On the topic of Goals! – MAKE IT HAPPEN MONDAY – Episode 12
GW here, your host for another episode of Make It Happen Mondays, a motivational minute to help you attack and win the week.
Well, again, still talking about goals. January is a big goal month. One of the things that I adopted years ago which was coming from help from different people, mentors, and people that were helping me through managing the business world is setting goals in 5 boxes. You know, we talk about how important setting goals are, it doesn’t matter if they’re little goals and there is just a few of them or if there monster goals and there is a lot of them. The key is to write them down, make them quantifiable, stay focused on them and that will help you with your road map to success.
The way I do it is I have 5 boxes. I’m kind of a compartmental type person and so my 5 boxes that I set goals in are Professional, Spiritual, Family, Financial and Physical.
So what I do is I set one or 3 goals in each one of those boxes because what I have found is: If I am trying to achieve a level of success or an accomplishment in all 5 of those at the same time, I’m the happiest. I think that balance, you could be really good in your professional goal and attacking that but neglecting your family and so this way you can stay with effort in all 5 of those at the same time. Maybe something for you, maybe not… maybe give it a try and remember with goals or anything else… You Can’t Cheat The Grind.
