“All you need is the plan, a road map, and the courage to press to your destination.” ~ Earl Nightingale
How are your 2015 goals coming along?
To tell you the truth, I struggled lately. As I tell everyone in my goal setting workshops, this is normal. Anywhere between 2-6 months into changing a behavior you can start to struggle, especially if it’s something really new in your life. Your brain kicks in and says, “It’s time to get back to normal.”
That’s what happened to me. You would think I was past this, but the subconscious is tricky. The only reality it knows to be true is your old self. It takes determination, and I discovered a road map, to convince it you are going in the right direction.
Go Back To The Road Map
I always outline my goals. This week, however, I went back and revised my plan. I outlined a more detailed road map down to my daily actions, because I now know the pitfalls. This plan will help me avoid them moving forward.
Reaching a goal is changing a behavior. You need to have other tools than willpower at your disposal.
This week, if you’ve found yourself drifting from your goals, pull them out again and create a road map for yourself. Not just for the year, but for the month, week and even day. It will make all the difference.
