Are you achieving your goals? If not, it may be because you aren’t writing them down.
This month, we challenge you to pick one goal and write it down. Think about something you’d like to accomplish, and instead of letting the idea flow in and out of your head, pick up a pen and write it down.
Writing down goals helps in two ways. First, looking at a visual reminder of your goal every day keeps it top of mind. Second, writing helps with encoding, the process by which our brain decides what gets stored in our long-term memory and what gets discarded. People who describe or write down their goals are 1.2 to 1.4 times more likely to accomplish them.
After writing down your goal, think through the steps you’ll need to take to make it happen.
Let’s say you want to come to an early morning class at the gym four days a week for a month. What do you have to do to accomplish that? It might be setting out your gym clothes the night before, committing to an earlier bedtime, or asking a friend to hold you accountable.
We love to help you achieve your goals! Tell us what you’d like to accomplish, and we’ll tell you how to get there.
