| | Writing your goals down... every day!
Well, I thought I'd kick off the first topic in the Personal Effectiveness forum...
One of the best techniques I have learnt for goal attainment and daily motivation is the practice of writing out your long-term goals (and affirmations) in full each and every day. This is something I picked up from one of Brian Tracey's books and when I eventually tried it, I was suprised by the results. I became so much more focused and motivated each day and I began to make very quick progress towards achieving goals that I had set some time ago but up until that point had only written down once or twice.
Has anyone else tried this? What results did you see? Personally this has to be one of the most effective techniques I had tried for keeping a steady focus on your goals and maintaining a high level of motivation!
The reason it works is of course very simple, it keeps your goals and aspirations very clearly in mind - and this has a positive effect on the decisions you make throughout the day. It becomes much easier to relate your daily activities to your long term goals, which provides you with motivation. In addition if you cannot relate an activity or task to one of your goals - you are more likely to question whether or not you should be doing it in the first place!
I'd be interested to hear about your experiences with this or any other techniques that you use to keep focused and motivated on a daily basis?
