Jim Connolly posted What everybody ought to know about achieving their goals. It’s a great post, part of it goes like this:
The reality is that you don’t need to buy goal setting products. You simply need to know what you want and to make the decision to do everything you can, to make it happen.
Jim also posted What everybody ought to know about achieving their goals on Google+ where I took part in the discussion. One commenter wrote:
Someone once asked Dan Kennedy what the secret to life and business was. He held up an index card with one word written on it: ‘Decide.”
I think that is just part of what it takes so I wrote:
I think the “Decide”-card is only half the story. The other half is “Act”.
Jim summed it up in a comment in his blog:
Looking at the comments here and those on Google+, regarding this post, there’s a common theme.
Make the decision.
Do the work.
It may not sound very sexy, but it works.
Another comment on Jim’s post at the blog says:
I’ve discovered through those past tough weeks that most of us are “blind”, we don’t achieve our goals because we don’t see them.
That’s where a coach is helpful, they see things we can’t see ourselves since we are too close.
