It’s late August, the 8th month of the year. We’re more than half way through 2015. Question is, what have you done? Have you stopped to think about that?
Lets get a little specific because time is moving faster than ever.
It’s Tuesday. The second day of the week, mid day. What have you done? Have you thought about that, or are you just floating through the day?
Here’s a tip to make your day and the rest of your year productive.
Minimize your goals. If you continue to only set yearly goals (when the New Year rolls around) you’ll lose your momentum– generally within the 1st month.
Chop it up a bit.
Set monthly goals – by October I want to be here. Then weekly goals – by next week I want to learn this. Then daily goals – today I will complete and finish up this and that. Write them down to remind yourself of your potential.
Daily goals are your money moves. Completing daily goals will refuel your goals and increase your momentum. It keeps your productivity up. If your goals aren’t good enough for you to plan and write out everyday, don’t except to achieve what you want. Maybe your dreams aren’t good enough for you to pay attention to.
Days, weekends, months, years. Time will pass. If you don’t plan for it, it will not plan for you. Think about your goal and life as a football game. If you’re the coach and your team is about to play in the biggest game of the season, what’s your game plan?
Charlie Munger, an investor worth 1.3 billion says, “The world is not yet a crazy enough place to reward a whole bunch of undeserving people.”
Your daily goals will refuel your ultimate plan. If you’re trying to be apart of the top 10 businesses in the country (overall goal), what are you doing today to make sure you are an outlier – a valuable asset that cannot be duplicated?
Refuel your goals and get obsessed with planning or be average.
