Any idea how?

Hey,

Thanks for sharing your posts! Actually I feel implement the right strategies and following them is very much necessary to achieve the goal and it is attitude that matters everything in every walk of life.

Something that I have found to be invaluable in setting and achieving my goals was to create a mission statement.

Before I did that I was scattered and even when I achieved my goals, often they really didn't fit with my main objective.

I wrote an article about creating a mission statement for your business that you may find helpful.

One of the steps is creating a personal mission statement as well, that is your base to work from (for instance, if your personal mission statement is to leave the world a better place, then your business mission statement isn't likely to be to get rich through duping your customers :0).

honestly, goals don't work for me really.

I am a type of guy who likes to SOLVE PROBLEMS. Eben Pagan mentioned this in his Get Altitude program. Most people don't want to set up goals, they want to solve problems.

Goal: I want to learn German
Problem: I feel that I'm missing a lot by not learning German, I must learn it so I finally don't miss this damn it.

Then, of course, you can progressively get your goal into a more 'positive' one once it becomes a habit.

I hope at least you understood what I'm saying lol.

I do understand this and agree.

Setting a goal puts it 'out there'. Maybe it's because setting things subtly implies the future.

Solving a problem keeps it within your control and is an action verb that applies to the now.

Your example illustrates it well, the difference between the goal - 'want to learn German' and the action - 'must learn it'

It's a fine line but it seems that when dealing with our own minds, every
little bit helps :0)

It brings to mind Jim Edwards saying "Don't hope, expect". Somehow the terminology makes the difference.

I have it on a sticky on my computer.

I'm taking Eben Pagan's Wake Up Productive course, I really like it so far.

Interesting how a thread spans almost over a year.
Goal: I want to learn German
Problem: I feel that I'm missing a lot by not learning German, I must learn it so I finally don't miss this damn it.

Shouldn't it be tzhe other way round?
Firstly identifying the problem and then setting the goal to solve the problem?

Write down your main goal and stick it on the wall. Write down your smaller goals for each day and put it where you can see it. Make sure you actually do what you set to do.

If you'd like a tool for setting your goals, you can use this web application:

http://www.Gtdagenda.com

You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
A mobile version is available too.
