Goal Setting

New Year's ResolutionsIt’s that time again…

The ball has dropped.  It’s a new year.  And many people have picked their annual “resolution.”

Unfortunately it’s been my experience that New Year’s Resolutions are a complete waste of time.  Even worse – Some resolutions actually prevent people from achieving their goals.

Think of it this way…  Imagine it’s the final minutes of year.  You make a resolution simply because everyone else is doing it. [click to continue…]

Whenever I tell people I work from home, this is the common reaction, “I could never do that because I would spend all my time sleeping or watching T.V.”

It’s pretty amusing to hear a statement like this because I’m not a very motivated person.  I don’t live my life like an over-caffeinated Tony Robbins clone.  Like a lot of people, I have those periods where I don’t want to do anything.  Yet, I always find enough motivation to work on my goals and get a lot accomplished each day.

One of the biggest moments in my life was when I made the decision to give up the 9-to-5 routine and start my own business.

You were excited because you were going to change your behavior once and for all, and you told yourself “I’m gonna do it this time, for real!” but then it happened …  you somehow wound up back in your old ways.

Here’s another post provided by James.  In this one, he a gives a number of helpful tips anyone can use to set (and follow-through) with their goals.

Before I came overseas I saw a bumper sticker that claimed, “I put the pro in procrastination!” and I had to chuckle because I know firsthand how easy it is to put things off. It’s all too easy to say “I’ll do it later,” when it’s time to tackle something. Later often becomes tomorrow, and tomorrow winds up becoming next week, and then next week … well, you get it. It’s a vicious cycle.

June 22, 2010

Here’s a really interesting guest post by Jonathan of the Grokkery site. In the following article he discusses a few simple changes you can make to your life in order to make a dramatic change. What I really liked is how he used 30 day trials to develop new habits. This is something I used to do before I left on trip to Europe.
