Welcome fall! Did you know it’s only called fall in North America the rest of the world uses the much more formal word autumn.
I love fall and as many people are getting ready to snuggle in for the winter I find it is the perfect time to kick thing up a notch in your life. Why wait until the New Year to begin looking at goals start right now!
So grab your goals sheet. Did you forget that you had goals and right now you are searching through a stack of papers to find them? No matter, today is the day to pull them out and kick it into gear, no excuses you still have three months.
It’s also a good time to review those goals and pick one. Too many goals makes it overwhelming to think about, it is easier to focus in on the ones you still want to achieve this year. Reviewing them now will keep you motivated and give you some momentum to reach the end of the year ready to begin a brand new plan for the New Year.
Maybe they were too easy for you and you have attained them all, don’t hold off pick some new goals. Overall only 12% of people reach their goals. Men are 22% more likely to achieve goals if they engaged in creating a list of goals and women are 10% more likely if they are encouraged to persist. So men write them down and women tell your family and friends you need encouragement!
Do you need help setting goals? There are a number of good audio programs, my personal favorite is Zig Ziglar’s “Goals; Setting and Achieving Them on Schedule” by Simon and Schuster. Zig is a pretty amusing guy and if you haven’t heard him speak you are in for a real treat.
Did you realize that Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years all within about a two month time period and approaching fast. So get those goals in place and soar with me right through the holidays into the New Year.
Joie de vivre!
