I have never been a fan of”goals”
Goal setting workshops and all that jazz.
Seems like a ton of people work on that stuff but never make much progress.
Me…I don’t have time to play games.
So a long time ago I trained myself to think in OUTCOMES.
Every activity I enter into I ask myself one simple question…
“What is my DESIRED OUTCOME for this project, or meeting, or relationship etc?
You see…if you focus on OUTCOMES…not goals and not the “how tos” you rarely get caught up in junk as you eye is ON THE BALL instead of on the obstacles that you will come across on the way to accomplishing what you set out to do.
Another great think about thinking in OUTCOMES is that you free up your mind to get creative in “getting er done”
One more magic tip:
At he end of the day…ask yourself…
Did I make PROGRESS today?
But if not…
By virtue of asking the question your MIND will pull you closer to the result you want by giving you ideas that you can only access via this simple daily exercise.
So I say…
Ditch Your Goals and swap them out for some great OUTCOMES and you will make progress like never before!
