Another week has just passed by, and while I didn’t get a chance to post any articles, it certainly doesn’t mean I stopped reading what others had to say! :)
Here are the posts I found interesting in the past week. Enjoy!
A goal that merely seems like something you “should” do is not only unmotivating, it can be actively de-motivating, slowly draining the life from you as you beat yourself up about not achieving it.
And although a lot has certainly been written out there about so-called “SMART” goals, the truth is that you can have a goal that is SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Tangible), but still doesn’t do jack to motivate you.
Steven Aitchison from Change Your Thoughts did a terrific job starting a series of post on goal-setting and defining your ultimate outcomes. In the first post of the series, he explains why it is so important to write your intentions down, and provides a downloadable set of ultimate outcomes templates for you to print out and fill in:
Only 3% of the population write down their goals and did you know that the top 3% of the richest people in the world control half of the money going around the world, is this a coincidence?
Try the ultimate outcomes sheets for 3 months and see if it makes a difference in your life.
