Dr. Gail Matthews from California conducted a study around goal setting. She found that you were 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you wrote them down. Why? Well the act of physically commiting your goals to paper (or email!) means that you are processing the commitment and actions you will take. So, the first step of achieving your goals is to write them down. Think about your bigger picture; what do you want to achieve? Then write it down. If you can go further, start to think about your action points. What do you need to do, when and how? You are even more likely to be successful if you have a supportive friend or colleague to keep you on track. Someone you can report to weekly on your achievements and your next steps. That accountability measure means you are less likely to skip deadlines or give up. Need someone to help you realise your potential and to keep you on the path to success? Then let's work together to achieve your goals.
