A few thoughts on our favorite topics... Remember, we're all about helping you achieve your goals without being overwhelmed in the process.
Every year in July, I sit down with Viv and review my annual goals to check in on my achievements, hardships, obstacles, and opportunities. Over the year’s she’s learned that I’m not just having a crazy break down, but that this is my moment where I grow, and push myself to strategize on how I learn, push past discomfort, shed another layer of the onion, so I can achieve my goals.
This year, especially, I think she thought I lost my mind. Mainly because I kind of did. We accomplished so much in the first four months, yet I was beating myself up for some reason. We worked with some of our dream clients, Apple, Bloomberg, and were preparing ourselves to manage a 5-year multi-million dollar project starting in the fall. So Viv asked, “why was I so flustered?”
In reality, Viv had to force me to be honest and earnest in my evaluation, we were leveling up in a different way. She reminded me, the #1 reason people have a hard time accomplishing their goals, is because they lack the connection, intention, and commitment of their values behind them. She broke down the different aspects of our lives, the failures, and losses, accomplishments and success–attached to both our personal and business goals. We hadn’t met quite a few of our goals, but they’d been replaced by larger opportunities. I’d gotten stuck in the tunnel vision of checking things off our list to say we had done them, and lost sight of our vision. Our goal has always been to continue to build a legacy for generations to come, with intention, direction, and hustle. And we were doing just that, and in some ways faster than my mind could fathom.
Once you decide what you really want to do, all you need is a strategy to accomplish it. You have to put action behind your goals, or they just remain pies in the sky or writing on the wall that you never commit to. So, here’s our straightforward way for achieving goals, and of course we call it Goal Setting the GoodLife Way:
I know, this makes so much sense and seems super obvious. But if that’s the case, how come so many people struggle with reaching their goals and why are so many failing? Because most people fail to plan. You have to set aside time to plan how you will “Get Stuff Done”.
We’re all juggling so much, and that’s why it’s important to break your goals down. Breaking them down makes them tangible, reasonable, and a lot easier to accomplish. Everyone says it’s not real until you write it down, at GoodLife we say “It’s not real until you break it down”. So go ahead, break your goals down….they’re just a list of simple tasks that get overwhelmed by distractions if you fail to plan your own success.
