The statistics are staggering. Only one in five people set annual goals for themselves. What’s even more surprising, though, is that of those, only 8% actually achieve them. So what’s going on?
It seems that the key to success is to write down your intentions – which increases the likelihood that you’ll reach them by ten times. And it’s like compound interest: the earlier you start writing down your goals, the more it’ll pay off as time goes on. A Harvard Business School study showed that those who wrote down their goals will earn 9 times more over their lifetimes than those who don’t.
If you are local, I can help you be on your way this Sunday, November 10, from 1-5pm at a workshop I’m holding in Palo Alto called Success 2014: Goal Setting for the New Year, in which we will devote time to learning the art and execution of goal setting. It may well be the best time and financial investment you’ve ever made. Why? Because it will organize and prioritize every sector of your life and create an actionable plan using a step-by-step process that will guarantee clarity and accomplishment. I am so passionate and convinced that this is the way to go that I offer a satisfaction or your money back guarantee.
The workshop will include two other components that are necessary for success: an assessment tool that will be set up so that you can track your progress at regular intervals, and regular accountability check-ins. The best part is that this method can be replicated year after year.
Spending a Sunday afternoon in November may just be the shift you’ve been looking for to organize your goals and path to success. You can then sit back and enjoy the holiday season knowing that you’ll be beating the odds – the minute that 2014 hits.
