Expert Goal Formula: What Why How & First
2018 holds the possibility of being better than any other year!
A great way to ensure your intentions are realized is to follow a method I use and call the “What, Why, How and First Formula.”
What: Write down in as few words as possible what it is you want to be, do or have. Be specific. The more specific, the more likely you’ll make it happen.
Why: Spend time contemplating all the reasons you wish to have this new reality. You’ll probably need to come up with at least 5 reasons, but there is ONE that really drives your desire. Hold on to that WHY, it is the KEY to your success.
How: Write down 1 to 3 ways in which that goal could happen. Perhaps you need to take a class, or get up early, or find an accountability partner. How are you going to make that goal happen?
First: The final step is to come up with ONE first step. What is the FIRST thing you can do towards making that dream happen, and by what date will you do it? The first step may be just to make a list of things you have to do! The point here is to break down the How into achievable steps and take at least one small step towards your goal every week.
Good luck y’all. Wishing you the best year ever!
