In order to be successful it is so important to set intentions, goals and targets.
There is so much power in setting goals and clear intentional motivate us to move forward.
Without setting intentions, what often happens is that we’re reactive and don’t get around to doing the important things when we want them done. Instead, we spend our time putting out random fires and doing a whole lot of other things.
I want you to keep in mind that if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.
After you set your intentions, you have to follow up by taking action- the key to success.
Be sure to write them down on paper. When you list them out, you can clearly look over your results afterward and check yourself.
At the end of today or this time next week, did you do what you said you’d do? Expressed like that, it’s clear that we’re building a kind of internal integrity check within ourselves.
When you’re first starting to build this new intention-setting skill (habit), it’s important not to pile on too much. Sure, it’s easy to get all excited about turning over a new leaf, but it’s essential that you start where you are NOW, not where you think you SHOULD be.
There are things that, from experience, you already know you can do. Set your intentions to do those things (plus perhaps a little bit more) and achieve them. Then, when you’re comfortable doing what you say you’ll do, then you can begin to stretch your intention muscles a little more.
But as in any new regimin, begin easy. Begin with what you can actually do. And only after you get comfortable with the intention-setting process should you start going for real growth. Patience – taking small, measured steps – is more than a virtue here. It’s the key to keeping yourself moving forward. (Notice I said patience, not procrastination.)
Attempt too much too soon, and the end result will be another round of demotivation and discouragement and overwhelm.
Do this, and you’ll see real, measurable progress as well as achievements you’ll truly be proud of.
Now, this is really some simple stuff, but what is easy to do is also not easy to do!
It’s all about YOU just training yourself to keep your word to yourself.
