Write Down Your Goals!

Studies have shown that only 3% of adults write down their goals. Those 3% (I hope you’re one of them!), achieve 5-10 times more than the 97% who don’t write down their goals. Having written goals is not hard. Just take out a piece of paper every day and list the three most important things you want to accomplish that day. Try to work on the three most important goals before working on lower-priority goals.

I find it helpful to also list goals for the week, month, year and 5 years on the bottom of my daily goals sheet to help me decide which goals are important each day.

The following day, carry over any unfinished goals from the day before and add that days’ goals. Even if you make just a little progress on your three most important goals every day, you’ll find that you will start to accomplish much more.
