OK, I know you can read a calendar, but in case you hadn’t realised, there’s only 12 WEEKS until 2018 is done and dusted.
There’s a lot you can achieve in that time. So, I’m gonna issue you (and me!) a challenge.
If there’s a goal you set for 2018 that you haven’t achieved yet – let’s bloody well make it happen over the next twelve weeks!
AND before you click out of this email, annoyed that I’m asking you to add more to your To Do list, let me be clear: I know you’re busy.
So, I’m only going to share tips that will make achieving your goals easier.
Right, so let’s kick off with Tip No. 1: Cut your goal a little slack.
What does that mean? Well, if your goal was to save $10,000 by the end of the year, but you haven’t yet saved a single cent, maybe you need to adjust your target figure to something more achievable within the next three months.
I’ll be honest, it feels weird for me to recommend a tip like this, because I’m all about setting big goals. Ones that scare you and excite you and compel you to act. That’s why I created School of Champions, to help people achieve goals like that!
But sometimes, it’s better to achieve a smaller version of your goal, than to achieve nothing at all. – Tweet it!
I’m taking my own advice here too.
Over the next twelve weeks, (and once my foot heals up from surgery) I’m going to start training for my first event since having Hak! I’ll be taking part in the Kathmandu Coast to Coast, held in NZ next February. It’s an epic bike/run/kayak adventure race and I’ve always wanted to do it!
BUT I’m not doing the full Coast to Coast. I’m doing the Mountain Run component of it. It’s a 31.5km run up, as the name would imply, a mountain – go figure! 😂
I had the option of doing the full race, but the Mountain Run is a big enough goal for me right now. It’s going to force me to get back into a training regime and I’m gonna be really damn proud of myself when I get to the top of that mountain in Feb!
So, whatever your goal for 2018 is, consider making it a little more achievable.
The confidence you get from achieving a smaller version of your goal will help create momentum – it will spur you on to achieve bigger and better things in 2019!
That’s something to be excited about.
Now, as your first step of commitment to your new goal, tell me in the comments below what you’re going to achieve over the next twelve weeks!
Do it now.
Next week, I’ll be sharing the two questions I ask myself whenever I need a little extra help getting to my goal.
Stay tuned for that.
