Commitment Moves You In The Direction of Your Goals

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

If you want to live a dream life, not only must you decide what you want, turn your dream into measurable goals, break those goals down into specific action steps, and visualize and affirm your desired outcomes – you must start taking action!

I recommend making the commitment to do something every day in at least three different areas of your life that moves you in the direction of your goal. If one of your goals is physical fitness, make a commitment to do some sort of exercise – aerobics, weight training, stretching – four to five times a week for a minimum of twenty minutes.

Chunk-Down that Goal and Get Out of Overwhelm

Friday, November 7th, 2008

Sometimes our biggest life goals seem so overwhelming. We rarely see them as a series of small, achievable tasks, but in reality, breaking down a large goal into smaller tasks—and accomplishing them one at a time—is exactly how any big goal gets achieved.

After you have decided what you really want, with specific deadlines, the next step is to determine all of the individual action steps you will need to take to accomplish your goal.

How to Chunk It Down
There are several ways to figure out the action steps you will need to take to accomplish any goal. One is to consult with people who have already done what you want to do and ask what steps they took. From their experience, they can give you all of the necessary steps as well as advice on what pitfalls to avoid.
