Keeping The Kinks Out Of Your Goal-Setting Plan By Josh Hinds

When it comes to achieving your goals, keep in mind the old saying, “out of sight, out of mind”. Anytime that we allow ourselves to lose sight of our desired goal it can end up creating a real kink in the goal setting process. Why you ask? The answer is simple — because our lives can get hectic and if we allow ourselves to take our eye off what we want, life has a way of putting some other action that requires our attention in its place. It’s really that simple.

So what’s the solution you ask? Keep lists, to do lists, action tasks… whatever you choose to call them, the point is… keep your goals nearby and in plain sight, and just as important always write down those smaller tasks you can take on an ongoing basis that will support you in reaching your larger goals.

    Josh,
    Do you have a goal setting format that you recommend or use? I know to write, date, sign, make obtainable, vocalize and visualize daily. But anything else I am missing?
