Last year this post was well received…
…so here’s an update for the coming year.
Once again the great John Carlton has republished…
…in what seems to have become an annual tradition (and a very worthwhile one).
Marc Harty has a great post…
I love this idea of “theming”. What it does is provide the “Big Picture” and the general direction of progress that you wish to make.
It fits well with the Carlton post.
Last year I included links and suggestions to a number of different goal setting and success systems.
Look, they are all great but this year I’ve decided to keep things simple.
There’s really no great “secret” to goal setting and success. Sure, each approach has it’s unique features and subtle variations that can be helpful.
BUT as John Carlton says…
“…there are dozens of newer goal-setting guides on the shelves. But they’re all based on the same formula:
1. Decide what you want.
2. Write it down, and be specific.
3. Read the list often, imaging as you read that you have already achieved each goal.”
That’s it, basically. If you want something a little more substantial, Mark Joyner’s “Simpleology” program has been revamped…
…and it’s free to access the basic level program.
So, get clear on what you want and get to work. EARN the success you want.
You know, in recent weeks I’ve come across this idea a lot from successful people sharing their experiences.
There is no great “secret” that will magically bring you success. Sure there are some shortcuts and ways to make things a little easier.
But in essence it’s down to what Tony Robbins describes as “The Ultimate Success Formula”…
1. Decide what you want
2. Take massive action
3. Get feedback and review your results. If necessary, make changes.
4. Continue until goal is achieved.
Read the Carlton post BEFORE January 15 (if you don’t, well just do what’s suggested anyway!).
And here’s wishing you every SUCCESS in 2013!
Some wise words from the great Drayton Bird…
UPDATE 2 (14 January 2013):
In keeping withe the general theme of this post to keep things simple, here’s a very worthwhile post from Jim Edwards…
In that post, Jim provides what is one of the most valuable tips I can think of for a successful year (at least in your business)…
…set up a MARKETING CALENDAR!
Jim’s webinar on this topic is a great resource. If you want a simple “no-frills”, completely free resource, go here…
