Brian Tracy Goal Setting Guide
Brian Tracy has written down a good guide for goal setting. He hasn’t added anything which is not common sense, if you have already read the basics of this topic. You can get his article for 0$ here, you just need to subscribe to the newsletter. Of course you can use trash-mail.com or so, but he is an excellent source for information about personal development and productivity. I just learned he has an app for this process too, but I haven’t tried yet.
Regarding his guide, I especially like the Rule 2: “Write it down”. Writing it down and read it regular, is a good exercise to stay focused on your goals. But even he can’t do the magic for you, the habit of self-discipline is necessary to achieve what you want.
If you have set your goals and planned the next steps, it is natural to loose focus or get overwhelmed by the daily business. To keep focus and plan your day, I have found this comprehensive summary of “26 Time Management Hacks I Wish I’d Known at 20”. It has all the necessary tools to achieve your goals. Good luck!
