    New Strategy for Goals and Habit Change?

    IDEA 
    Hello all, The other day, I was brainstorming a way to keep myself on track with forming new habits and breaking habits that are bringing me down as a person. I eventually landed on an idea of a points system. For me, it helps to really see my progress from week to week or month to month. So...

    The New 1/5/10 Daily Planner from MJ (w/gamification)

    EXECUTION 
    As I mentioned on the INSIDE, I created a new 1/5/10 Daily Planner that I started using and after 2 weeks of using, I love it even more than my old system. (Meaning it is more effective).

    NY Resolutions? No, try making a 1/5/10 Planasy

    MINDSET 
    Since it's the New Year, it's a good time to remind people to examine their 1/5/10 Planasy, if they are written. This plan, coupled with a weekly and monthly reminder of goals is how to realistically achieve goals, unlike most of the world who only makes goals the first week of January. This...

    Has anyone really reached their goals?

    MINDSET 
    Hi folks, I'm curious. Has anyone here in this forum really reached their initial goals? By that, I mean starting with nothing, and deciding "I will do X and earn X in X days/weeks/months/years" and actually achieved it? I don't know, it seems to me pursuing a goal is actually...

    Goal Setting Journals - Recommendations

    Over the years, I’ve seen a few different types of goal setting journals, but never actually bought one as I wasn’t convinced of their value.

    Outcome Based Goal Setting

    MINDSET 
    I have to admit, it is really frustrating when it comes to trying to build a business if you have no clue what steps you should take next. Then I grew sick and tired of not moving forward because I lacked direction; so I found a solution. Instead of trying to look forward into the future and...

    Goal setting.

    HOT! 
    Studies tell us that only 3% of people in the USA set goals, and they are among the wealthiest people in the nation! Worldwide the percentage is probably lower. Why so low?
