I was that person once.
I sat down at the end the year and mapped out everything for the coming year.
I’d be set, I thought.
In the words of Donald Trump:
The last time I attempted this old school method, I was toast by Q1.
Why did this old mentality not work?
Because even though I had a list of thoughts on a sheet of paper, I wasn’t putting action to anything.
Thoughts aren’t things.
Thoughts are just that, thoughts.
Actions are things.
Actions are what move your goals on paper from thoughts to things.
If you’re like most business owners, you’re probably sitting down to plan and set your goals for 2018…
Stop what you’re doing and don’t.
Just. don’t. do. It.
Before you write down one more goal for 2018 , you need to watch this video from my friend and mentor Todd Herman.
It’s just in time to save SO many talented entrepreneurs from drowning in the abyss of pointless goal-setting. Because Todd has proven (and it’s backed up by science), that any goal beyond 90 Days is a waste of time and energy.
It sounds harsh, I know, but hear me out.
Setting goals beyond 90 days actually sucks all the air out of your motivation, leads to crippling procrastination, and goes against the way your brain is naturally wired…so that essentially, you’re setting yourself up to fail.
I don’t know about you but failure is not on my to-do list!
So… if you’ve been thinking about your “Goals for 2018”…
Todd wants to show you a better way…one that will actually bear fruit and get you results. I’m not telling you this because Todd asked me to. I’m telling you this because it’s worked for my business.
When I first watched this, it made me realize that everything I achieved in my business actually came in spite of setting goals.
Not because of them.
And had I only approached my goals in this way, not only would I have achieved MORE in FAR less time… but I would have done so with more clarity, predictability and less leaked energy.
So if you feel like your yearly goal-setting ritual is an exercise in futility…
And you’re ready to set goals for the next 90 days that actually happen…
Join me in watching Todd’s first training video, and take the very first step in becoming a top performer in your life and business.
Here’s to throwing yearly planners out the window!
