. If you are thinking about this, you'll be putting yourself in the small percentage of high achievers and significantly increase your odds of success. 

After you have completed your action plan of all the things that must happen in order to achieve your game-changer, start transferring one to two tasks a day onto your daily task list. Once you have your game plan ready to go, your overall task is all about taking massive action and being relentless each and every day until you get to where you want to be.

Goal setting can completely change your life, but only if you stick to it. Take these tips and reach new heights as an EXIT Realty Massachusetts franchise owner.
