Goals are great time-accelerating devices if built and used correctly. Keep in mind that goals can be dangerous if not created in way that balances both your career and personal lives. The following goal workshop steps are the culmination of 20 of the best goal-setting tools I've ever tested:
The rest of the workshop follows the exact same routine, except now you're focusing on your Financial and Material Goals. Repeat steps one through six for both your Financial Goals and Personal Goals.
Creating your goals means absolutely nothing, unless you commit to using them!
Review your Personal, Financial, and Material Goals Cost vs. Rewards daily, meaning at least 5 days every week. This creates the focus to build the necessary blinders to your daily distractions. Review the chronological listing of all of your short and long-term goals at least once a week. This allows you to be on a frequent and consistent lookout for opportunities for action to fulfill longer-range goals. And every 3 months or so, reevaluate all of your goals and create new Costs vs. Rewards as needed.
