I’ve seen Nike’s, Just Do It ,logo for years and would associate it with working out. Stop complaining , put on their clothes , and just do it . Seems simple enough but when I started hearing this same phrase applied to other areas in my life , I ask how?Recently I’ve been getting the same response everywhere including podcasts I’ve listened to but until yesterday I believe I finally have my ‘but how?’ question answered.
According to Think and Grow Rich Chick , she came up with 5 ways for making goals do-able , so I’ll just paraphrase what I’ve learned.
- Goal setting requires a deadline and commitment
-Make sure your goals aren’t wishes . Create realistic deadlines
- Believe it’s possible!
– Eliminate any doubts that may enter your mind
- Find your ‘rabbit’
– Think & Grow Chick used the example of track and field when the person running the fastest (rabbit) is closely followed by the 2nd place runner. The ‘rabbit’ is the one setting the trend.
-Whatever is your goal there is someone that already achieved it so instead of being jealous take note of what they do . Being consistent is key!
- Find Puzzle pieces
– Break down your goal to 5-10 things and find out what it takes for each puzzle piece
-Choose what you can work on at the moment and continue everyday
