I write down my goals

I write down my goals

I write down my goals.

I know what I want and how to achieve it. Putting my goals on paper clarifies my thinking and increases my motivation. I deepen my sense of commitment. I feel more accountable. I am less likely to become distracted or make excuses.

I write my goals weekly, every Sunday morning and revisit them throughout the week. I use them to structure my days and measure my progress.

I create clear and action-oriented language. I ensure that my goals are meaningful and realistic for me. I add details and descriptions that help me to transform my vision and objectives into concrete steps.

I focus on what I can control. I design goals that depend on my effort and resources rather than counting on external events.

I create a rhythm to my plan that works for me. I write lists in my goal planner.  I carry around a notebook and pen. I even add notes and reminders on my phone. I do what I need to do to write my goals so I can see them and envision them clearly. 

I post my goals where I can see them. I keep a copy on my phone, in my goal planner and inside my office door. My targets stay fresh in my mind.

I check off the tasks as I complete them. Each accomplishment gives me satisfaction and helps me to build more momentum. I feel confident in myself and my abilities. I know that I am getting closer to my dreams. 

Today, I am determined to succeed. I expand my comfort zone and create the results I want. I always keep my goals in sight!

Ask yourself some self-reflection questions:

  1. Why are written goals more powerful?

  2. How can I align my goals with my values?

  3. What is the difference between a goal and a wish?
