How Do You Track Your Goals?

There’s a well shared expression that goes something like this;
If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.

Target DateI’m a big believer in this concept because it reminds me of another expression, you can’t hit what you can’t see. If you want to hit the bulls eye of a target, you have to know where the target is. If you want to reach your goal, you have to know where it is and how to get to it.

So, you can understand why I share these sayings with my clients each time we meet.

What’s your target and how will you know when you hit it?

Get Fired Up and Reach Your Goals?

What’s Your Power Movie, Song, Quote?

I often ask coaching clients to find a song, quote or movie that stirs their emotions in a positive way.

I believe that emotions drive and support our motivations. So, I tell clients to find their power song, quote or movie and keep it handy.

That way, when they are feeling a little low or challenged, they can listen to the song, read the quote, or watch the movie that gets them fired up and back on a positive track.

My wife thinks it’s is odd, but my power movie is Gladiator starring Russell Crowe.

Now, I’m curious–what’s yours?

What is your goal, exactly?

Goal Setting is Easy, Goal Achievement is a bit harder.

Goal Setting techniques always seem to start the same way–Step 1: Describe what you want.

But remember, it is important to be specific.

Many of my clients struggle with Step 1. Usually because they don’t take the time to think about exactly what they want, and they don’t understand the importance of being specific.

One technique to help clients work through Step 1 is to have them write a paragraph or two describing the specifics of the goal they want to reach. Next, I ask them to set it aside for a few hours, then go through it again to add more detail.

Success Habit SecretTaking time to think through the goal allows us to see it more clearly. This clarity helps us to feel the excitement and enthusiasm necessary to move consistently towards the goal. (Step 2)

  • What are the details of your goal?
  • How specific is your description?
  • Does it create excitement and enthusiasm?

    The Mastermind and Your Goals

    Are you in a mastermind group?


    The term mastermind group is generally attributed to Napoleon Hill, author of Think & Grow Rich and The Law of Success, who wrote this to explain the idea.

    “A Mastermind is a unique concept that leverages the collective power of the group, creating a Third Mind.”

    One way it might be explained today is, A gathering of like-minded individuals who meet regularly to support each other in reaching their goals.

    If you’re not familiar with the concept of a mastermind group here are a few of the benefits.

      • Discuss personal/business growth ideas and strategies
      • Provide a supportive and objective sounding board
      • Share experience & knowledge across the group
      • Review and support new ideas and activities
      • Accountability for continuous improvement
