Why You Need To Write Down Your Goals.

Why-You-Need-To-Write-Down-Your-Goals

Did you know writing down your goals makes you 42% more likely to achieve them?*

Here are some tips to get you started.

Publicise – When you start to share your goals with others this is a great way to hold yourself accountable. Because no one wants to fail, sharing your goals with others tends to hold you accountable for your actions, but it will also give you some much needed encouragement from family and friends to really reach success – especially if you post progress updates! People often times love this and will track your accomplishments.

Create An Action Plan – When you write down your goals, your brain immediately starts to question how you will achieve them. Thus you immediately start to create an action plan. And when you create a specific action plan you are more likely to follow the steps. Each action you follow takes you one step closer to achieving your goal. NOTE: for each goal write down 3 actions you will take to make it happen!

Be Date Specific – When you write down your goals you must have a due date in mind. If you don’t have a due date in mind, you will find yourself running around in circles and the reoccurring theme in your head will always be “I’ll start tomorrow”. Versus when you are date specific you feel the spark and need to proceed with taking on the actionable duties to achieve the goal.
