Writing our goals down is the first step that is needed in order to achieve them. Now I got to be honest with you. I’ve been sporadic about doing this. But I can tell you that every time I have put forth an effort in writing my goals down I’ve always managed to achieve the majority of them. There is something very powerful about writing them down. Maybe it is because we become more focused when they are on paper. I’m not really sure…I just know it works.
See sometimes we tend to think that we have got everything memorized so there is no need to write them down. But if you are a lot like me you begin to realize that as we grow older our memory is not as good as it use to be.
I’ll tell you something else that I have started doing lately and that is creating a “to do” list. A “to do” list is a list of smaller steps that are needed to complete in order to reach a goal. Again there is such power in creating list. There is so much fun that one gets when they are able to mark an item off their list as completed!
Finally, there is the importance of keeping a journal. A journal is a great way of keeping us focused on our goals as well as helping us keep track of our progress! I’ve just ordered mine here from Amazon.com. A journal is a tool to keep important information that we can refer back on as we move forward with our dreams and goals! Jim Rohn highly endorsed the use of a journal in the video below.
It all starts by writing it down!
