How often do you meet with your team?

1-MinManagerI just met with a client who was holding “monthly” meetings with his partner. He was concerned that too many things seemed to be falling through the cracks.

So, I asked him, “What do you think would happen if you switched to ‘weekly’ meetings?”

Which reminded me of one of my favorite management books.

Speak Your Goals to Create Energy

Your Words Create Your Life.

Well, it’s time to get back to the 7 steps of my Seven Step Goal Setting Strategy and how you can use it to reach your goals.

First, a quick recap of the previous steps.

– Step 1: You must be crystal clear about what you want.

– Step 2: Know why the goal is important to you.

– Step 3: Identify repeatable actions to reach your goal.

– Step 4: Commit to a set schedule for completing those actions.

– Step 5: Commit to your plan for at least 21 days.

– Step 6: Review your goal plan at least 3 times every day.

And now,
STEP 7: Speak the answers to steps 1 and 2 aloud as you review them.

- Have you ever heard a speaker who stirred your emotions?
- Have you ever been inspired by a speech that made you take action?
- Have you ever felt the charge when a loved one said to you, I Love You?

The emotional charge of the spoken word is a strong compelling trigger.

Be Your Motivational Speaker

Speak out loud the specifics of your goals and the emotional reasons they are important to you as often as you can. You can become what you think about if you act on what you talk about.

So, there you have it!
The 7 Step Goal Achievement Strategy that I walk through at my Success Habit Workshops and in the Seven Simple Steps DVD Program.

Now, it’s your turn. Use these steps to achieve your goals.

Goal Setting Tips to be Your Greatest!

Happy New Year and 2014 Goal Setting!

  • Do your New Year’s Resolutions inspire you?
  • Will your goals help you be Your Greatest Self?
  • Or, are they tasks that seem like hard work and drudgery?
  • Too often New Years resolutions and goals setting plans fade within the first few weeks of the new year. But, you can keep them strong and stay on target with the right motivation.

    As my mentor Denis Waitley will tell you “Motivation is a contraction of motive and action. An inner force that compels behavior, it comes from within, not from any external circumstance.

    The motivation for reaching your goal must be a burning desire inside you. All of my coaching clients understand this concept; and I explain it in each of my Success Habits Workshops.

    Once you find the passion in your goal, it will drive your motivation and sustain your commitment.

    Let me share a few New Year’s promotions to help you find your passion and reach your goals.

    SmileyQuestion

    There is an expression that I believe to be true.
    “Out of sight, out of mind.” And I believe it also applies to our goals.

    If we’re not thinking about our goals often, then chances are we’re not working towards them as often as we could.

    So, during each of my Success Habit Workshops I encourage participants to review their goals at least three times every day and use this expression.

    Keep your goals in your sight and you will keep them on your mind.
