This simple routine can and will inspire greatness. And, don’t be surprised in what direction it may take you.
Take a piece of paper and on the top write the words 10 Goals along with today’s date.
Now ask yourself, if you could only accomplish one goal, but you would have to accomplish this goal within 24 hours, which one goal would have the greatest positive impact in your life?
Really think about the goal that would give you the greatest positive impact: it could be financial, it could be emotional. Trust me, that one goal will jump off the page at you.
Circle that goal, turn the paper over and write that goal at the top of that page, along with a deadline to achieve that goal.
Underneath that, write down anything and everything you’ll need to do in order to accomplish this goal. Do a mind dump; writing everything that immediately comes to mind in order to accomplish this.
Some of these may be obtaining a higher education, becoming certified in your desired field. Or these Must Do’s may be something more immediate such as signing up for a gym membership, or starting the process of putting your house up for sale.
Leave no Must Dos in your mind. Everything necessary to achieve this goal must be written down.
Then, every day do one thing necessary to getting you closer to achieving this goal. One thing, every single day.
You may have to work on one thing for days, or weeks, or even months - but commit to doing one thing every day to get you closer to your desired goal.
The key word is commit!
People begin to become great when they determine their purpose. In one year’s time you can look back at that paper and not only be astonished at where you are, and what you’ve achieved but you’ll have a great sense of purpose and accomplishment.
