What do you want next from your life? About a quarter of my practice involves working with people who are at a crossroads and having a tough time articulating where to go next. These are accomplished business owners that have achieved success – financial success, family, friends, health – however you want to define it. They’re dealing with implementation roadblocks (fear, lack of knowledge, habit, etc.) but whatever their specific flavour of blockage is, the fastest (and hardest) remedy is the same. If you are serious about taking your life to the next level, this is the method that can’t help but work if you stick with it.
Your goals are set! You’ve now got concrete, measurable actions to take to move yourself toward them. At the end of every day (this is important!), write down the answer to this question: “What did I do today to move me closer to this goal?”
This can be done in a notebook, on a whiteboard, on a file in your computer. Answer it for each goal you set. The idea is to hold yourself accountable, every day, to achieving the goals that are most important to you.
As you see, the steps are very simple. Sticking to it is the tricky part. An accountability partner who keeps you on track can be immensely helpful in that regard. Hire a coach or find a friend who wants to do the same thing and work with each other. You can’t help but make progress if you follow this plan. What’s holding you back?
